Hyderabad to Suryalanka Beach, Bapatla

Recommended Posts

 

Writing in my first post of my recent trip to Suryalanka Beach, Bapatla minus the pics as was not aware of this wonderful app.

Started on our journey around 1730 hrs from Hyderabad (stay close to Kompally) n took the ORR from the Medchal part and was spared of the city traffic way till LB Nagar (close to Ramoji Film City) what a relief it was.

 

Started on the National Highway and was at Suryapet by around 1930 hrs.

Stopped at 7 on the left side for dinner n break. Very decent and great options with well maintained toilets.

Hit the road back at 8pm and travelled through the tolls and a very smooth ride until the outer Vijayawada area. (A few patches where you need to travel through the towns roughly 5-7 kms all in all).

 

Vijayawada is still developing and with the major govt offices, the infrastructure doesnot permit you to navigate easily out of this city.

Took close to 45 mins tbrough the narrow patches to get onto the smooth bypass road. Crossed the Krishna river n as we neared close to the Guntur city had to get off the vast expreasway on totbe service road and take the state highway (popularly called GBC Rod).

 

Road is extended and is smooth until Baptla a few villages you need to cross on way.

Total travel time was around 5 hours with us reaching around 2230hrs including breaks.

As you enter Bapatla, ensure you slow and follow road signs, Suryalanka (on your left) is what you need yo look for, few narrow patches but roads r being laid.

 

Village panchayat charges 50 rupees for a car at Suryalanka.

Was driving at a speed between 100-110kmph.

  • Vehicle: Renault Duster
  • Make : 2016
  • Mileage: 17kmpl
  • Fuel: Diesel

 

Had a wonderful trip and would look at a more detailed report with pictures next time around.

Nice report. Climate is not so great from March to June.
Seabreeze resort in Chirala has decent reviews.

APTDC is a decent place, you need to book well in advance.
