About 2 kilometers from the railway station of Kannur, this is the most popular beach in city. The location is such that you can easily go there and the cheerful atmosphere can bring a smile on your face instantly. The shoreline is long and thus aot for a lazy walk along it. There are a number of holiday resorts here as well so it is even easier to stay close to it. The stalls on the beach sell delicious South Indian snacks, tea and coffee. There are other ferry sellers too who sell straw hats and other stuffs such as beach balls. the restaurants lined along the outer part of the beach serve delicious local cuisine and are a must try.
Comes after the beaches, this is a natural harbour separated from the Kannur or St. Angelo's Fort. The Arakkal Palace is another place to visit. Both of these are the evidences of Portuguese conquests but are now completely deserted. The Arakkal Palace belonged to the Ali Raja Royal family which is till now the only native royal family pf Kerala. The palace is still owned by the royal family and is now turned into a museum which is open to the public for a nominal entry fee. Other than that this place is also good for picnics and as a watch point from where you can enjoy awesome views.
