This place has a mesmerizing view of the vishakapatnam city at one end, the Yarada beach at the other and the sea in front. Visit the lighthouse at this hill; it has one of the best views. It’s a must if there at Vizac.

The area is mostly under the Indian Army, so clean and quiet, the lighthouse on top of the hills is a must watch place, you will love the view of the Vizag port from the top of the lighthouse.

The hill is in a shape of dolphin, so the name is.. You must visit the light house located on the Dolphin Hill. It's called as dolphin nose light house. The view from the top of the light house just excellent. It's open for only 2 hours..3 pm to 5 pm ..so plan accordingly.

The view of city and the bay of Bengal from the top of the light house is awesome, you have to climb stairs, so may not be suitable for aged persons and heart patients
