Baruva is a village and a beach resort located near Sompeta in Srikakulam district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The Mahendra Tanaya River merges into the Bay of Bengal at this place.
Baruva was used as a seaport in the era of British colonial rule in India up to 1948. In July 1917 a ship carrying goods sank in the sea. To commemorate this incident a pillar was constructed. The harbor is closed, but the old lighthouse stood until 2000. A light house has been constructed next to the beach resort. Baruva's beach is one of the oldest in Andhra Pradesh.
