Manginapudi is actually a beachside fishing village and the beach here is also called by the same name. This beach is located at a distance of about 11 kms from Machilipatnam. Some years ago, the village in which the beach is located was serving as a port. Generally, we see a type of soil in all beaches, which will be light brown, but in this beach it is black soil.
Magha pournami is a festival, during which pilgrims throng this beach to have a dip on the water and they consider it to be a holy dip on the Magha pournami festival. The popular dance form of Andhra Pradesh – Kuchipudi is taught in a dance school that is closely located near the beach. Every year, in the months of March or February, a festival called as Krishna Utsav is celebrated on the banks of Manginapudi Beach.
