An Expanse of Sandy Shores and Waterways


Bekal is a charming coastal town in the northern district of Kasaragod. Renowned for its pristine beaches, Bekal Fort, and backwaters, Bekal offers an enchanting blend of history and natural beauty. You can see how golden sands meet the azure waters at Bekal Beach and Kappil Beach, promising unforgettable experiences for every traveller.

The Bekal Fort is an age-old bastion, steeped in the annals of time, standing resolute against the backdrop of the majestic Arabian Sea, bearing silent witness to the ebb and flow of dynasties past. Dating back to the 17th century, Bekal Fort is a testament to the architectural ingenuity and military prowess of Kerala, its formidable laterite walls and towering bastions reflecting a harmonious fusion of strength and elegance.

You can marvel at the fort's distinctive keyhole-shaped layout, adorned with imposing ramparts, strategic observation posts, and tranquil moats, all contributing to its status as one of India's largest and most impeccably preserved forts. Within the fort's storied confines lies the ancient Hanuman temple, a sanctuary of spiritual solace and profound reverence, adding yet another layer of mystique to this timeless testament to Kerala's rich heritage.

The Bekal Beach, situated near the fort, has a charming pathway, allowing tourists to soak in the stunning vistas of the coastline. 

The Kappil Beach is known for its tranquillity and pristine beauty. It is one of the state's finest and purest beaches, inviting families seeking a haven for relaxation. A leisurely stroll along the golden shores offers a blissful retreat amidst Nature's splendour, though caution must be exercised due to the occasional strong currents of the sea.

Adding to Bekal's allure is the enchanting Valiyaparamba Backwaters, the third largest in Kerala, a mere stone's throw from the Bekal Fort. Adorned with a myriad of islands and serving as a prominent fishing hub in the state, these backwaters promise a tranquil escape. Glide along the serene waters on a boat, enveloped by the lush coconut-fringed shores, and discover the secluded beauty of Valiyaparamba Island situated on the backwaters.
