Quiet, secluded, beautiful, this enchanting sandy beach borders Kannur – the land of ageless charms. This beautiful stretch of sand and surf is an ideal place to spend evenings, irrespective of seasons, because of its quiet and calm environment. 2 kms from Kannur, the Payyambalam beach is a popular picnic spot of the local people and holds much potential for development into a tourist resort.
Picturesque and incredibly beautiful, the beach is only walking distance from Fort St. Angelo. Flat laterite cliffs jut into the sea at one end. The beach is clean and long.
The Naura Cafeteria and well laid out gardens greet the visitor to Payyambalam. The beautiful beach garden, which, besides offering a picture-perfect view of the Arabian Sea, provides them with a plenty of natural comfort.
The garden and the massive landscaped sculpture of mother & child erected by noted sculptor Kanayi Kunhiraman makes it extremely captivating. The mortal remains of Swadeshabhimani Ramakrishna Pillai, A K Gopalan, K P Gopalan and Pamban Madhavan are laid to rest near this resort.
The rest of the land – Kannur – is equally fascinating to explore. Being the cradle of ageless folk arts like Theyyam and folk music, Kannur has always remained a land of ageless charms.
