Kappad Beach, Kozhikode

3.8
#1 of 39 in Things to do in Kozhikode
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.

    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.
