Kappad Beach Tours

Located 16 kms from the main town of Kozhikhode, the Kappad Beach is one of the most Charming Beaches of Kerala, also popular for its historic significance. After traveling around the coast of Africa by ship, Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese explorer landed on Kapaad Beach on 27th May 1498. He landed with 170 men in 3 vessels after undergoing many weeks of traveling. A solitary pillar commemorates the event with the inscription, "Vasco da Gama landed here, Kappakadavu, in the year 1498". This opened up sea route for trade between Europe and India and Malabar soon became the gateway of east.

The pleasant, calm beach, locally known as Kappakadavu, is studded with rocks. An intriguing feature of this beach is a sprawling rock that protrudes into the sea and has a temple on it. The temple is believed to be 800 years old. Kappad Beach is a small walk on the Korapuzha River, and even after 500 years, it remains untouched and unruffled, making it one of the most serene and peaceful Beaches in Kerala, South India. This little sea faring town is no less than a haven to the tourists visiting it. The best route to Kappad is along the backwaters. Un-spoilt and un-crowded, the scenic backwaters of Kozhikode offer a bewitching experience. A ride down the backwaters through the Korappuzha River brings you to the beach.
