Kappad Beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag certification by FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) Denmark, marking it as one of the world’s cleanest beaches. Notably, Kappad is the inaugural beach in the state to attain this esteemed recognition.
The certification is attributed to Kappad’s commitment to an eco-friendly approach, effective utilization of solar energy, implementation of efficient waste management practices, and dedicated efforts towards the conservation of local biodiversity.
Kappad Beach holds a significant place in the history of Kerala, with a pivotal moment occurring over 500 years ago in 1498. It was on these shores that Vasco-da-Gama and 170 men made their historic landing, marking a transformative chapter in the history of the entire state, particularly the Malabar Coast.
A trip to Kozhikode would be incomplete without exploring this legendary site. The spice route thrived along this beach, and a stroll through the area provides a glimpse into its historical importance. The rocks and small hills contribute to the beach’s allure, while nearby shacks offer a selection of delectable local delicacies and tea. Occasionally, migratory birds can be spotted, adding to the natural beauty of the surroundings. Kappad Beach stands as a truly majestic destination, forever etched in the annals of history.
