  • Tides are good to play (was there on a full-moon day). Little crowded on weekends. Don't drive too much in the water, I saw some cars got into s/w problems (due to steering lock, brake lights)  more »

  • With the only drive-in beach across whole of Kerala, Muzhapillangad Beach is a treat for all. The expansive stretch of coast makes for a great and enjoyable drive. Family, friends, kids and people of all age groups can enjoy their time here. It is located a bit to the interior from the main road, yet the access to the beach is easy as the roads are well marked. Be mindful of the various activities and people as the beach is mostly crowded. Kindly drive responsibly and slowly.
  • This is supposed to be the longest drive in beach in Asia. It's quite a long stretch of beach with lots of 4 and 2 wheelers on it. Be careful while driving on the beach as there is no control or regulation on the vehicular movement. It is quite peaceful and you have many places to sit and watch the sunset or sunrise. You will always find good vendors with their mobile setups selling snacks, con drinks etc. There is a small shack/restaurant also. But don't expect to see shacks like in the beaches of Goa
  • This beach is the longest Drive-In Beach in India and is featured among the top 6 best beaches for driving in the world in BBC article for Autos. Muzhappilangad is the only Asian beach featured in the list. Even though Goa has many beautiful beaches, it does not have a Drive-in beach. It is considered as the longest drive-in beach in Asia. The beach festival is celebrated in the month of April and it is one of the important tourist attraction in the district of Kannur in Kerala. The youth also try many driving stunts in cars like drifting and wheeling in bikes as this is a paradise for driving along the shore.

  • Best place for the traveler. If you know to drive it will be a great experience ! Nice view! Evening is the better time to view. You can have long ride of 2.5km along the banks of beach. Not so good for surfing . Too much traffic to enter into the way. View around the beach is awesome. Best place to visit with family and friends . No entry fees.
