Kappad Beach, Kozhikode

3.8
#1 of 11 in Sightseeing in Kozhikode
Beach Historic Site
The historic spot where Vasco da Gama landed in Kerala, Kappad Beach remains a clean rock-studded stretch of red sand where you can dip your feet in the blue water or watch fishermen draw their long nets. Serene and tranquil compared to other area beaches, this attraction features a modest obelisk marking the historic landing site and an 800-year-old temple, adding a bit culture to an otherwise ordinary sun-and-sand experience.

  • If you have seen beaches in Goa, Diu, Konkan, Kappad beach is just about OK. No good eating places near the beach, no water sports or boating. We saw a few migratory birds. The sea is quite muddy. Ove...  more »

  • Awesome place to go for an evening. Family and couples can go safely. Mostly clean, security guard is there. Good view and resting places. Walking in the sands is really refreshing. Kids will fall love with the place.
  • Nice place. Nice beach side. Small rock hills. Clear water. Clean atmosphere. Different nice looking views everywhere..There are 3 adjacent beach sides here. The last one near to the temple is awesome. Other 2 places are good to sit and enjoy with family and friends.
  • Beautiful beach with great view points.. Takes around 20- 30 min from the main city ksrtc bus stand and you need an auto to reach the area which is around 1km away from main highway..
  • A fine beach with a little history. Less crowd and a fine place to spend time.
  • Nice beautiful setup of kerala beach. With proper hanging out place
