Konaseema is a scenic delta that is located in the East Godavari District of the State of the Andhra Pradesh.

The region is one of the most fertile places in the Coromandel Coast and many fields of Cashews, Mangoes and Paddy can be seen in the area. The area is prone to many cyclones due to its close proximity to the Bay of Bengal.

The main mode of transportation in the area is through the waterways and it is an idyllic way to see the place.
There are religious festivals during the Kartika Masamm and they are a must see for any travelers. Many small lamps are placed on the canals and they can be seen floating around the waterways in the pre dawn hours. The culture of the area resembles much of the other parts of the State.
