Come to Kannur ! Kannur beckons you!

Payyambalam is the beach of Kannur town. It is long and clean. Flat lateric cliffs jut into the sea at one end. Picturesque and incredibly beautiful. The Naura Cafeteria and well laid out gardens greet the visitor to Payyambalam. The beach is only walking distance from Fort St. Angelo.

Meenkunnu - Meenkunnu at Azhikode is just few Kilometers from the town. Hitherto unexplored the beach is a tourist's paradise with golden sand and surf.

Fort St. Angelo-

Etched against the blue skyline, the imposing walls of the Fort St. Angelo remain as the monument to the Portuguese
adventure on the Malabar coast. Today Fort St. Angelo is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India(ASI). The barracks,the magazine, and its cannons are still intact and continue to enthrall visitors from far flung places.

Muzhappilangad Beach

Muzhappilangad is 15 kms.south of Kannur and only 8kms from Tellicherry. A long clean beach, its enchanting ambience invites you to swim,sunbathe,or just lounge around. Black rocks protect Muzhappilangad from the currents of the deep,making its shallow water a swimmer's paradise.

From Muzhappilangad you can see the Dharmadam island(Pacha Thuruth) (Green Island)-- just across theAnjarakkandy river, a remarkable conjunction of beach and island.

Thalassery - Thalassery or Tellicherry is a tourists delight. A many-faceted town, steeped in history. It is like Rome, built on seven hills.The East India Company built a fort at Tellichery in 1708. It still remains, the sentinel to three hundred years of turbulent history.Relics of an age, long gone by surround the Fort and continue to fascinate visitors old and young alike

Though abandoned the old English church has not lost its beauty. Stained glass windows and mildewed grave stones retain a hauntingcharm. The HolyRosary church is the oldest catholic church in the district.

The Odathil Palli is two hundred years old. Curiously Odathil is but a modification for the Portuguese word of garden.

Thalassery offers breath taking vistas of the sea.
