Beaches of North Kerala

Beaches of North Kerala

While Kovalam, Varkala and Cherai beaches in South and Central Kerala have been on the tourist map for a very long time, the beaches of Northern Kerala have remained untapped, and is seldom visited even by those who live in South Kerala, let alone India. I took a trip to some of the beaches in Kannur district. They are all amazing, pristine and as awesome as the popular ones. In fact there is a beach where you can drive for 7 kilometers on the edge of the sea as the sand is so hard. I don’t think there is anything like that anywhere in India. Here are some snaps of my journey.

    During a rare visit to North Kerala last year I happened to visit some of the beaches in Kannur. They are totally unlike the rest of the beaches else where in Kerala. They are long, the sand is silvery and at some of them, one can go deeper than at Kovalam.
