Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh

Recommended Posts

Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise

 

After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.

 

Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.

 

We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.

 

Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

Hamsaladeevi village welcoming us with the beautiful hay bundle

We found ourselves so lucky on our way to the beach as this empty land had offered us a chance to sight the meeting point closer. Usually, it is filled with water during high tides and heavy rains.

City showing off ;)

Getting ready for the drive on the sand bed. It is a 3 kilometers drive to reach the meeting point

This sandy land had some air to breathe ;)

As the port has heavy Tidal waves, we can see slight difference in water colour. But you can figure out the meeting point from a distance with the waves striking the river.

Even our city wants to pose with the beach

One more click please, says the city to the photographer ;)

Capturing the leafy moments

And the boats went deep into the ocean and faded away.

Have you ever seen a Honda city shying off at the river ;)

The sticks in the background are clear indicators of the water depth.

Here we go, The beautiful Bay of Bengal

The sand bed is at a same level for until 1 km, we haven't risked further though ;). It is a paradise for the swimmers.

You can see people going a little further into the sea and still at a same height.

Huge waves kicking in some fun.

The other side of the beach has an extraordinary view.

One of the best is, crabs building their homes by sand balls with beautiful designs everywhere.

Our return journey pumped us with a small stream line with the beautiful greenery on either side.

We were in awestruck by seeing this natural view with a combination of green and brownish red.

This places looks clean and far better than the Baptla beach which is getting overly crowded during weekends.

Always want to drive the car on a beach, but I never got a chance. Will visit this place for sure. Nice share.

Hey Shammy thanks a lot for sharing the details. If we are going do we have to book the hotel in advance or getting accommodation will be easy?

Locals discourage you to take your own vehicle as they want to charge money for the trip.

There is no problem as long as you follow the track. If you want to make your own road you defiantly need a 4*4.

Any car can do the regular track.

Hey Kulmeet,

Stay at Vijayawada is not a problem.There are plenty of OYO rooms available.

Even though if you use Google maps make sure you go through each and every place given in the route.

Let me know If you need any further information.:cooler:

Can we camp at the beach ?

I think it is not safe to camp on the beach, unless you are in a large group.
