    Beach north of Vizag

    by ChadSteve1975 Written Jul 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The beach... perfect for beach cricket

    So I don't know its real name... naughty me...

    We got taken to this beach north of Vizag for a day of fun on the beach.

    The sand is clean fairly wide beach... And best of all it's flat enough and firm enough for a game of beach cricket.

    We spent a couple of hours here just mucking around.

    Only off putting thing of the area are all the prawn farms and fishing industries along the coast to the north and south of the area... Leaves you wondering if the waters are polluted

    The Submarine Museum : A must visit place!

    by goutammitra Written Mar 9, 2013
    4 more images

    This is a must visit place to know and understand, how a soldier lives under a submarine fighting for the country and saving our lives from enemy! The INS Kurusura was commissioned in Indian Navy from Russia in 1969. It served till the '90s, then it was pulled out from the sea and made a live museum for the people!

    The soldier has to undergo training for months before he is commissioned in a Submarine as he has to be mentally very very strong. There is every possibility that he may suffer from Claustrophobia.

    This place is run by Indian Navy! There is an entrance fee of Rs.40/- per person and if you are interested to take pictures there is additional fee of Rs.50/- for a digital camera and Rs.200/- for a video camera.

  • Buying fish on the Beach

    by SLilaRamachandran Written Sep 17, 2004

    Do make it a point to visit the north end of Beach road where the fresh catch of the day is sold right on the beach. (Provided you can bear the smell of the fish)

    Its is great experience watching the vendors bargaining with the fishermen.
    I saw an Octopus (about 10ft long) for the first time in my life!
