  • Have you ever wanted to drive your car through the beach . You could do that but have to obey the laws be aware of the fellow drivers. Any way it is feels good to drive through the beach as well as also driving with constant fear of getting stuck in sand can also be a new experiences since it is the only drivable beach in the region and is a refreshing new experience to everyone as well. This beach is the longest Drive-In Beach in Asia 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 was my first experience to drive my car in the beach. At first I was scared to take my car as no one was driving it as we went early morning. But u took a risk and took my car into the beach. Sand was hard and it was allowing car to move smoothly. we had lots of fun driving here .
  • Must visit place in kannur. Best driving beach in India. But check weather will coming here. Because sometimes the rain will flood the area. But if the weather is good don't miss it. And be careful while driving.
