Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach, Kannur, Kerala, India

The beach is about 5 k.m. long and curves in a wide area providing a good view of Kannur beach on the north. To the South and about 200 metres away from the beach there is a beautiful island 

called the “Green Island” which adds to the allure of the beach. Such a conjunction of beach and island is rare

This is a beautiful drive-in beach of 4 kms but no proper discipline while driving or having fun by tourists/local or even poor maintenance by govt. seems to be actually hurting the ecology here. I saw these beautiful little birds near the shore who were enjoying the breeze too but many people were driving their vehicle towards them and even scaring them. One of them did listen to me but I saw many more doing so. Not sure what the charm they get out of this !!!
Also, sure the fact that people are more and more getting closer to the sea shore also going to impact ecology there.
Apart from these, I heard incidence of accidents and crime too as well as road rages. I spoke to few locals and it seems maintenance followed by restrictions on # vehicles allowed in a day needs to be there.
