Beach front resorts to come up at Manginapudi

Chopper ride a major draw at Masula beach festival

Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation Chairman V. Jaya Rami Reddy on Saturday promised to develop beach front resorts at the Manginapudi beach.

Addressing the gathering at the Masula beach festival, Mr. Rami Reddy asked the public representatives and the district authorities to bring out an exclusive development plan to turn the safest beach into a tourism attraction with robust hospitality facilities.

The three-day beach festival began here, offering a range of entertainment options, including a helicopter ride.

“I would like to suggest a massive tourism plan to tap the beauty and tourism potential of the beach on the Masula coast,” added Mr. Rami Reddy.

Law Minister K. Ravindra explained the efforts to revive the Manginapudi beach, which had faced neglect in the past decade. “The beach wore a new look with the beautification drive that included improving road infrastructure and developing a seaside view point,” said Mr. Ravindra.

“The initiative to bring back the glory of Machilipatnam through tourism development is yielding good results. The port town and its coast will soon become a must-visit place near the State capital,” said Collector B. Lakshmikantam.

Sea of visitors

Thousands of visitors from across the district thronged the beach, where face yoga training by Manasa Gulati was among the attractions. In the evening show, renowned music director Mr. Koti and his team enthralled the gathering with film songs.

Visitors queued up to experience the aerial view of Machilipatnam and the backwaters in the eight-minute helicopter ride.
