Meenkunnu Beach is a beach lover’s paradise, devoid of the usual maddening tourist crowds. It is situated at a distance of 12 kilometers from Kannur. In local language, Meenkunnu means “hill of fish”. The palm fringed beach is perfect for fishing, swimming or surfing. There is a cliff on the beach which gives a perfect view of the scenery below. The golden sand being washed by waves is a beautiful sight.
