Kannur is a coastal city in the south Indian state of Kerala. It was once an ancient trading port. Enduring monuments such as 16th-century St. Angelo Fort, once occupied by European colonial forces, show the city’s significant role in the spice trade. Housed in a former palace, the Arakkal Museum highlights Kerala’s one Muslim royal family. The palm-fringed sands of Payyambalam Beach run along Kannur’s western shore.
Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach is a beach in the state of Kerala in southwestern India. It is located parallel to National Highway 66 between Thalassery and Kannur.It’s a very long flat stretch of sand making it ideal drive-in beach. Sand is firm and not as white as the other kannur Beaches.
Not ideal for swimming as I found other beaches in kannur better.
Like other beaches in kannur, there are no option for food apart from occasional ice cream trolley.
Beyond the iron sickle and hammer sculpture, the beach is less crowded.
Make sure you drive on firm sand else Tyre may get stuck in the sand.
You may get a chance to see a fisherman coming from the sea with his catch.
One can easily spend couple of hours in the beach
