Kappad beach is kind of non-touristy beach but famous among the locals 15km away from kozhikode. There is beach where we had nice time having bath, kind of park with trees and seating places where you can relax, hill where we sat and watched sunset. Worth visiting if you don't like over crowded beach like kozhikode beach.

It was not crowded when I visited this beach. Hardly any people around. No facilities around this beach except ice-cream. Water wasn't clean. Everywhere it said it's danger to get into the beach. No lifeguards seen around

This place is good for spending an evening. I would stay stroll through the shores as the water appeared muddy. But our boys had fun picking up star fishes and citing live crabs and collecting shells. Overall an exciting place for kids to spend sometime.

The most beautiful rock-studded beach, very close to Calicut city, has always been the centre of attraction for the people of Calicut. Recently, it is gaining the attraction of tourists at national and international levels also. Even though Kappad was very famous as the place where Vasco da Gama landed in India for the first time, it was not so... More

The best beach in calicut but the authorities have no care here. Atleast they have to take care of the historic importance. You never see the Vasco de gama's visit's memory if u don't searched hard. Visit at day time and u can enjoy a nice beach but avoid visiting at night as there is no adequate light and all.
