The best time to take a trip to this splendid place is in winter season i.e between October and March. The weather during this period is extremely pleasing and windy. There are major religious festivals like Visakha Utsav celebrated from October - December. There is no trace of humidity in the air enhancing the travelling experience even more. During summers it can get extremely torrid which might keep you from stepping out. Humidity and heat waves also accompany the region making it difficult to take a stroll or even go into the beach. Monsoon hits Vishakapatnam from july to september when the city receives heavy rainfall making it uncomfortable to travel around. Hence, summers and monsoon are not an ideal time to visit Visakhapatnam.
