Overbury's Folly is a sea side park with a watch tower and is a great place to view the sunset. It is located less than a kilometer from Thalassery town, a commercial town on the Malabar Coast in the Kannur district, state of Kerala, India. Its named after its builder, E. N. Overbury, who served as a local judge at Thalassery in the 1870s.In 1879, Overbury wanted to construct a picnic spot at the cliff. He couldn't complete it, but the spot later earned the name "Overbury's Folly". The folly commands sweeping views of the Arabian Sea.Today, Overbury's Folly has been renovated and redecorated as a tourist attraction. It is frequented by local people in the evenings as a place to relax. A seaside open-air coffee shop has also been opened on the folly.
