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

This beach has historical value attached to it and hence cannot be missed out to visit, once anyone come to Kozhikode/Calicut.

I visited this beach after a few year. It has historical significance. There is a small monument commemorates the landing by Vasco da Gama, The beach is very calm with a stretch of rocks projecting into the sea. The beach is serene and pleasant. The waves are not violent.

2 hours drive from City, the approach road is a bit narrow and congested but once you are around the beach, it is worth while, has few restaurants around the beach, go to the far end of the beach, it is less crowded there and also don't miss the landmark where "Christopher Columbus" first landed in India. It is in... More

Fisher men catching sea fishes and prawns. Good sand in the beach for playing beach games, jogging and lying down. Carry a carpet, eatables, playing... More

We visited the Kappad beach during our 2-day stop in Calicut. We liked it very much due to its historical meaning and also to the fact that it was uncrowded, clean, very big, and you could freely take a bath or sunbath (despite false expectations about the local people). The village is so serene and tropical, people are very friendly... More
