Payyambalam beach is a large stretch of golden sand frilled by coconut greenery. This favorite hangout for locals is the best known of all Kannur beaches. The road to the bridge crosses a walking bridge over a small canal and is the main access. There are monuments commemorate the lives of political leaders who belonged to Kannur after the entrance.
Payyambalam Beach Features
Payyambalam beach is long, wide and quite even. Extending about 4 Kilometers. A cliff which forms a natural border on one side has the beach garden. The beach garden has interesting structures such as the statue of Mother and Child which is done by Kanai Kunhiraman, one of the leading sculptures in Kerala.
Payyambalam beach appeared in several South Indian feature films. The beach is kept clean and usually not so crowded. However, it can get busy during evenings and weekends. The rest of the land - Kannur - is equally fascinating to explore. Being the cradle of ageless folk arts like Theyyam and folk music, Kannur has always remained a land of ageless charms.
The beach is good for swimming and sunbathing. Water skiing, para sailing and boat rides are conducted by the Kerala Tourism Department during rainy season when the sea is rough.
