Visakhapatnam Cricket Holidays & Tours
If you can’t quite get your tongue around its full name don’t worry! Locals in Visakhapatnam call this sunny city Vizag. Here on the shores of the Bay of Bengal you’ll find an attractive blend of beautiful beaches and mountains with magnificent views. No wonder it’s been nicknamed both the Jewel and Goa of the East Coast. Sandwiched in between these sky high and seaside delights the city also hustles and bustles with a variety of attractions and a lively café and restaurant culture.
Visakhapatnam is one of the oldest port cities in the country. Situated in the heart of Andhra Pradesh, Visakhapatnam is known for its picturesque beaches and serene landscape, as well as a rich cultural past. The port of Visakhapatnam is renowned for being home to the oldest shipyard in all of India. Located a short distance away from Visakhapatnam is Araku Valley, one of the prime attractions of Vizag. Situated at a lofty 910 metres above sea level, Araku Valley is a hill station replete with gushing waterfalls, crystal clear streams, lush green gardens and some challenging trekking trails.
Many Visakhapatnam attractions make a nod to the sea and no more so than a string of golden beaches. The most famous are the crowd-pleasing Ramakrishna Mission Beach and the bijou, half-moon Rushikonda Beach but there are six others close by. Other Vizag seaside attractions include the Kursura submarine museum and Dolphin Nose promontory. Further inland you’re guaranteed great views and fresh air at the park in Kailasigiri.
