To really enjoy this drive, you need a 4-wheel drive. My front wheel drive car was stuck in the sand and needed help from local fishermen to dig it out. Beautiful beach. Just be careful out there.

Very uncontrolled trafic in town area and the humid weather. The beach resorts are good and the food is also good. Nothing much to see except the beaches in different places

The drive from one end to another and u turn then drive back is excellent and smooth. People with phobia of driving and having controlling trouble of steering wheel could use this opportunity to learn and master the art . Added bonus is fresh catch to buy from fishermen directly.

I would consider this to be one of the best Beaches in Kannur. You can safely enjoy sea waves & also drive your car on the beach. Nothing much to buy for eating there, also would be difficult to reach there from Kanuur if you dont have your own car. Nevertheless, good place to spend some time.

It was high tide and the driving beach was too narrow for safe driving. Go during low tide. I here that when the hard beach is 50 meters wide is the best time to take a car on the beach.

This is undoubtedly one of the best beaches i have seen. The vast expanse is just unbelievable and it was extremely calm and serene the day we visited.,
