Vizag Beach From Kailashgiri

Vizag is sometimes referred to as Goa of the east coast. Just like its
west coast counterpart, it has beautiful virgin beaches, reddish laterite
hillocks, smooth roads and stunning landscape. Health-tourism is a fast
developing industry. Visakhapatnam is variously referred to as Jewel on
the Coramandel Coast, Steel city, and the City of Destiny. The local
population is basically Telugu. There is considerable concentration of
Marwaris, Oriya, Bengalis, Punjabis, Tamil and Malayalees. In addition,
there is a large population of migrant workers from other parts of India
who have been drawn to the area by the abundance of work at locally
based companies, such as Eastern Naval Command, Vizag Steel Plant
and Hindustan Shipyard.

Take an evening stroll at RK Beach, it shall be a thrilling experience, it
offers good pedestrian tracks, beautiful parks, museums, beaches and
some wonderful open air restaurants.

Must want is the sunrise or a moonrise on a full moon day at Tennati Park
on the Vizag-Bhimili Beach Road its truly a feast to the nature lovers. The
sea looks orange in colour and is a wonderful sight.

A must visit is Kailasagiri 6 km away from the city centre. There is a park
on the hill top, from here one can see a beautiful view of the city, the sea
and Eastern Ghats merging into the sea. One can take a ropeway directly
facing sea and city. On the hill top there is a beautiful toy train that give a
glimpse of the beauty of nature that one can think of. There are several
view points that give a pleasant look of the nature. This place unlike
other hill stations is not yet commercial. One can have a very leisure
time without being disturbed by tourist guides. Once you come down from
Kailashgiri one should visit Tenneti Beach Park. Its picture perfect scenic
beauty along with luxuriant carpet grass intertwined with concrete
pathways makes it the most revered place for romantic couples. There
are several points from which the beautiful rocky beach down beneath
can be seen. That location is favorite for cinema shootings. Many Telugu,
Tamil and Hindi movies are shooted. The climax scene of Hindi Movie Ek
Dhuje ke liye , in which Rati Agnihotri after getting raped drowns into the
sea. Actually most of the people may not be aware that the movie is
Shooted in Vizag but not in Goa as they say in the movie. This movie was
a remake of Telugu movie śMaro Charitra . One more view point is there
in the park which is about 50 ft in elevation that gives a beautiful view of
the sea, beach road and the beach park.


Vizag offers a reasonably large selection of stores selling clothing,
jewellery, books, etc., While definitely not considered a shoppers
paradise, Vizag offers some unique handicrafts and can be located by the
Andhra Pradesh State owned handicraft store, Lepakshi. It has an
impressive collection of sandalwood sculptures, etc.
