Bhavani Island, Vijayawada

Came across this place through 'The Hindu'.













Bhavani Island is located at a distance of 4 km from Vijayawada. This is a river island measuring about 130 acres formed by the River Krishna. This place seems to have good boarding and lodging options being run by the Andhra Tourism department. There is nothing much to see here, but for the boat rides and the adventure zone and lazing out in the hammocks listening to the water swaying to the wind and watching an occasional boat pass by. The pictures of the place and the resort seems to be impressive and compelling. Perfect for a one day picnic or a lazy weekend outing for both couples and group. They also organize group trips for corporates.


Its proximity to the city is a big advantage. Vijayawada by itself is quite a beautiful city with the river Krishna flowing across and some mountains bordering them.

Some places of interest near Vijayawada are

* Prakasam Barrage
* Kondapalli Fort
* Victoria Museum
* Gandhi Statue (atop a mountain)


Access : Vijayawada is very well connected through road/rail/air. Since this place is so close to the city, ricks would be a better option to reach here.
Stay : Only the APTDC runs a resort here. The photos seem to be impressive, though there is no first hand review.
