Evening was reserved for the only drive in beach of South, the Muzhappilangad Beach. As expected beach was crowded enough, we had a nice walk munching some mouthwatering savories and did a ride too, yay!! much waited one. Always wanted to do this as in movies and was happy for the accomplishment. An evening in beach and Dharmadam island was well spend.
The beach is pretty clean and secluded . After a lot of photo shoots and water fun we came back to our room, took shower had amazing meal (especially for Non vegetarians) with unending gossip in such cozy dining area. Later in evening we headed to Drive-in Beach -Muzhappilangad Beach. Yes, you got that right, you can ride your own vehicle drive along the shore . It's an experience that you'll cherish for life long. There are also small moving shops for eateries. Deep Ocean, Wide Horizon, Breathtaking sunset , Ice cream in hand , sandy legs and amazing company - what else you need? Life is Sorted!
We scooted from the St.Angelo fort to Muzhuppilangadi Beachat 5.00 p.m.All I heard about Muzhippilangadi beach was the drive-in beach in Kerala. It was my first experience at a drive-in beach, so I had no idea about it. I was speechless when I saw the tremendous beach. We rode the bike through the beach, splashed water and enjoyed the view of the deep blue sea. The beach was crowded. We stopped the bike and listening with both an open heart and ear, heard the waves crashing against a nearby rock. I was walking on the beach and placed my feet in the sand. It was a heartwarming experience. I hadn't run for the water, because waves touched and washed my feet. This beach was the highlight of my trip. I have no words to express my delightful experience.
We rested after having lunch and set out for the drive-in beach at around 5pm. The beach has a long shore of about 4kms with tightly packed sand and vehicles can easily ply on this stretch. At a few places on the shore, the width is about 500 meters. There is a sign board telling visitors not to drive in sea for two reasons - one for the safety of people and another so as to avoid corrosion of vehicle parts which comes in contact with the salt water. As is common in India, people chose to ignore the warning and went ahead with their vehicles in the sea. The beach is very clean and well maintained. Cool breeze blowing into us and the fact that we were driving a few meters off the beach got us very excited. This was a first time experience and a wonderful memory.
Muzhappilangad is a fascinating place just 100km from Kasaragod. It is Asia’s longest drive-on beach, and offers a rare experience of driving on sand for 4km. The experience shouldn't be missed out on by those who love long scenic beach drives.
