G8 experience, Beach and hills combination rare

G8 place. You need to stay at least for 2 days to visit all places. Before site seeing, we may take a update on the place, so that we can prioritize our visit. We were not able to, datz the reason I'm sharing this input. Feel Sept to Dec will good period to visit and not during summer, because hills and beaches

Must visit at the Sunrise

Located just 8 kilometres from the port city of Visakhapatnam, RushiKonda Beach is known as the Jewel of the East Coast. The unspoiled beauty of the beach is its main attraction and offers a unique opportunity to relax and enjoy the golden sands and gentle ocean currents. The beach is a haven for watersports lovers and is popular among windsurfers and jet skiers.

A wonderful beach, with a vast area to explore.

The best experience in life. And we have captured our experience with Mi A1, which was a new phone at that time. We enjoyed a lot. And I have got no more words left to tell about my wonderful experience at Rushikonda Beach

Nothing extraordinary

The beach is okay there is nothing extraordinary you will see. The beach was not clean to an extent. You will get food and snacks along with coconut water near to this place so no hassle. Transport was easily available or if you are coming in auto so they can wait also.

Place with hills and sea.

Here you can ride ropeway to kailashgiri hill top and take a toy train ride to view the vizag city. Submarine museum is another additional bonus thing. Iskcon temple on Rishikonda beach for prayer and prasadam is a must in check list. Zoo in natural environment is treat for eyes.

Amazing Views

The Rishikonda Beach was a very nice beach. The scenic beauty of the sea beach along with the mountain was really mesmerising. The real good thing about the beach what I felt was, it was not that much over crowded. You can Bath, speed boating with motor boat in cheaper price by AP tourism development.

Scenic drive to beach

Rushikonda beach is about 10 kms from RK beach. The road is scenic. The beach has motorboat ride by APTDC. However, dur to widespread commercialization, the cleanliness of the beach is a bit low.

Nice clean beach with good view

This year Christmas day we visited Rushikonda beach with family. Since it was a holiday, many people flocked in. Many people were bathing there. The view of the bay was breathtaking. The colour of the water was blue with some rocky patch. We were amazed to see some small fishes had been trapped in the crevices of rock. My son immediately engaged in catching them by unsuccessful. There was ample scope for photography.

You shouldn't underestimate non-Goan beaches :D

One of most serene beaches I have been to. Very less crowded, really nice to go out for early morning walks. There is a state tourism guest house on a cliff, facing the beach. You can see a beautiful scenery of the beach from its 2nd floor. Outdoor restaurant of the guest house offers a great ambience. Anyone looking out for a relaxing outdoor gateway or a date night, should surely go to this place :)

Rishikonda Beach

Very clean, well organised. Good parking place, good affordable speed boat ride and jet ski. It's Rocky. Nice for Beach walk. There is a enclosure or artificial bay created by a breakwater for recreational swimming. One major flaw. No certified lifeguards.
