An avid sea lover will give anything to return to the bliss of magnificent blue waters. He will make use of every opportunity to catch a glimpse of the sea. Since forever, the sea destinations have been a travel junkie’s dig, and a true travel enthusiast would never avoid a thickly crowded beach as for them the peace comes from the chattering crowd, wails of children, shutterbugs, and others. So deep down inside, if you’re also a pathological sea lover, here are some places to visit in Diu and Bheemanipatnam, both unsung and drenched with pristine beauty.
It has a long trail of history that proves the existence of Buddhist culture.
The breathtaking tourist junction in Andhra Pradesh has many other attractions apart from the beach:
- The lighthouse built during 1868 on Bheemili Beach.
- The old Christian Church called ‘The Red Church’ constructed back in the 1850s, “The Andhra Baptist Church” enriched with history,
- The birds-eye view of Gosthani River from the hilltop temple,
- Vizag-Bhimili beach road which is a tourist’s den,
- The Red Earth Hillocks that resemble mini Chambal Valley,
- Lord Narasimha temple on the hillock,
- The commercial town Thagarapuvalasa situated 5 km away from Bheemanipatnam,
- The English graves, in the Hollanders Green.
The remains of Dutch, Buddhist and British rulers bleed history and leave you mesmerized. So if you have had the sea to your heart’s fill, don’t forget to visit the historical remains and the rural areas. The sculptures on the sea beaches stand witness to southern artistic genius. Get a wholesome tan after a worthwhile sun-bath besides enjoying the beaches and surroundings.
