Day 2:We started as early as 5am in the morning from our hotel and headed straight to another beach known as the Rushikonda beach which was some 10kms from our hotel. It was such a beautiful beach, surrounded by natural rocks and green plants. It has crystal clear waters, less crowded and was quite clean as compared to the city beach (Rama Krishna beach). Such a pleasant weather and feeling the morning fresh breeze, spent sometime relaxing on the rocks and enjoying the fierce sea waves. Rushikonda beach is known for its water sports activities like kayaking, speed boating and scuba diving. Though scuba diving was not available that day, so we tried speed boating on a motorboat. It was a nice first time experience. We missed out the kayaking due to time constraints as we wanted to cover other places as well. Wish we had more time to visit this beach again. We enjoyed street side maggi on the beach (there were quite a lot of maggi stalls out there, reason being the locals make the maggi mixing the Andhra spices), which was quite spicy and lip smacking, one which you will always remember.
