Amazing drive in beach

The muzhappilangad beach was one of the first drive in beaches that I experienced. It was amazing to see people driving a foot deep into the sea . Also got to see some fishermen catching fishes in 1000s. They then explained to us how they catch the fish and what it takes. A small city where you can spend probably a weekend or can just pass through it on your way to other destinations of Kerala.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Same as rest of Kerala. Lot of small food joints serving Kerala meals and fish preparations.
For Sightseeing the only option is the beach and there are some famous temples.

Activities & things to do: Apart from the beach there is no other activities to do. If you are travelling in a big gang then you can use the beach to the fullest by playing some sport there. I played football on my visit and it was great fun.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: I went on a private mini-bus from Bangalore via Mysore - Madikeri. Roads are very bad after Bangalore. Explore the route though Wayanad/Bandipur/Kabini -Mysore. Could be better.
Keep enough beach shorts handy and travel light. Its quite hot during the day.

Thalassery Overview

Thalassery is a small but vibrant town on the coast of the Arabian Sea in Kannur district of Kerala. This heritage town, loaded with history, is one of the earliest English settlements in Kerala right from the time of the English East India Company.

The game of cricket is said to have been introduced here by the English as early in the 1790s.The English made the natives also participate in the game and cricket has remained in the heart of the people ever since.

St. John’s Anglican Church, behind Thalassery Fort, established by the British is an important historical site. The Thiruvangad Sri Ramaswamy temple, an ancient one, and Lord Jaganath temple, established by Sree Narayanan Guru, are two important places of worship for Hindus. Muzhupilangad, a drive-in beach, where one can drive a vehicle along the length of the beach touching the waves, is a major attraction.

The birth place and memorial of Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja, called Lion of Kerala, who had organised a revolt against the British, one of the earliest struggles for freedom, is at a distance of 30 km from Thalassery on the Thalassery – Coorg Road.

Herman Gundert, a German missionary who wrote the first Malayalam – English dictionary made Thalassery his home. The bungalow of Gundert is a place of interest for history lovers.

Mahe, one of the French colonies in India, which still parades the legacy left behind by the French, is at a distance of 15 km. Dharmadam Thuruth, a popular beach is located at a distance of 10 km. The British built the sea port and the Thalassery Pier for exporting variety of spices.

Thalassery has always been associated with 3 C’s, cricket, cakes and circus. Bakers from Thalassery have settled down in various parts of the country dishing out cakes and pastries. The large number of bakeries in the city bears testimony to Thalassery’s fondness for cakes.

A great many circus companies like the famous Bharath, Kamala and Gemini circus have its roots in Thalassery. Most of the circus owners and artists also belong to this place. Thalassery is well connected to all major towns by road and rail. Kozhikode is the nearest airport.
