Visakhapatnam, also commonly known as Vizag, is one of the oldest port cities in the country that is situated in the heart of Andhra Pradesh. Visakhapatnam is known for its picturesque beaches and serene landscape, as well as a rich cultural past, which makes it an ideal spot for a fantastic coastal vacation. The port of Visakhapatnam is renowned for being home to the oldest shipyard in all of India.

Vizag is dotted with many beaches along its coastline. Yarada beach is the most famous one that is surrounded by majestic hills on three sides, and by the Bay of Bengal on the other side. This is one of the most stunning places to see in all of Visakhapatnam as the beach is cleaner and a lot less crowded than other famous beaches along the Indian coastline. It is the perfect place to sit back on the golden sands and witness a marvelous sunrise or sunset. Araku Valley is a hill station that is full of gushing waterfalls, crystal clear streams, and lush green gardens that is situated at a lofty 910 metres above sea level. It is one of the prime attractions of Vizag.

The Borra Caves are one of the best tourist attractions in Vizag nestled amidst the Ananthagiri Hills in Araku Valley. These Caves are over thousands of years old and are the biggest among all the caves found in India. The caves are kaleidoscopic in nature and are made entirely of natural karstic limestone. When the light falls on the rocks coupled with the waterfalls, it creates an extremely colorful effect. This provides an aura of magic and mysticism to the entire ambience.  

The Katiki Waterfalls, situated a short distance away from the Borra Caves, is a gushing waterfall that measures around 50 feet in height and is completely surrounded by the lush greenery of the valley. The crystal-clear water cascading down the rocks, bordered by the gleaming green foliage is a sight to must watch.

Kailasagiri is a hill top park in the city of Vishakhapatnam that is at 360 feet. It overlooks beaches, forests & the city of Vishakhapatnam. It is one of the best tourist spots in the city for a bird's eye view of the bay.
