“One of the best kept secrets of Kerala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

Very little about the north kerala is known to the world, and everyone seems to visit more of the backwaters. Well, thats perfectly understandable knowing that the number of things to see and do in this part of Kerala might be limited, but in that list there is one item that is definitely a must visit during any trip to Kerala.

This drive in beach is one unique place where the sand is so thick and strong that it can take the full weight of the car even on the wet portions of the beach. The beach itself is about 2-3 kms long that gives a great sight. Driving on this beach is a fantastic experience and makes it the most interesting place in this part of Kerala.

When we went there it was drizzling a bit, adding to the already beautiful weather then. You would find a lot of locals trying to learn car driving there :). Drive to the end of the beach and there is a small section of backwaters, the place is really nice to hang around. This beach seems to be well maintained, they have deployed benches for travellers to sit and relax. Overall, a fantastic and unique experience.

“Wow..Never experienced this earlier”

Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach is located parallel to NH17 between Kannur and Thalassery. Co-ordinates at http://wikimapia.org/100698/Muzhappilangad-Drive-In-Beach-Thalassery-670662-%E0%B4%A4%E0%B4%B2%E0%B4%B6%E0%B5%8D%E0%B4%B6%E0%B5%87%E0%B4%B0%E0%B4%BF
This is supposedly the only drive-in beach of its kind in Asia.

The sand along the beach is firm enough to be driven on. Had never driven a car that way earlier. Its possible to take the car/bike into the water and splash it all around, but only if you want to risk taking it into the salt water.

“Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2010

This is the only drive in beach i have visited in my life.And i am damn sure there is no other drive in beach in south india.I reeached this beach around 2 pm and this was the right time to visit in a weekend as the place gets crowded fy around 4 pm.i was in my swift car with 3 others and entered the beach in my car.though i have read in many blogs that its a drive in beach i still had the feaar to take my car to the beach.but then with full confidence i took the car to the beach and when i gained confidence i even stared driving the car in water.It was real fun because we had our windows down and water started splashing in and everyone getting wet.Then i started performing stunts in the beach with my car and finally turned back with full satisfaction
