View from the lighthouse was outstanding. When i reached there, it wasn't crowded at all. I climbed upto the top and seen the inner structure of the lighthouse very carefully. Adding with this, view of the kannur city from the lighthouse was breathtaking 😍

The Kannur Lighthouse is a functional lighthouse overlooking the Arabian Sea. The campus has a museum and is well maintained. You can climb up the stairs and get a panoramic view from the top

Contrary to what we were told, we could leave our shoes outside the door and climb all the way up the spiral stairs to the top of the neat and tidy Kannur lighthouse. Commissioned into service on 25 July 1976, it still functions. On a Sunday evening, we (6 friends), along with several others, gazed at the vastness of the Indian Ocean and the local ambience from the top of this well-kept lighthouse.

The Cannonore Lighthouse was constructed in 1975 and commissioned in 1976. An extremely well maintained lighthouse it forms part of the Cochin Lighthouse District. We visited the lighthouse on our recent trip to Kerala and were recommended to visit the place for the views. There is an entry fee to enter the lighthouse complex within which is the museum as also the lighthouse proper. The lighthouse uses 'D' type sealed beam lamps and lights up the skies every night. Its light can be seen from as far as Payyambalam Beach.
The view from the lighthouse is awesome and the right time to visit the place and climb to the top of the lighthouse tower is in the evenings just prior to sunset.

Surely one of the best attractions to visit in Kannur. Ideal time to visit would be during evenings when Sun heat has gone down. Not recommended for elderly people as there are a lot of steps to climb to reach the top of light house. Once on top, the experience is very unique & enjoyable.

Very well maintained by the authorities. It's allowed to climb to the top and enjoy spectacular views. The small museum is also very insightful. They also showed a shirt movie about lighthouses which I liked. Overall a great place.

Visiting LightHouse at Kannur brings excitement in terms of being historic property, science exhibition (a tiny exhibition room explaining the history, instruments used at lighthouse).
View from the top of the light house is breathtaking.

When we visited the light house was closed, hence it may be good to check before going. But the walk around the place, to see the light house from out is outstanding with the view which is akin to from a mountain top viewing the sea with the horizon. You could spend around an hour here enjoying the breeze and the views.
