From the Vishakhapatanam railway station, 8 kms away, lined by Jhau forest (Jhau tree resembles the Christmas tree) on one side and on the other surrounded by hills, semi-circled by sea beach, lies Rishikonda. Here the lush green hilly terrain meets with the sea. Nestling in the lap of nature, this serene and charming sea beach is an ideal place to get away from the madding crowd for a few days.
