In short known as the RK Beach of Vizag, this beach is located in the center of the city and is usually very crowded with lots of people ans stalls. A walk along this buzzing beach is always fun and you can also relax here after a busy day of shopping in the malls around this place. There are also a number of good restaurants around.

I woke up early to see sunrise at RK beach but unfortunately the sky was cloudy. Though I still somehow managed to get few good shots in the morning. Then I went back to my hotel and was out with my mates to explore far off places of Vizag.
After having our food we went to RK beach once again, now it felt as if we have been knowing this place for a very long time. We still enjoyed our time playing with the sand while simultaneously I was worried about little crabs biting my legs. Around 10 Pm. We went back to our hotel and were awake whole night sharing different stories, sharing drinks and other stuff as next day was a free day for us.
We dropped our luggage in our respective rooms and bought few cigarettes and beer and went to ‘Rama Krishna/RK beach’ which was nearest from our hotel. At night everything looked so calm at the beach it was only the tides that was breaking the silence and hearing the waves coming gave us immense satisfaction. Many of my classmates visited the beach for the first time and their excitement level was too high. They kept running at the beach playing around as if it was the first time they were given freedom. While I was sitting at a rock taking puffs from my cigarette and observing the serenity around me. After a while we went back to our hotel since next morning we had to leave for ‘Kakinada’ as early as possible.
Rushikonda and R.K beach : These beaches are in almost half hour distance. The most popular and the safest beaches of the city.
Vizag is popular for its two RK beaches – Ramakrishna & Rushikonda. Ramakrishna is bang in the middle of the city, reminding you of Band Stand in Mumbai, just that this is far prettier, far cleaner & much better maintained – not to mention the sandy beach that you can hop on to right across the promenade, unlike in Mumbai.
I had my plan set for 3 days and should agree, these days flashed in no time. Always look for your arrival around early morning just to ensure you do not miss the Excellent Sun Rise of the East. The Famous R.K beach, the closest with just about 5Km away from both Railway station and the State run Bus Depot (Locally called as Complex ) should be your first halt at early morning. Share autos would take you for 20-30bucks. It's a must watch!!Apart from the Road or the walk way at R.K Beach, you only have the Decommissioned Submarine to explore. The beach sand has often shades of black due to oil pollution caused by nearby Port and Dockyard. Because it being the closest to the city, You can see citizens of all ages on healthy walks.One sad part of vizag being that you have to search a lot for good food if you are staying around Railway station . For best deals and spices head to city center like Jagdambha center. You would see many hotels claiming Ethical Hyderabadi Biryani but I would reject all ;) Halaal non-veg food is very difficult.
