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.

Which has a museum explaining the duties and history of Light house. In the evening there will be a musical fountain for enjoyment. Don't miss the view from the top of light house.

The Kannur lighthouse is on the cliff next to Payamabalam beach, by the entrance of KTDC resort. The light house is not that tall however gives a beautiful view of the cliff, sea and the beach. Kannur, then Cannanore, was an important sea port for trade from 15th century onwards. One needs to pay Rs.20 per person for the lighthouse entry, Rs.20 per camera and the place is open from 10 AM to 6 PM, 1 PM to 2 PM being lunch hours; closed for lunch.

Located close to Payyambalam Beach, Cannanore Lighthouse is the immediate neighbour of the Mascot Beach Resort. This charming and well-maintained lighthouse is a visual delight. The view of Kannur from atop the lighthouse is breathtaking. The lighthouse museum is a treasure trove of history, delightfully engaging inquisitive and learning mind. On display are some rare exhibits, a treat for history enthusiasts. Some of the exhibits at the Kannur lighthouse museum are the red ‘Light Ship’ that was anchored in the danger zones, an enormous optic used in the Lakshadweep Lighthouse, double-wick lamp belonging to the 19th century, a huge fog-bell used to warn ships and a radio beacon transmitter.
