Ponnani is a beach town where bus is a cheapest mode of transportation. However, if you are a tourist, taxi is definitely more convenient for commuting from one place to another. Other than that, you will be doing a lot of walking and strolling along the beach or between the temples. Make sure you avoid travelling during monsoon season while March to May is a time when you can enjoy watching migratory birds flocking the town.
