Muzhuppilangad Beach gathers its fame as the only drive-in beach in India as well as in Asia. Lying 8 km away from Thalassery and 16 km away from Kannur town, the beach is easily accessible by road. Located parallel to NH 17 that connects Thalassery and Kannur, this beach is frequented by thousands of people every year and is an ideal location for one day tours and family picnics.
Travellers can drive along the entire stretch of 5 km and enjoy the scenic beauty of sandy shores. The beach becomes crowded with youngsters and adventure seekers during the beach festival that falls in the month of April. Dharmadam Island, also known as Pacha Thuruthu, is situated about 200 m south of the beach.
Travellers can cover the shores of Muzhuppilangad Beach in cars and bikes. The coconut trees swaying in the wind and the rocks surrounding the ocean add to the beauty of the beach. The beach can be visited any time of the year, though monsoons should be preferably avoided.
