Payyambalam Beach - A special one

One of the best beaches I have ever been to. I went there on a lazy morning and the first sight was awesome. Less crowded with cool misty air and the first thing one will notice is the cleanliness of the beach. There is a small park meant for children nearby with Rs. 5 entrance fee which provides a lot of rides for small children. There is a cliff nearby from where you can have a gorgeous view of the sea. The beach is just 1. 5 km from Kannur railway station. In a nutshell a must visit place if you are visiting Kannur.

A popular Beach

This beach is about 2 Kms from Kannur city centre. There is a children's park at the entrance to the beach and entry fee is charged to enter the beach. There is also a graveyard or burial ground where many renowned leaders are laid to rest. The park area and the beach is littered with plastic cups, wrappers of biscuit and chips packets etc. I hope the Kerala Tourism department will take some action to keep the area clean from garbage. I was told later that if we enter from little further away the beach is clean and neat. I hope my fellow travellers will kindly note this.

Good beach for a short dip

If you decide to go few meters into the sea, the water is good. But staying on the end is not that great as sea water gets mixed with the sand and you end up in clearing the dirt with every wave. I decided to venture in and enjoyed the half an hour play in water with my kids. To come to the beach you have to pay 10 Rs and cross a small theme park which not maintained well and not in good condition. There was ample parking in the morning but as per the driver evenings are really crowded here. If you are in Kannur, this beach is a good place to visit and it is very close to the Railway station as well as the town.

Beach for jogging

Beach is just 2kms away from the Kannur town, sandy beautiful beach some what clean and calm. Beach seems to be shallow and people seen swimming. Lengthy beach so one can walk for hours enjoying the sea.

Good place to relax

If you like to do relaxation of your mind it is the best place. Just take the beach walk in the morning, you will feel too much relax in it. Enjoy your trip.

There isn't anything attractive

This place doesn't offer you any special attractions and I think there are many other good locations around Kannur which is far more better than this to hangout with both family and friends.

Nice one for families and kids

The Payyambalam Beach is a nice one for families and kids will have a nice time to spend in the garden adjacent to the beach. The sea is comparatively calm and swimming is also another enjoyment we found here. A statue of a mother and child made by the renowned artist "Kanayi Kunhiraman" in the garden is really great.
