Extensive coastline, extremely scenic landscape, stunning beaches and backwaters, mesmerising hill stations, captivating art forms and festivals... Kasaragod has all the ingredients to become a compelling tourist destination. Due to multiple reasons, including lack of adequate infrastructure facilities, the tourism potential of Kerala's northern most district is barely exploited. In fact, each and every factor highlighted as the reason for the poor rate of development in travel and tourism sector themselves can very well be an opportunity for potential investors.

There are immense possibilities for investing in beach resorts, watersports, amusement parks, water sport complexes, backwater cruises, sightseeing/experiential tours, hill resorts, convention centres, etc. It's only about having a committed and sustained approach. The district ensures scope for greater developments owing to its position, which is evident through not just the high tourism value the district validates, but also its proximity to the two international airports of Mangalore and Kannur.
