Fast Facts
State: Kerala
Famous for/as: Beaches
Kappad is a historic beach town that is located along the Konkan coast, near the city of Calicut. This is the very beach where Portuguese traveler Vasco Da Gama landed when he reached India. There is a small monument made from stone that is located near this point and the inscription reads that Vasco Da Gama landed here in the year 1498.

The beach is the main attraction in the town and it is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the state. The beach is clean and attracts many locals, especially in the evenings. A few foreign travelers and people from other parts of India can also be seen relaxing by its pristine shore line.

There are many stretches of beaches that are deserted during the day and are among the cleanest in the coastal part of Kerala. There is a stretch of beach called the Kappakadavu which is dotted with many rocks and the sand is rich yellow in color.

Another attraction for travelers are the many fishing villages that are located along the coast, its recommended that on your visit here try the local cuisine at the little sea side hamlets. Fresh sea food is one of the specialties of the place.

While here a visit to the 800 year old temple located along the beach is apt to take in a slice of history & divinity.
