At the Thunchan Parambu, we could see some great works of literary and how they have influence the culture and life of the local residents. From there, we moved on towards out next destination which was the state’s only drive in beach and named as the Muzhappilangad Beach situated in Kannur. My children were a bit bored at the last destination as they were too young to understand the importance of the literary works. But they were extremely excited when they saw that we were driving on a beach.
It is more than 4 km long and is believed to be ideal for different kinds of famous Malabar cuisines. We could see that there were a number of eateries located all along the beach. It is parallel to NH 66 and situated between Thalassery and Kannur. It boasts of being the longest drive in beach of the country because Goa may have a number of beautiful beaches but doesn’t have a drive-in one.
The beach is protected from the dangerous currents mainly by black rocks. Thus, the main attraction of the beach is its shallow waters which certainly make it a great option for swimmers. Both my children knew swimming and were ready to unleash themselves. But I had to stop them from doing so as we didn’t have so much time. Instead, we chose to travel across the entire beach and get indulged in some adventure activities.
The beach was full of many young people offering adventurous sports such as microlite flights, parasailing and paragliding. We could also see a number of water sports being played on the beaches and inside the shallow waters. Since we couldn’t get ourselves wet in the water, we decided to go for a basic catamaran ride and power boating.
We were extremely lucky that we could enjoy the beach festival which is celebrated every year in April. My children were extremely happy while watching he different kinds of activities being performed by young professionals. There was also a small island called Dharmadam which could be accessed during low tides. We could also spot a number of resorts and restaurants which served different kinds of itenaries.
