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.

The day I visited i.e. on 24/2/2014, the beach was bedecked with One Crore Linga for which Pooja will be conducted on Maha Sivarathri Day. A rare sight of 1,00,00,000 Lingas in one place. The beach is very calm, the tides are mild. You can see the replica of a Submarine and by the side you can see a statue... More

Pack your cloths and enjoy the bath in this beach. Great beach view and enjoy a nice swimming experience. You can buy local stuffs from the shops in this beach, but I did not so I can not recommend on price.

This is the only swimming beach near Visakhapatnam as the RK Beach in the city is close to the fishing harbour and has rough waves. There are also banana boat rides and sail boats. It also has good restaurants nearby for refreshments
