The Rishikonda beach is the picture perfect setting of the sea touching the hills. The semi-circular formation of the sea basin can be compared to the Queen's necklace !! The clear blue waters and the mystical seaside makes it the favourite beach for many. The best view is seen in the early morning before sunshine, when the sea remains calm.... More

When I visited in 2010, It was Great. You can go 1/2 km with just a knee of water inside the sea. So again we planned to visit in 2015. First we went at Rishikonda Beach but it lost it's beauty. Now it became an ordinary beach. Beach road is very beautiful till date.

Just opposite to it, the is a hotel haritha resort, one can stay there by advance booking. You can get food here. There is... More

The beach road that it takes us to Rishikonda beach is awesome. You will feel like you are travelling on USA roads. This beach is around 20mins away from city. You can see GITAM campus on the way. We enjoyed tender coconuts once we reach the beach after that we headed to beach. It has a beautiful view as it... More

Rushikonda Beach was once much more enjoyable to be at. Though in a nice setting it unfortunately isn't kept very clean and doesn't have much infrastructure. Now there is significant beach erosion going on due to strong monsoon swells, though I imagine it will get reconditioned over time. But it is closed to visitors while these swells are going on....
