Vishakhapatnam Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 93 photos

Vishakhapatnam is also known as Vizag, is a very popular tourist destination in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. It is famous for its gorgeous beaches surrounded with lush green hills. Vizag is dotted with many crescent beaches. Though I have been to Vizag for an official purpose, but still, I manages some time out to visits some of the popular tourist spots there.

In the first sight, Vizag is a small city with neat and clean roads, not too heavy traffics, well space, well planned city. But one can easily make out that it is built on Deccan Plateau, because most of the roads here have many ups and downs. Plain straight roads are rare to find. I visited Vizag in the middle of Monsoon. Everybody knows that India is a monsoon driven country. The rainy season here is very strong and especially the south India receives some highest average rainfall in the whole world. So I can easily say that my trip to Vizag is a full rain drenched one. But still a travel freak like me enjoys there a lot.

The best time to visit Vizag is around the end of November to mid of February. During this time the weather remains fine, bright and sunny, not too hot not bitterly cold. One can enjoy the travel to the fullest during this time. There are many good hotels to stay around Vizag, but some of the best are around the R.K. Beach. There are several food joints and good restaurants found around the city, serving all types of food, ranging from north Indian to south Indian cuisine to chinese to continental that permits every pockets. The street foods are a must try.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice, neat, clean having some beautiful locations......
  • Cons:The south Indian foods.........they are so sour
  • In a nutshell:Nice place to be in and spend some time in the lap of nature.
