Visakhapatnam: If the proposed Visakhapatnam-Bhmili Beach Corridor beautification project was grounded as announced by Union Tourism Minister K Chiranjivi, the city could be the most favoured tourist destination in South India. The project starts from Ramakrishna Beach and ends at Bhmili covering a distance of 24 kilomters. The four lane road passes through exotic spots like Tenneti Park, Kailasagiri, Sagarnagar, Rushikonda, Thotlakonda, Mangamaripeta, Erramatti Dibbalu upto the centuries old Dutch cemetery in Bhimili. The VUDA has completed the four lane road upto Mangamaripeta and the remaining road would be completed by Roads and Buildings. Rmakrishna Beach, in its present form, rated to be the most visited spot in the city. As it is closely located to all the star hotels and posh dwellings, many locals even visit the spot at least once a day. Kali Temple and some fast food joints make the place most lovable in the city. The next beautiful spot is said to be Tenneti Park, which carved out of the Kailasagiri and presents a picturesque view of the beach. Kailasagiri Hill itself perhaps draws the maximum tourists after Borra Caves. With the completion of Telugu museum and other projects other than what is being proposed by the tourism ministry, the Hill could become a major attraction. Erramatti Dibbalu, the unique red ravines located close to the sea is proposed for a desert safari which has been pending since long time. The present proposal could bring in many more attractions to the ravines. Mangamaripeta beach, the only safe beach, has been proposed for water sports. An Australian surfing team visited the spot recently and suggested that it could be one of the best places for surfing and sailing. The sailing and other water sports have already launched at Rushikonda but without proper infrastructure. ``If the project is completed, it can bring a host of activities on the beach road and could attract foreign tourists who are looking for lonely beaches for sun tanning,'' said M Srinivasa Rao, a tour operator.
