View of the city

It is a rock formation that can be seen from everywhere in Vizag. This gives you a good view of the city and is a key attraction here.

As the name depicts, this place resembles a dolphin's nose when seen from the various beaches of the Vizag city. It is a huge rock and provides a good panoramic view of the surrounding from the height of 175 meters. Nice place to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of the area; particularly in the afternoon or evening time.

This is basically a light house from where a wide view of the city as well as sea can be seen, but I did not found justification of travelling a long way for this spot.

Dolphin nose is a view. Where a mountain is resembles to a dolphin. So that's all about it. But on top of it, there is a light house. Which you can visit and view the entire bay of Bengal.
