Kondakarla bird sanctuary is located 50 km away from Visakhapatnam. There are quite a handful of migratory birds which is mesmerising to watch. Great place for bird watchers. Boating is provided on a two hollow toddy palm trunks carved and bound together with a plank.

This is Natural lake with lots of Birds and Lotus flowers. Its not too deep, can visited using Palm tree boats. But this lake is located around 50 kms far from Vizag and its very remote location area. Worth visiting.
