About 25-km from Vishakhapatnam is Bheemunipatnam. The most important aspect of interest at the place is the beach, which is perhaps matchless for its beauty all along the east coast.
Bheemunipatnam beach is located at the confluence of the Gosthani River and the Bay of Bengal. It is a safe beach and one of the finest sea resorts of India and is well known as Bheemli. It is a usual resort for sea bathers as it is free from dangerous depths and sharks.
Nearer the sea and facing the flagstaff is a well-equipped round bungalow, which is said was originally the Vizianagaram Raja's resort. The view of the seascape from the verandah of the bungalow is captivating. This place was an important port in olden days. It has a lighthouse and it is a minor port though it is seldom used now. There is a Dutch cemetery called Hollanders Green, which overlooks the ocean.
A Touch Of Colonial Era
