this beach is in contrast to RK Beach and waters are quiet, at least during our visit! the place is pretty and very nice. children will enjoy it. check out the local shell lined mirrors that are sold by beach shops.

When compared with there beaches in the city, this is the best as it is not very crowded. It's a nice stretch to sit and enjoy, not overcrowded by people, shops or sellers.

Its one of the most beautiful things in Vizag. The water is BLUE and clean. i went on a weekend and the beach was full of tourists (local and others) but the amusing part is that in spite of so many tourists the beach is located in such a way that everyone has their own space. Not many hawkers bothering... More

good beach. nice fun. people need to be more sensitive when throwing trash in the public place like this. trash spilled everywhere even in the ocean. no place to change dress if you get wet playing in the water. they should provide that. be careful on the right side of the beach as it is very rocky but clean water.

Probably the only beach in India where we see hills with sea. The scenic beauty is awesome. The beach is quite clean and is better than RK beach. One can bath in this beach. There are also water games present in the beach governed by AP tourism.

This beach is the best so far i have visited in visakapatnam. Beach has activity like water scooters, speed boats. Water was safe too for people to take a dip and swim. People was surfing the sea water. It reminded me of Goa and has great potential to develop in that style. Beach area was very clean with beach security... More

Rishikonda beach is a commercial beach. Littered with used bottles and plastic. The place offers all sorts of unlicensed vendors (eat at your own risk). The geographical location is fantastic if you can ignore the local mess. The sea is shallower than Yarada beach so you can run far into the water and take a dip safely. You will find... More

It was awesome experience to be there. I visited beaches in different cities but this was best. A bit away from city but very clean and so peaceful. We seated on a rock for around 2 hour but felt like its just 10 min only. When time will pass you will never know.
