Our Trip started from Hyderabad around 7 o'clock in the morning after the early breakfast. Hyderabad to Chirala by road is 5 hrs 30 min (302.1 km). It was the most memorable road journeys as we were 11 members traveling in a van and was fun. We had to stop at the check post from where we entered Andhra Pradesh. After a few kilometers you will find a small city. Where we got to eat some snacks in a bakery. As we had kids travelling we took extra water like 20 ltrs can and few snacks which saved all of us from hunger as there are no good dhaba's on the way. Our journey continued with few hassles as we were traveling in a van which could not pass the fitness test (Felt like killing the travel agent). Check post people allowed us to reach the next town which was few kilometers away. We booked another vehicle immediately and continued the journey. Finally we reached our destination around 2 o'clock. We stayed at a "Palm cost Beach Resort" where services were slow need to wait for almost an hour after ordering which wasted our time. We killed that hunger time by enjoying the view of sea from the resort.

Earlier, I have been to Suryalanka beach which is few kilometers on the north from chirala where we have harita resort which is good. However, I liked chirala beach better than suryalanka beach as it neater with less crowd and peaceful where you can enjoy the pleasant breeze and the soothing sound of the waves. After some snacks we could not wait anymore to enjoy. We all went to beach and while walking on the sand found tiny little baby crabs crawling all around the place really fast. It was an amazing experience, enjoying in the clean water and clean beach and awful sunset. When it was little dark we headed back to resort as there was less crowd few local people try to booze light up the bonfire. Had enough fun for that day.

Day 1

If you are planning to visit Chirala Beach please plan ahead well in advance to make sure you get the accommodation first as there are only few places to stay..

Day 2

Woke up around 4 o'clock in the morning as I was excited to see the sunrise. I also started hearing the sound of the waves which made me more excited. There was salty hard water in taps and had enough of salt experience. The water which we got from home saved us all for brushing our teeth. After an hour and half till everyone were ready we all went to the beach again to catch the sunrise. My husband and I were clicking the beautiful view of sunrise and everyone else were peacefully enjoying the nature. We got quite a good shots of sunrise and few fishermen were trying to catch the fish. After sometime, we saw one of the fishermens coming back to the shore and separating all the varieties of different fishes. Thanks to the fishermen he let me click photos of the different species of fishes and prawns, he also showed me how to hold a huge crab which was alive and scary though. Felt amazing seeing the colors of aquatics. Sea water was cold in the morning with breeze and a perfect sunrise.

It was 9 o'clock in the morning was time to say good bye to the beach where we all shared beautiful moments having a great time with family bonding.

FEW TIPS:

- Please carry few snacks or buy somewhere in between.

- Take little more water like we did if u have extra space in car.

- Carry your own medicines as there is nothing around.

- Just beside our resort one lady in a small stall was selling hot tea, coffee, egg and plain dosas. Which, we savored sitting on a bench under a huge tree with feet touching the cool sand. That was really a great breakfast experience. Later, we got to know that small shop owners cook dinner or lunch for tourists like us whatever we want to eat like local fish, country chicken, prawns etc.,.

- You can also buy fresh, cleaned prawns at a cheaper price (not Devin-ed). Apart from prawns, they sell varieties of fishes like Pom fret, Squids, Shrimps, Salmon, Crabs, Lobster, clams etc.. We purchased prawns in a good deal and they packed it neatly in a thermocol box.

This is my first review ever.. Hope it's little helpful.
