Reasons to Charter a Yacht in Andhra Pradesh

Adventure Treks

Where the green hills roll down to meet the blazing blue Bay of Bengal, Andhra Pradesh is bursting at the seams with intimate adventures. The Belum Caves are a must. The longest cave in the Indian subcontinent, you can delve into a dreamy world where cold waters rush and the walls are carved with intricate stalagmites. The Talakona Waterfalls are another epic gift from nature, thundering at a staggering height of 270ft and surrounded by rising valley walls.

Temples and Forts

Lepakshi tops the list of must-see temples that mark the landscape of Andhra Pradesh. The ancient temples carved during the Vijayanagara Empire are certainly a sight to behold with their ornate columns, rosy rocks, and unique boulder carvings. Over in Visakhapatnam and you can also see another architectural wonder as you admire the golden grace of the Simhachalam temple. Head to Tirupati to see one of the world’s most visited temples. Andhra Pradesh is a haven for history lovers.

Fabled History

The lands of Lord Vishnu, the home of 16th century dynasties, and with shores still steeped in the history of British invaders, there’s so much mythology and history to be found within the hills and coastline of Andhra Pradesh. Machilipatnam invites you to explore the beaches and colonial past, visit an Ashram at Puttaparthy, and catch local traditions at Anantapura.

Where to Visit in Andhra Pradesh

Visakhapatnam

The sprawling coastal city may be the industrial hub of Andhra Pradesh but this also means its one of the strongest regional contenders for having solid infrastructure and a clean coastline. There are temples to admire, navy museums and submarines, spiced seafood delicacies to nibble, and a good beach for strolling.

Tirupati

Home of legendary temples, sprawling shades of jewel green, and said to be the celestial home of Lord Vishnu, the seven peaks of the Tirumala Hills are well worth ducking inland for. This is one of the most important pilgrimages in the world and the temple of Tirumala can see up to a hundred thousand visitors a day. Tirupati is also home to an 11th century fort and glorious National Park where you can catch sight of lions and other wild animals.

Nellore

A hub of tourist spots captured under one banner, Nellore sits on the flowing banks of the River Penna. As one of the major exporters for shrimp and sugar cane, charter guests can taste some of the sweetest saltwater treats in Nellore. There’s also temples, serene lake shores, Mypadu Beach, and the Nelapattu Bird Sanctuary, a breeding ground for spot billed pelicans.

When to Charter a Yacht in Andhra Pradesh

December to the middle of March may make the best time to sail and explore the shores of Andhra Pradesh. The summer months can be blistering hot and then between the months of September and November those southern monsoons stir up the coast, creating potential cyclones and drenching everything in their path.
