Things to Do in Visakhapatnam
Explore everything this city has to offer from the home base of your Visakhapatnam accommodation.

Back in the city, visit one of many major Hindu shrines or Buddhist temples, stroll the area's famous red-sand beaches, or take the cable car to the top of Kailasagiri Park for a view of the city and an up-close look at the park's massive religious statuary.
