Kapad Beach - Calicut,India
Kapad Beach is at a distance of 19 Kms from Calicut. The drive is smooth and the traffic is thin. After a river crossing,we turn left off the highway and travel around 5 kms to reach the beach. This stretch comprised mainly of fishing hamlets and there is lush greenery all around ( thickly dotted with coconut palms) so representative of Kerala ! Truly called Gods Own Country ! Kapad beach near Calicut (India) is an important location in History - Vasco de Gama landed here in 1498 thinking he had discovered America. There is a small insignificant monument on the road side to record this historical landing. Kapad beach in itself is a beautiful beach.
