  • The journey on the 8 km motorable ghat road that starts from behind the Hindustan Shipyard Colony was itself very interesting

      When we went to see this beach for the first time about a year back we were awe-struck by the beauty of this place. There after we made a couple of more visits. In fact we fell so much in love with this place, we bought a piece of land in this area. I can say that this is one of the finest beaches in Visakhapatnam area.

      The beach is hidden from the city and surrounded by three hills on three sides and the Bay of Bengal on the fourth. One can have a spectacular view of the sun set and sun rise from this place. The beach is clean and unspoiled and is a tourist’s


      delight.

      It is a favorite picnic spot for the Vizagites. But the only difficulty is its approach and the distance. That may be one reason the area is still maintained clean.

      On has to cross a narrow road on the Yarada Hills to reach this place. Of course there is a good Naval Road available, but the access is restricted. Another road is being built by Visakha Urban development Authority, but we don’t know when it will be ready.

      The journey on the 8 km motorable ghat road that starts from behind the Hindustan Shipyard Colony was itself very interesting. Driving through this narrow road was adventurous for novices like me. Whenever a bus came from ...


      • the opposite direction, we had to go to almost edge of the valley.

        We were literally terrified. We had to negotiate over nine hair-pin bends and some steep gradients. Luckily we were traveling by Maruti 800 which is a small car and could easily negotiate the narrow road.

        There are some beautiful and breathtaking views en route. We can have different views of the city. On one side we can see the highly polluting industrial hub; on the other we could see the beautiful Harbour with ships, the Shipyard and the huge gantry cranes of Visakha Container Terminal.

        After crossing the Dolphin’s Nose, we could have a glimpse of the beautiful coast line and the Yarada

        Beach. The entire area is covered with hundreds of banana and coconut plantations. There isn’t much of an infrastructure development in this area excepting some property that is being developed by a private party, Agrigold, which had taken a part of the beach on lease from the Government and done some landscaping and developed a garden inside.

        Entry to the beach is restricted as it is a private beach. But there are entry tickets available which are priced at Rs 10/- per person. There is a good restaurant also once you enter.

        You can have nice snacks at reasonable prices. There are also some cottages available here if some body wants to stay here for a few days.
