A great beach to visit in the evening, but all history buffs be warned: you mustn't go there expecting to see anything at all related to Vasco Da Gama, the Portuguese explorer who discovered the sea route to India from Europe by landing at this very beach in 1498. Kappad Beach is around seventeen kilometres from Kozhikode city, from where... More

Kappad is undoubtedly the best beach at Kozhikode. It is situated at around 30 km from Kozhikode when you go towards Kannur. It is a very clean beach and there is ample parking space available. It also has sitting space for people to relax on the seashore if they do not wish to play in the sand. If you are... More

We reached here in the evening. We were a family of 9 people. The weather was awesome and perfect for a short holiday. The beach ambience was very good and enjoyable. The water was nice and cool. We would recommend this place for everyone. We would like to come back here again.

Kapad has the potentials of a great beach: wide, white sandy dunes and calm sea, not to mention the gentle breeze. But the silken sand is full of plastic, dirt and weeds. What a pity.

Usually a beach vacation means lying in shack for whole day sipping your favorite drink and swimming . If that is what you are looking for this is not the place. Extremely limited options for food and beverages The beach is rocky and steep, so swimming is not advised. It has only one govt controlled beer and wine parlor, as... More

Well organised beach near Kozhikode with parks and benches. Drive straight along the beach side road to the far end to reach a temple atop a rock...climb over it and you can have the entire view of the beach...nearby resort is for those who wish to stay....this shore is where vascodegama and his portughese sailors landed...and western invasion started...rest is...

This has to be the best beach Kozhikode can offer! The waters are clean, the sands are clean, just perfect. It's a bit away from the mainland and maybe that's why the place is not much crowded, even in the weekends. But that's the best part- long stretch of clean beach without the crowd :) This beach has to be... More
