More about Kappil Beach- Kasaragod
When you watch those movies showing magnificently secluded and clean beaches with perfect sand for a beach stroll, did you ever think that such a beach exists? Well, look no further: Kappil beach in Kasaragod is one of the relatively unexplored and secluded beaches in Kerala covering an area of about 25 acres. This clean and unpolluted beach offers a panoramic view of the beautiful Arabian Sea and is especially stunning during sunset with its golden sands and the coconut trees on its shore.
Secluded and peaceful beach
Located only 6 KM from the popular destination Bekal fort, the place is a wonderful backwater beach. Unlike most of the beaches in Kerala, this one is pretty much secluded. There are not many shops, no beach activities, and the beach is not too crowded either. The only specialty it offers is its magnificent beauty. Visitors can enjoy long, peaceful walks or simply lie down at the beach listening to the sound of the waves.
The sunset here is spectacular and that is be the perfect time to visit. Long coconut palm plantations and Casuarinas stretch along the border of the beach - creating a perfect line. They dance in the winds protecting the inner lands as well as put on a show for the visitors. Some parts of the beach are private. The premises that can be explored by visitors are covered in sea shells of various sizes and colours.
River mouth and the backwaters
On the left side of the beach is the starting point of the backwaters. It's here where the mouth of the Kappil river meets the Arabian Sea which is another sight to explore. There are stories of dolphin sightings as well – however that is extremely rare.
