Dolphin's Nose is a huge rocky headland, around 174 metres in height. The rock gets its name because of its resemblance to a dolphin's nose which is located 358 metres above sea level. This Vizag tourist place is popular with visitors because of the natural rock that projects majestically from the Bay of Bengal. On top of rock formation is a huge lighthouse, which is renowned for its powerful beam. This is the oldest lighthouse in the city and offers stunning panoramic views of the Bay and the city. An essential attraction in any Vishakhapatnam sightseeing tours!

Dolphins Nose Reviews & Ratings
A must visit place in Vizag with a most breathtaking view of the coastline. Very breezy too, you might get blown away. One can enjoy the view of the entire city, harbour, beach, mountains, greenery from the top of the lighthouse. One can watch a huge tanker making its way to the harbour from the top.
Nice place. The view from hill and from lighthouse is amazing. . The deck of lighthouse is very small and scary due to its side grill. The gap between two rods is very big. Like small kids may fall down. So take care file you take your kid on the top. . There are two ways to reach there. The other e is specially for army persons, as the whole area is occupied by them. Other one is civilian. . Overall good place to visit. You can spend 2 hours here
The place is offers a great amazing view of the Vizag city .It is a must see spot. The location and ambience is worth.The dolphin nose is a sight to never forget especially for someone who loves ships and the seas. This view offers you the beauty of the sea and the busy Marine Traffic.
Few important things to consider before visiting Dolphin's nose. Timing: it is open only for 2 hours a day from 3-5pm. Route: Google is misleading. If you plan to drive, Google maps will show directions via military area where civilians are not allowed to take that route. There is an alternate route via police station. View: The view is spectacular from the top of the light house but the stair case is very narrow with the last set of stairs by a ladder. Not advisable for elderly. For all the others, the view from below the light house is equally spectacular. Footwear: Shoes and sandals are not allowed to get into the light house.
The place has the opening hours 15:00-17:00...very nice place cool breeze...people will like to sit n relax admire the view...in light house it was very rush due time limit. The view was mesmerizing... In the light house people will have to climb about 50 stairs ...difficult for the old people
