If one can attach a term ‘Virgin’ to beaches, Rushikonda could well earn it, for the beach is remarkably ‘unspoiled’. Just 8 Kms from Vizag, Rushikonda beach is a picture perfect setting featuring golden sands, surf, and sea alongside hill cottages overlooking a grand vista. For lovers of swimming and water sporting activities like skiing and wind surfing, Rushikonda is an ideal destination. At the end of a grueling session, one can always chill out at the bar cum restaurant attached to the cottages. To provide comfortable facilities to tourists, Andhra Pradesh Tourism Department has erected a number of elegant cottages overlooking the beach.
