There is no railway line in Yanam region. The nearest railway station is at Kakinada (Headquarters of East Godavari District) which is 26 kms. away on the East. It is an important trade centre and port town and there is a District road connecting it to Yanam. Yanam is also linked by another road on the west of Ramachandrapuram and Rajahmundry. A new bridge, forming part of NH 214, was constructed across river Gauthami connecting Yanam with Yedurlanka. This bridge, thrown open to the public, now serves as an important way of approach to Yanam.
Rajamahendravaram (Rajahmundry) is the only nearest airport for Yanam.
