You can see the Dolphin's Nose from RK Beach - actually the closer you get, the less you understand the structure. But there is a structure on top of the nose - a lighthouse. The lighthouse is open for public from 3 PM to 5 PM, and limited number of people are allowed to enter at a time. So there... More

Dolphin nose is about 20kms from RK Beach.It is a boring journey and at top of peak you see a light house which probably has lost its importance since GPs has been discovered.There is a radar also near by .U can have a beautiful look of sea from this place,but it is not worthy to travel 20kms from RK Beach...

It's a must-see attraction. The set-up is very basic and simplistic but the view of the sea from the top of the lighthouse is simply mesmerising.

Dolphin Nose is visible from RK Beach. But to get the real feel you have go top of it. There is light house on top of it and view from it excellent. We went to the light house, while returning from Yarada Beach. Actually to reach Yarada bech, you need to cross Dolphin Nose hill. On the way you need... More

This light house , that has a beautiful view of Bay of Bengal and Vizag port. The entry has information about other light houses in the area. Little steep climb, not suitable for elders. Entry, not properly regulated by the light house staff. They may need to allow people batch by batch only to avoid heavy rush. Tough to manage... More

It s a great observation point overlooking shipping yards with lots of green forest. SO fresh natural atmosphere you only dream after polluted cities. We also went swimming on the nearby beach.
