Kappil Beach, Bekal Overview

Kappil beach is a dazzling beach located about 15 kilometres from Kasaragod, in God's own country, the South Indian State of Kerala. This bewitching beach is one of the few in India which still has an expansive area of golden sand and clear blue waters of the Arabian Sea explored by many travel enthusiasts but not exploited as yet. So, if you wish to go to a place which has everything you wanted from the sun, the sand, the clear sea lined by lush green coconut trees, this is the place to be. The picturesque location of the beach is sure to mesmerize you. Laze on the sand, enjoy a drink or read a book. Whatever you do, you are bound to make memories that will be unforgettable for the rest of your life.

Kappil Beach has a long sandy stretch which is apt for taking strolls across the coastline. It is just about 5 kilometres from the Bekal Fort. A portion of the beach serves as an exclusive beach for the guests at Taj Bekal Resort and Spa in Kerala. Tourists spend days basking in the sun as they relax in the sand. The sea usually has strong currents, so you may want to stay out of the waters. The enrapturing beach is a perfect location to watch sunsets and the changing shades of the evening sky. This is one of those places that hasn't been commercialised making it an ideal place for a picnic or to spend a day or two in quiet solitude.

Tips For Visiting Kappil Beach

1. The current could get rough, so it is better to avoid swimming in the sea.
2. This is not a sunbathing beach so avoid wearing swimming costumes. The local fishermen can be spotted roaming the beach which would make wearing a swimming costume uncomfortable and also disrespectful to their culture.

How To Reach Kappil Beach

Kappil Beach is accessible by road from Kasaragod which is just about 15 kilometres from the beach. One can hail a taxi from Kasargod to reach the beach area. Finding autorickshaws or other local transportation to go back to Kasaragod late in the evening might prove to be difficult. Booking a cab for the entire day is a better idea.
