Kerala’s only drive-in beach, the Muzhappilangad beach which stretches across four kilometres of sand where one can drive down the entire length. The drive is ideal for sampling the famed Malabar cuisine from the many eateries in the immediate hinterland. Black rocks protect this long, clean beach from the currents of the deep, making its shallow waters a swimmer’s paradise.
Adventure sports like paragliding, parasailing and microlite flights are possible at the Muzhappilangad Beach in Thalassery. Other attractions include water sports, power boating or a simple catamaran ride.
Muzhappilangad beach (also Muzhuppilangad) enjoys the distinction of being the only drive-in-beach in Kerala.
Probably among the best drive-in-beaches of the world, lengthy stretch of 4 kilometres can be driven with ease without any fear of getting stuck in sand.
And the good news is, it is rightly legal to drive along the beach.
The 7 kms long beach attracts its fair share of visitors, mostly those who want to enjoy a fine ride through the sandy shore line in their car or on motor bike.
