Thalassery was once the center of military center of British.
Thalassery Fort, located at a distance of 22 km from Kannur
constructed in 1708 AD held special significance for the British.
In 1708 AD, when the British East India Company established
its settlement on the Malabar Coast, they built the Thalaserry
Fort, as a testimonial to their colonial imperialism.
The square fort, with its massive walls, secret tunnels to the
sea and intricately carved huge doors, is an imposing structure.
The fort was once the nucleus of Thalaserry's development.
Now this fort is a tourist attraction for visitors to Kannur
Muzhapilangad Beach is located at a distance of 8 km from Thalasseri.
Black rocks protect this long, clean beach from the currents
of the deep, making its shallow waters a swimmer's paradise.
The palm groves fringing the beach is a cool hideaway from the
tropical sun. Perhaps this is Kerala's only drive-in beach where
you can drive down the entire length of 4 km.
