One of the prominent ports and fishing harbours of ancient times in Kerala, Beypore beach was once an important trade and maritime centre, lying just 10 km south of Kozhikode. The boat-building yard at this beach is famous for the construction of uru, a traditional Arabian trading vessel.Situated at the mouth of the Chaliyar river in Kozhikode district in Kerala, a unique feature of the Beypore beach is a bridge built nearly 2 kms into the sea, made up of huge stones piled together, making a pathway into the sea. Beypore is well connected, at a distance of just 11 kms from Calicut.
The Beypore beach in Kerala is an ideal place for relaxation and unwinding yourself. There are a plethora of activities that can be done on the beach itself while enjoying a holiday. Sunbathing on the beach and treating yourself to a bronze tan while taking a leisurely walk all around in the nearby villages and getting a peek into the traditional village culture of Kerala can be real relaxing and pure fun.
Due to its close proximity to Kozhikode, anyone lazing at the Beypore beach in Kerala can also go to the district for sight seeing. A fledgling wood industry thrived in Beypore ship building activity. Now, past its prime, the wood industry is just a shadow of its former self. Still huge logs can be found floating down the river and is reminiscent of its glorious past.
