Payyambalam Beach, Kannur
Situated about 4 kms from Kannur Railway station, Payyambalam beach is a local favourite. Every evening this beach is dotted with all kinds of people: kids playing under the watchful eyes of their parents, evening-walkers, day-dreaming strollers, relaxed local residents, soaking wet tourists, adventurous dumb-wits challenging the waves, et al.
Not many brownie points for this beach. Being in the heart of the city, its a "little" crowded, and waters muddy and salty as hell. But must watch the sunset here though. Nothing can go wrong with beaches and sunsets.
Getting-there: Auto rickshaw from anywhere in the city.
Pros: Right in the heart of the city. Good place to relax.
Cons: May be a bit crowded. Too many tall buildings facing the beach, spoils the aesthetics of the place.
My Rating: 5/10
