Kannur Trip: The Drive

Date: 8th April to 10th April

Travelers: Arun, Shilpi, Harsh, Muthusamy and Vijayalakshmi.

Total Distance: 650Kms

Route: Karamadai - Anaikatti - Mannarkad - Kozhikode - Muzhuppilangad

Road Condition: 2 lane road for the entire trip. Beware of rash driving.

Stay: Samudra Homes

The plan is to visit the Muzhuppilangad beach primarily and see few places around Kannur in Kerala. The specialty of the place is its the only drive-in beach in India and its the longest drive-in beach in Asia. This one fact was enough to get me excited and we planned for the trip. We started from home at 5:15 AM. Though it was only 260 Kms google maps was showing more than 7Hrs. We later realized why it was so. The entire trip was on two lane state and national highway. The route has many winding turns and one needs to cautious while driving. We saw ambulance flying multiple times in a day on this stretch on all 4 days of our stay. The drive till Kozhikode was nice as there was less traffic. The drive on the ghat section was a pleasant one.

Some pics from the trip.

Lovely curves to drive.

Greenery on both sides till we reached kozhikode.

Sunrise in one stretch.

We reached Samudra homes around lunch time. The homestay is just opposite to the beach.
