Located about 10 km south of Kozhikode town, Beypore Beach is an epitome of peace and tranquility wrapped in the harmony of cool waves and bright sun. Famous as one of the prominent ports and fishing harbors, this beach was once an important trade and maritime center during the days of the early Arab and Chinese travelers and later European companies. After being recognized as a port and trade center, Beypore slowly began to expand as a center for shipbuilding, which was in great demand by merchants traveling from West Asia. The boat-building yard at Beypore is famous for its traditional construction of the Uru (the Arabian trading vessel). With a 1500 years old tradition of shipbuilding, workers at Beypore have long displayed a first rate craftsmanship and as such, a visit to this isolated yet historic place is a must, especially if you want to catch a close glimpse of the deftness that traditional shipbuilders, known as Khalasis, here possess for fixing different parts of the ship to perfection.
Merely 1 km away from the shipbuilding yard, lays the fishing harbor, which was once an important trade and maritime centre. Moving ahead, 7 km away from Beypore is another tourist attraction, the Kadalundi Bird Sanctuary, spread around a group of scenic islands, hosting an attractive blend of local as well as migratory birds that flock here in huge numbers during the months of February-March. The place is an absolute birdwatchers' paradise. Another unique feature that makes the experience at this beach a memorable one is a 2 km long bridge, made up of simple huge stones stacked together. Those looking for some peaceful time to enjoy the nature will love this out-of-the-way and beautiful beach at Beypore. Laze around in the luminous sunshine, indulge in some thrilling water sports, or pamper yourself to a soothing Ayurveda massage, the options are plenty. The nearest railway station is about 10 km from Kozhikode town while the closest airdrome is Kozhikode International Airport, about 23 km at Karipur.
The Beypore beach is located in the Kozhikode town in Kerala.
