Vizag or Vishakapatnam is a coastal region in Andra Pradesh. This new year we went to Vizag and enjoyed a lot, every year there is a festival held at end of the year on RK beach which gathers lots of crowds and turns the beach into life. If staying near around the Telangana or Andra then Vizag is the perfect place for celebrating the new year. Below is a list of places that you can visit in Vizag.
Rushikonda Beach – Vizag is all about beaches
One of the most visited beach in Vizag. The crystal clear water, lush green plants and wide golden stretch of sands attract everyone to this beach. It is an ideal place in Vizag to enjoy the water sports, and take a dip in seawater as changing room, clothes and every facility is available here. The beach has a great market near it and food options to make your trip more enjoyable. We went to the beach twice during our three days stays and played with water. This is my favourite place in Vizag among all.
Ramakrishna or RK beach – places to enjoy Visaka Utsav
Since we went on the new year we got a chance to enjoy the Visakha Utsav. It was the first time I enjoyed a live show of KK that too without any entry fee. Normally every year from 28th to 30th December this festival is held and there are various activities that you can enjoy on the beach. Such as – live concerts, different cuisine, different contests, sports activities, folk & classical performances, an amusement zone, and much much more.
