TOURISM in PRAKASAM District

1. Kottapatnam Beach

The clean sands and clear water of the Kothapatnam beach is perfect for a relaxing evening. The serenity and the flowing calmness of the sea waters with the sounds of the waveâ??s leaves you mesmerized to bring an unforgettable experience. The beach lines the coast of Bay of Bengal and runs along several kilometres. The beach is popular for picnic and serves as a recreational spot. The long stretch of sand encourages walks but the sun setting view on the beach is something to look for. The place has fresh wind blowing and the sun setting creates a pictorial image in front of the eyes. The beach is an absolute untouched stretch of golden sand and people who have an obsession for unspoilt nature can get your tents and get going.
