Vadakara Sand Banks Beach


Vadakara Sand Banks Beach is where locals and tourists throng to view the confluence of the Kottakkal River and the Arabian Sea. This beach strip is famous in Kozhikode for its secluded and calm air that helps people relax. The beautiful sunsets here are a perfect way to usher in the end of the day. Vadakara nearby is famous for being the birth place of Thacholi Othenan, the legendary hero of the Vadakkanpattu (ballads of North Malabar). Many famous temples here are dedicated to him and the martial art form of Kalaripayattu has many exponents here. This sleepy hamlet has something for everyone and is a must visit place in Northern Kerala.
