Manginapudi BeachManginapudi, situated at about 10-km from Machilipatnam is noted for its fine beach in the district. Manginapudi deserves its importance partly from its scenic beauty and partly from being a historic port city.\r\nThis place is a health resort as well as a picnic spot. The beach possesses tremendous potential with a natural bay and comparatively shallow and safe waters. A beautifully laid park with a fountain and well-lit surroundings further enhance its reputation as a place for relaxation.\r\n
GhantasalaThe Hindu and Buddhist Sculptures, artistic excellence of Kalabhairva and Saraswathi lays a Gaijantic image to the once a part-hailing place Ghantasala. The museum with varied cultural collections compared with Mohenjodaro Art form and specially carved image of Lord Narsimha explains the glory of the Museum.
