Hyderabad Weekend Getaway: Suryalanka Beach and Kotappa Konda

Finally, we decided to visit Suryalanka Beach. Got two cottages booked at Harita Beach Resort for Saturday night.
Along with Surya Lanka Beach, I also wanted to cover a place called “Kotappa Konda” as part of this trip. Therefore, I planned the following route.
Hyderabad – Miryalaguda – Narsaraopeta – Bapatla – Suryalanka Beach (night stay) – Kotappa Konda – Narsaraopeta – Miyalaguda – Hyderabad
The above route is slightly tricky. Below are the route maps for your reference.

We started at 8:00 AM in the morning from Hyderabad and reached Surya Lanka Beach at around 6:00 PM. We could have travelled at a faster speed but since it was family trip, I asked the driver not to push the acceleration peddle much. My didn’t have high expectation from the Harita Beach resort. I was expecting cottages with minimum facilities. But I was so wrong. The cottages have all the facilities that you would expect in a 2-3 star hotel. And the best part was… these cottages are right in front of the beach. Also, Harita Hotel has a good restaurant..
After a good night’s sleep, we hit the beach at 5:30 AM in the morning. Sun was just about to rise..

After breakfast, we started towards Kotappa Konda. This place is close to Narsaraopeta. Kotappa Konda has several temples on top of a hill.
