Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh

Recommended Posts

 
It’s awesome to hear it from a localite [mention=1401]sha52rath[/mention].. is there any source for a decent stay around this place..? Or Is Vijayawada the only option we have got?
 
Also, Please let us know if camping is possible on the beach for a night. It would be great to hear back from you on this..? 
 
Thanks in advance mate!


Hi sagar,
I do stay in Secunderabad Sainikpuri, born and bought in Chennai, but all my relative do stay in avanigadda, machavaram, Koduru, vetapalem other places.

Well Decent stay would be very difficult, it’s not good for overnight camping for family as it’s completely lonely place, if you have bunch of friends, yes you can. You will not find stay near by, or you can stay either in avanigadda or repalle a drive of 35 & 50 km to destination. and vijayawada would be too far for stay. You will be literally tired in return.

you can visit a temple mopidevi Subramanya swamy temple in mopidevi village which is very famous which is near to avanigadda, Let me know when are you planning to visit. Will try my best to help you. Sen me your contact no. I will talk to my brother in law, he will will definitely help you in Koduru.

We stayed in Vijayawada during our lat visit.

 

There is a huge spike in crowd.

Place became very famous recently.

Don't go to this place during Dussehra and Sankaranthi. 

Highly crowded, on regular days, it is almost empty. 

Weekend crowd is still average, it is on verge of getting commercialised.

Great to hear it back from you bro. It’s so awesome to know that there won’t be a problem for camping on the beach.. but, is this a sure shot information that we don’t have to take any permissions and just go do our camping? Won’t it be an issue from the cops or the villagers staying around?

You can camp but from my experience, it is not so secured.

If we are a group of guys we can manage, but with families it may be difficult.

Hi sagar,

Yes you can stay around, but not recommended, no permission required, usually people don’t stay. Not good for families for a bunch of boys, yes.. you can.

I heard Hamsaladeevi got crowded similar to Suryalanka beach, Is it true?

 

It has become quite busy during the weekends and public or festive holidays. Otherwise, it is still not as busy as Suryalanka is :)

You don't have any decent stays around Hamsaladeevi beach. (expect for few home stays)

You can stay at Vijayawada.

 

Try to visit early in the morning, it is fantastic. (5AM)

@Ranger @arifismyname amazing pics. Drones brought different perspective to photography and videography. That last picture is stunning!

Flying a drone is legal in India now. Depending on the classification of the drone, you need to register and get a license to fly it.

It is legal, but there are many restrictions.

Drone size, flying zone etc.

 

Overall, It is worth it.

Price is getting cheaper year by year.

 

I think with in a span of three years,

Drones will can be accessible at a reasonable price point.

      Dear ALL,
      I am planning to travel to tirupati from Hyderabad by in a automatic car.
      Don't want to take bad roads. Can anyone please suggest the best route?
    • By travel.rtc
      This trip happened  during Novemeber 1st week 2018 and November first being our 9th Marriage Anniversary - we wanted to celebrate it in Mysore hence drived down to Mysore and to Ooty .
       
      Started 10:00P:M from Hyderabad and highway was little busy with all RTC and Private Buses towards Bangalore and different parts of Rayalaseema.....we stopped at Kurnool Toll Tax and then started again but started being on a working day after tiring office work has shown the tiredness and me being only driver for the entire trip took good breaks ...we stopped between Kurnool and Anantapur near some petrol bunk and after Anantapur in the early morning to take some power naps ....Reached Bangalore Outskirts by 7:30 ..
       
      The Morning Mystic view of Nandi Hills and surroundings was awesome and Bangalore Highway is very very super road except few speed breakers else so much fun to drive straight road.
      -- We Stopped at Hotel Nandi Upachar : https://goo.gl/maps/LwP1NeFtZoG2 
      Hotel was very very Decent and Has Nice Rest Rooms and ample parking place  - had quick refresh and Nice break Fast and there was Some Minister Visiting the Hotel and traffic was halted ...we had to further wait for 30 more minutes and started at 9:30 A:M and it took us some time to cross Bangalore and Hit Mysore Highway - as usual Bangalore traffic took a toll on us and Mysore highway was little busy.
       
      We Stopped at Kamath  for quick Lunch and then Started for Mysore .
      I have a friend who works in Travel agency in Bangalore , he generally takes care of hotel bookings or cab bookings if needed whenever we are around  he has booked a room for us in Mysore  at Hotel Vyshak Residency - Hotel was good and has Hot water Supply all the day  - This )hot water)  is one of the must for the Hotels around that place in Winters 
       
      -- Next Day Early Morning we went for Chamundi Temple  - Chamundeshwari Devi -One of the ShaktiPeeta ,We had good Darshan and had some prasadam at their kitchen.
       
      While returning, at the Parking Lot My mother overheard some one saying Ooty from Here is 160 kms - She immediatley said to me its 160 kms which means like Hyderabad - Nizamabad [Nizamabad being my Native]
      She asked me ,Shall we go to Ooty too.
      Who can deny an drive down to Ooty and I said immediately OK and haven't said anything about Road -,she was not aware of Ghat road and being traveled  on Butter smooth Roads from Hyderabad till Mysore she expected it to be same straight roads....but later she was scared to the max after Gudalur when it was pitch dark and raining and Ghat Road Started
       
      We had a quick visit to Shri Ganapathi Sachidanda Ashram and started for Ooty at 2:30 P:M  - if any one has this in bucket list when they visit Mysore and wants decent stay they can ask for room in Ashram campus and it is pretty less compared to outside while returning  to Hyderabad we have to stay in Mysore as it was night when we returned to Mysore from Ooty and we asked an room for accommodation as  it falls left while entering Mysore and they gave us a Big room was charged 500 Rs - all facilities were provided indeed 
       
      Took little while to cross Mysore , later we had took some time to find an ATM to get cash and has to look for ATMs in NanjanGud , the Route taken was Via :
      NanjanGud  - > Gundlupete ->Bandipur -> Gudalur -> Ooty
       
      ---- Took Right turn after GundluPete  and went 11+ kms to visit Gopalaswamy Betta ....But now cars are not allowed to be driven till the temple and one must Take Karnataka Tourism Buses ...and those will be plied till 4:000 P:M By the time we went there its was 4:00 and we dont has an Option and it started getting dark  and we started back , returned to Gundlupete and reached Bandipur
      Same friend of mine booked a Room for us in  3 Star Hotel - Hotel Preethi Classic http://www.hotelpreethiclassic.com   which was closer to city center and had quick tour of Tea Factory , Botanical gardens did shopping at Tibet Market - Finding Good food in Ooty is little tough and we had our breakFast at A2B and its pretty decent and good .
       
      Return Journey was Simple - Stopping here and there for few clicks and my car being Wagon R and people cautioned about clutch issues generally occur in that route and asked me to take some breaks and give some time for car and then start ...slowly reached Gudalur and it took sweet 4 hrs including photo breaks and tea breaks , Reached Mysore by 8:00 P:M  ,me being no mood to drive  wanted a break and i thought of starting next day early morning , and went to Ganapathi Sachithananda Aashram  -
       
      They allotted a room  , we went to near by restaurant and had dinner - Next Day Morning after a good nap and fresh-up started at 5:30 A:M to Bangaore- Hyderabad , Had Break fast at A2B Food Court after Mysore on Bangalore Highway [Excellent and Neat rest Rooms] 
      Crossed Bangalore in midst of heavy traffic and being Monday it was very very tedious to cross Bangalore - Had stop after Bangalore at Shell Bunk and topped up the fuel ,they have checked the car and i took their engine oil and they did the oil change in quick time and started for Hyderabad . Bangalore Highway is one of the best roads i have driven and being day time we can find less traffic on Roads and one can certainly get bored too ...went into Anantapur town in search of a good mess for Lunch but traffic made to change our plans and we stopped at Dhaba some where in between Anantapur and Kurnool  highway .
       
      After having Some Rotis started for Hyderabad which was Straight Road with speed breakers here and there
