Kannur International Airport

Ezhimala Beach and Hill

The sea curves around three sides of the seven peaked Ezhimala hills. Ezhimala beach is artistically set by nature at the foot steps of those hills.

Just adding spice to splendour, sea here is truly blue and the sands are of a different texture.

Hills appear painted green with dense bushes amidst scattered coconut palms.

Intrigue permeates the hill slopes where carved stone pillars are seen scattered around.It gets even intense at the bottom where a cave and an ancient burial chamber suddenly appear before eyes.

There is also an old mosque on top of the hill that attracts many visitors.

Hill top bushes are home to medicinal herbs that are hard to find elsewhere. Ezhimala hills are renowned for them.
