Kannur in Winter (October - February)

Winter is the best time to visit the secluded pristine beaches of Kannur. The weather is perfect, not too hot and not too cold, with seldom or no rainfall. Temperatures are at a comfortable range between 14 degrees C to 25 degrees C. Winter is when major festivals like Adoor Gajamela and Pongal are beautifully celebrated in Kannur and other parts of Kerala as well. The days experience plenty of sunlight for sightseeing and other activities such as visiting the St. Angelo Fort, Arakkal Museum – heritage palace turned into a museum – and Mappila Bay for fishing. Carry light woollen clothes.

Kannur in Monsoon (June - August)

Beach towns are the least visited in monsoon, but Kannur is an exception. Unlike other regions where rainfall is consistent without a sign of sunshine, rains in Kerala have a pattern — few hours of downpour followed by a bright and welcoming sun and rain-soaked greenery. The temperatures range between 23 degrees C to 29 degrees C. Monsoon is for the nature enthusiasts who wouldn't mind rains interrupting their excursions. More so, the monsoon months are also when you will get discounts and offers everywhere, from hotels and flights to Ayurveda treatments. This is also the time you will witness fewer crowds, making your trip experience even more peaceful and memorable.

Kannur in Summer (March - May)

Kannur is an exotic location to travel to, but summer is not the ideal time. Temperatures start rising as February ends and go up to 36 degrees C in May. While you can spend your day at the beach to cool off, the hot and humid weather would make you want to spend your days indoors with the air conditioner blasting some breezy air. The evening is a soothing time to go out for a walk and explore the otherwise sleepy town. Carry your beachwear to hit the waters.
