Best beach of Vizag. This beach is away from main city and is much better than other beaches. Prefer the morning or evening time to avoid sunburn.

Its really awesome place to have the time spent. Though it is bit far from the main city, yet people can spend the time without any hitch.

I heard a lot about this beach from fellow travelers. The beach is good, but not a standout. The beach is not so crowded as the RK beach, offers some beautiful views of the shores. If you need a quiet evening, a must visit for you.

Very few places will have hills and sea together, its a must see place and you will enjoy every bit of it if you plan to stay here for a day or two, especially at the APTDC Haritha Beach resort, Rishikonda.

The beach is located at just ~15 km from Vizag Railway junction/Bus stand. The best thing about this beach is, though it is easily reachable, the beach is very clean and not-so-very-crowded. The water is clear. Few corals can be seen. This is the place if you wanna have a dip in the sea :) You can just sit in... More

Just wow factor! Far from the hustle and bustle, the quiet and panoramic beach offers everything — from fun rides to beach shacks. A place where you can hit the sea without any possible danger as this beach is without rocks unlike the RK. You can also go for body massage on the beach!

The view of the semi circular cove of Rishikonda from the adjacent hill is breathtaking. The cottages on the hill run by APTDC are ideal for honeymooners and tourists who loves nature. There are other staying option in Saipriya Resorts. Bathing is possible but there is perpendicular current in the sea. Speed boating is an added attraction.
