The beach offers breathtaking views of both the sea and the mountainside. Although not a very long stretch, it is a perfect place to spend a quite evening. Waves are very strong and at places there are rocks, so bathing deep is not an option. Also I remember the beach being cleaner last time I visited about 10 years ago,... More

As per the local authorities and signboard, the beach is not safe for swimming. Not sure why this is not mentioned anywhere on the APTDC website.

This is one of the better beaches in India - refrain from indulging too much with the waves/water as they are rough and I have had a first hand bad experience here. Just don't venture too deep (which is probably 15 feet for this beach)

Relatively less crowded but what we liked was the speed boat experience. It was thrilling similar to the one at Kovala beach in Trivandrum. Not to be missed. The Jet Sky scooter ride is also a good one. Duration could be longer though.

Beautiful beach, one of the nice quiet ones Vizag has to offer. Don't miss this one. Be sure to walk the entire stretch to check out all the cool spots.

Once upon a time RK beach is famous in vizag now due to dumping city drainage directly into the sea the beach sand is black in colour and with horrible smell. Now Rushikonda beach is best one in Vizag but be careful while swimming in the beach. Heavy tides may suck you into the deep and you may loose ur... More

Dirty and full of litter.... didn't want to go in and take a bath in it.... It would be so much more pleasant if it were a clean beach... Really disappointed!
