Hyderabad Weekend Getaway: Chirala Beach and Amravathi

This was one of my most exciting trips. When you search for nearest beach to Hyderabad, you would find lot of information on Suryalanka Beach. However, I was interested in exploring beaches that are not that famous. After bit of research, I found that, there is a beach 10 kms away from Chirala.
So, I planned the journey for the following route:
Hyderabad – Vijaywada – Guntur – Chirala – Guntur – Amravathi – Miryalaguda – Hyderabad.
Hyderabad to Vijaywada route was a nightmare.. it was so full of traffic and there were portions of road that were under-construction. We started from Hyderabad at about 9:00 AM in the morning. By the time we reached Vijaywada it was around 5:00 PM. After a bit of looking around Vijaywada, we started for Chirala at around 6:00 PM. Reached Chirala by 9:30 PM. Checked-in at a lodge at Chirala. The price per room varies from Rs.800 to Rs.1500 depending on AC/Non-AC.
Next day, we started early morning… at around 4:30 Pm towards Chirala Beach. The beach is around 10 KM away. Reached the beach before sun-rise at around 4:45 AM. Sunrise took place at around 6:00 AM. Stayed at the beach till 9:30 AM. The best part about this beach was… at around 7:00, there is a fish market on the beach. You would hundreds of different fishes being sold in wholesale. I had great time holding each of these fishes…
