  • Amazing view of vizag. Dolphin nose is famous for resembling the head of a dolpgin
  • Fantastic view Not to be visited after 8pm You might be prone to some serious offenders But before 8pm It's a lovely spot to hang out with friends Or to take your loved ones over there 😋😉
  • Great view of city, sea and the port. But there's nothing much to do. Light house remain open for 2hrs. 3pm to 5pm.
  • One of the best place in Vizag... Sea view amazing.... But not a loud this place
  • It is a rock formation that can be seen from everywhere in Vizag. This gives you a good view of the city and is a key attraction here.
