How to reach Hope Island?

Hope Island is a small island of about 1000 hectares, 7 km off the Kakinada coast, which in turn is one of the most beautiful tourist places in Andhra Pradesh. It started its existence as a sand pit formed in the 18th century. The continuous flow of silt from Godavari river's distributaries and the interaction of the basin with the sea has resulted in the formation of Hope Island. It takes about 45 minutes in a motorized boat to reach Hope Island from Kakinada port, although the boats are infrequent.

If you are visiting Hope Island, you should also try out the beach on Uppada Road - located about 5 km from Kakinada town and is connected via bus - pretty popular on evenings, Sundays and holidays. The beach and shore waters are generally clean, there is a beach park, the shore is wide and the slope is gradual.

Hope Island is about 7 km from the main town on Kakinada. You can take a bus or taxi from  the town to the shores, from where you will be able to reach Hope Island by boat.

There is very little information available about the Hope Island online, why don't you try asking the staff of your hotel for some helpful local insights about reaching the place?
