Exploring Bekal Beach and St Mary's Islands
We climbed down the gaps in the rocks to reach Bekal beach....
Top Places To Visit 8 Spots
Located about 6 km away from the Bekal Fort, this is one of the cleanest and unpolluted beahes of the region. If you are the one who prefers seclusion more than the crowd, this should be a perfect beach for you over the rest of the beaches. This place is however becoming a favourite location for tourist with every passing day the Kodi Cliff nearby serves as a watchpoint for tourists. From here you can get awesome views of the Arabian Sea and the surroundings too. The views of the Pallikunnam Temple, which is about 2 km away can also be enjoyed from this cliff. Besides, you can also enhoy small picnics and lazy strolls along the beach.
This is a shallow beach just by the Bekal Fort and is the one which has been developed by the Tourism Department over here. This is now an exotic location for tourists and also the most visited place in Kasaragod. There are all sorts of facilities here including waste bins and toilets. There is a children's park for the little ones to enjoy and there are also shady areas and tree houses for you to rest. To make the beach even more beautiful two laterite statues of Theyyam have been built here by artists from Neelambur too. Apart from these facilities, the beach is very nicely lit up during the evenings to make it look beautiful as well as to let the tourists enjoy the place even during the hours after sunset.
Lovely morning at Bekal...We left for a morning ride to see the beautiful sea...I wish I could stay there forever... while traveling in north Kerala we also get a feel of Goa... except for the commercialisation and the booze 😀
