Stop At: Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach, Edakkad, Kannur India

Muzhappilangad Beach is famous for being Kerala's only drive-in beach. This Asia's largest Drive in Beach is about 7km from Thalassery in Kannur, you have a 4 km stretch of sand that awaits you to simply drive along as you soak in the view of the beautiful Malabar Coast. Along the way, one gets to munch on delicacies from a number of shacks that offer authentic Malabar cuisine. It is often considered a swimmers paradise as the black rocks protect the beach from deep currents. This is a perfect way to relax and soak in this clean and well maintained beach. One can also partake in adventure sports like paragliding, parasailing and micro light flights along with water sports, power boating or a simple catamaran ride.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Payyambalam Beach, Nh - 17 2 Km from Railway Station, Kannur 670001 India

Just 2 km away from Kannur town, the conveniently located Payyambalam beach is a large stretch of golden sand frilled by coconut greenery. This favorite hangout for locals is the best known of all Kannur beaches. Entrance to the beach is a bit odd. A walking bridge over a small canal is the main access. Immediately after the bridge, on the right side is an area where monuments are erected on tiled floor. These monuments commemorate the lives of political leaders who belonged to Kannur.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Fort St. Angelos, 3 km from Kannur Centre, Kannur India

Triangular in shape, the St. Angelo Fort is also known as the Kannur Fort. This was built by the Portuguese Viceroy Don Francesco de Almada. Built in 1505, the Fort was captured by the Dutch in 1663 and later sold to the Ali Raja of the Arakkal dynasty. The Fort was taken over by the British in 1790 and turned it into its main army centre in the Malabar region. Now, it is under the Central Archaeology Department. From the Fort, we can see the Moppilla Bay, and hundred meters from the seashore, the picturesque Dharmadom Island in the Arabian Sea, a sight worth watching. The Dharmadom Island is only five acres in size. The bay which was once a fishing centre is, today, a modern fishing harbor built as per the Indo-Norway agreement.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Dharmadam Island, Kannur 670106 India

Dharmadam Island in Kannur, is a secluded getaway spot, beautifully green with coconut palms and wild bushes. No wonder locals call this tiny 5 acre islet green island. This isle, 100 meters from Dharmadam main land, is located between Kannur and Thalasseri. It is formed as a result of lateritic rock projection between two arms of Anjarakkandy River and the sea.During low tide the ocean recedes making it possible for visitors to walk to the island. Walking through less than knee deep water and reaching the Island is an exciting experience. Make sure to return before the tides get stronger. Alternatively, you can take a boat from south end of nearby Moidu Bridge located along Kannur - Thalasseri highway and reach Dharmadam Island.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mappila Bay, Kannur India

The natural harbour of Mappila Bay is a water inlet great for boat rides. One of the attractions in Kannur town, it is located in a touristy spot right next to Fort of St. Angelo (Kannur fort) and Arakkal Palace. Proximity to such monuments brings in more visitors. Although Mappila bay is a sightseeing spot in its own right, a lot need to be done to bring it at par with the best of local tourist spots. A high wall extends into the sea from the adjacent Kannur Fort. It separates rough sea and inland water, so that boats could arrive inward and anchor safely. This wall has worked quite well for the fishing harbor and the port of Mapila bay.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Arakkal Museum, Near St. Angelos Fort And Payyambalam Beach 3 Km From Kunnar, Kannur India

Kannur’s rich and vibrant landscape is host to the great Arakkal Kettu Museum, former residence of the only Muslim Royal Family in Kerala, the Arakkal Ali Rajas. Step inside this beautiful architectural marvel and be transported to a different era, with heirlooms and artefacts of their rein adorning the entire building.

The museum exhibits artefacts and heirlooms of the royal family which includes the family seal, the pathayam (the wooden box in which grain was stored), document box and so on.
