Nice list Khak. Will definitely help someone that is Andhra-virgin. You should also try to add the regular tourist attractions like golconda fort, birla mandir, araku, Borra Caves etc...

Andra Coast is rather long. Around where would you want it to be? Also, the ocean can be rough there, not necessarily suitable for a swim. And if the access is not protected (shielded) but villages are nearby, you may find some unwanted finds there in the form of excrements that the surf should wash away...

Probably you are best served with a resort place, but even there... Ocean beaches are public...

Guntapalli ancient site?

Anyone been to Guntapalli ancient buddhist site near Eluru and Rajahmundry? I just read an article about it in an old travel magazine, and it seems fantastic. Im attending a function in Chennai mid July and thought I could consider visiting this place since I will be that side anyway. But before I plan anything concrete I want to make sure that it is, not just seems fantastic as in the pictures. I did a Google search but there is not too much detailed information about it beyond what I have already read.

Is it a glorified version of the Kanheri Caves of Mumbai, but on a larger scale? Or something quite different? On the map I saw Koleru lake fairly nearby. Worth combining the two?

Would welcome any info from those who have been there. Also what is July like in this region? Thanks.

Hi all,

Just thought I'll add the less explored Vodarevu in the list of beaches as well. Its' less crowded than Suryalanka. The beach is clean, loads of palm trees and the fried fish is out of this world! The beach is about 30 kms from Bapatla, on the Hyderabad-Vijaywada route. Accommodation is sparse, but there's a bunch of cottages run by the APTDC and some private hotels, just in case you're planning to stay overnight.

On another note, I'd love some recommendations for quick trips around Hyderabad. Till now, I've been to these places:

Nagarjunasagar,
Guntur,
Bhongir Fort,
Shamirpet lake,
The Cathedral at Medak,
Warangal
The beach near Bapatla - Vodarevu.

Ideally, I'd love some recommendations within 200-250 kms of Hyderabad. Since we don't have a car of our own, the places should be accessible by the State Bus Transport Network. I'm not interested in the popular resorts (like Pragati, or Dhola ri Dhani). Something a little more offbeat would be awesome.

Thanks in advance.

-Rahul

Bidar

2 weeks back we visited Bidar and were surprised to see such beautiful monuments and structures there..........even more surprised why nobody mentions Bidar while thinking of weekend getaways from Hyderabad.........its 130 Km takes about 3-4 hrs, excellent drive and lots of things to see

Hindupur

Last year we visited Hindupur, just a quit small town.

But it is the ideal places to visit the temples and monuments in Penukonda and Lepakshi.
Another possibility is a trip to Puttaparthi.
