A glorious strip of sand ensconced between a pretty lake and a gentle sea, overlooking the mighty Ezhimala Hills. That is Chootad Beach for you, a rare geographical combination which looks more like a painting born out of an artist’s fantasy than your usual beach.
The beach which lies a few kilometers away from Pazhayangadi town in Kannur is yet to figure in the tourism radar and one can easily spend a few hours here in solitude.
This resplendent beach also boasts a long, gorgeous coastline backed by Casuarina trees. When faced with such an amazing scenic splendour, who wouldn’t want to get a bird’s eye view? The merry go round at the beach lets you do just that, get spectacular views of this ethereal beauty from all perspectives.
The beach isn’t just for the romantics. It is for the adventurous and those who just want to picnic around as well. The District Tourism Promotion Council here maintains a park in the beach. Be it capering about in the park, gliding through the calm waters of the lake in a pedal boat or just revving up the quad and riding through the sands, the beach offers a host of activities to indulge in.
For beach bums, there is nothing more fulfilling than sauntering through this pristine stretch watching the waves crash at the shore, taking a dip or just settling into the sands and staring at the magnificent vista struck up by nature.
