About 10 kms from Bapatla, the silent and once unfamiliar Suryalanka Beach or Bapatla Beach has now turned into a place of potential tourists. Suryalanka Beach with wide shore and flat beach is the only beach close to Hyderabad. The wide spread shining sea and the golden sand offers one of the best holiday destinations.
Suryalanka Beach has nothing much to offer except relaxing at the sea-side. The Tourism Department of Andhra Pradesh had established its Punnami Beach Resort with beautiful cottages from where you can have direct view of the beach. This is a nice place to chill out and have fun. If you are good at convincing the fishermen on the shore you can also get on to a boat ride in the sea, catch some fish and get it cooked in the restaurant for your meal. You don't have to worry about food as you get good food at the resort, though not a lavish one.
Some people come here for leisure, as you don't have anything to do (not even shopping) while some come here on auspicious days to have a dip into the sea. All in all Suryalanka Beach is a beautiful place to be.
