Thottada Beach[edit]

Thottada Beach is a beautiful beach in Kannur district of Kerala, south India. It is situated at Thottada just about 2.5 km from the NH 17 connecting Kannur town and Thalassery and 7 km from Kannur town. The virgin beach 800 meter long is ideal for sun bathing. Tourists could stay at the beach house or guest house near the beach. The Thottada river (a small one) flows into one end of the beach. There is also a dam/bund built across the river 3 decades ago to keep the fresh water from salt water. Away from the sea the river spreads to form swamps which makes a great habitat for various birds and fishes.


Kuruva is a small village in the Kannur District of Kerala, South India. It is located between Kannur City and Thottada.

Kuruva was once known for its beedi manufacturing, but this industry no longer exists in the village. The Sree Narayana Guru Smaraka Vayanasala were witnessed for many incidents[clarification needed] during the Indian independence movement. Many of the local meetings were held here. There were many agricultural activities in the village. But now all the fields have become residential areas.
