    Its a pretty big beach and the best part is you can take your vehicle right next to the ocean.
    Sand is flat and hard enough to drive.
    BUT, do not park your vehicle right next to the Sea or take your vehicle in Sea. We saw a car getting stuck as they went pretty close to the waves where the sand was loose.

    Also, do not drive too fast else when you’ll apply brakes your car is gonna skid.
    With these precautions you can drive safely here.

    Pro-tip: towards the right hand side after crossing few stones there are two small beautiful and clean beaches. Do visit there and thank me later. :)

    Located in Parassinikadavu, almost 18 kms. from Kannur city, this park needs more rides to get value for money. The giant wheel was not operational when I visited last week. In-house restaurant, though slightly expensive for the food provided, is okay. The staff was helpful throughout. The rates should be brought down in line with the rides offered.

    One can combine a visit to Parassinikadavu Muthappan Temple, Snake Park and Vismaya in one go.

    Kavvayi is a group of small islands, near Payyannur in the Kannur district of Kerala state in India. It has been mentioned by name by significant global travelers, including Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta and Abdul Feda. The island was originally named "Kavvill Pattanam" and Chinese ships used to dock here to sell goods and take spices back home.

    The Kavvayi Backwater is the third largest backwaters in Kerala and the largest one in north Kerala. The beauty of the place can be best explored on Kayaks and country boat cruises,, preferably in early morning and late evenings.  Kannur district has 80 percent of the mangrove population in Kerala, and Kavvayi has some of the most picturesque ones. 

    Kavvayistories organises curated mangrove kayaking and camping trips, and we were lucky to discover them whilst we planned our trip to Kavvayi. Jithin was extremely helpful and put us novices at total ease. Given the limitation with the no of people who could travel on one kayak, he  helped us by taking care of our son. The mangroves are beautiful, and  very photogenic - just perfect for the instagram pics.  We so wish we could have also planned for the night camping that Kavvayistories organises. That's something we will definitely do the next time we are in Kannur. 

    Kayaking at Kavvayi is a must visit, and jithin and team are very highly recommended.
