  • Great view of the city from here. Difficult to find an easy way to get in here. Dangerous ghat road. Most of the space is taken for Naval officers quarters. Great view of the sea from the light house.
  • One of the best locations for an excellent view of the city, the harbour, the hills surrounding Vizag and the beautiful sea. It is not promoted as an important tourist destination probably because of the presence of Naval installations. The road is tough and there are not many tourist friendly facilities but the view is fantastic and worth all the trouble. If you have time then visit Yarada, a fishing village on the other side of the hill, beach is very nice.
