  • This is a Naval area. In order to access the place you must have authorized pass. It's a Peaceful, clean and very fascinating area on the hill. The natural and shipping views are awesome from the top of the place. Though photography is strictly prohibited of Navy ship site areas but the beauty of town can't be ignored from the place. Must visit.
  • One of the best beaches to visit. The uphill drive and the descent after that is amazing. Driving gives you a better experience and the beach is very serene! The beach can sometimes be dangerous so stay cautious!
  • Nyc and calm place filled with greenery. Though you are not allowed to go inside naval areas but still a lot is left to enjoy. And specially its sunrise is wonderful
  • This lighthouse has an amazing view of the city and the ocean from the top. It's open for a short time( 2 hours ) , but if you reach early you can be the first ones to climb the top and enjoy the view for a while, since it gets crowded pretty soon on weekends. It's a bit far from the city but it's worth visiting.
  • Nice view but so.... Far for the Vizag difficult to go..... But the good place for ever one of the tourist place It is better to go on the own vehicle
