Why Beypore beach is deserted?

Beypore beach stands as a symbol of Calicut’s trade history. It was also a tourist hot spot .And,has a prominent place among  Kerala Tourism’s major destinations.

However,the current situation at this beach is unpleasant for domestic as well as foreign tourists .

The beach is poorly maintained for the last few years.The spot is misused by anti-socials.

Night lamps installed at the time of beach beautification are in a dilapidated condition.

The hotel run by the District  Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) is closed for long time.

The tiles installed on the walk-way have been ruined at many places.

Many small shops on the beach have been closed due to lack of sale.

The only activity running here regularly is the collection of parking fees by the DTPC.

To add fuel to the situation,some anti-social elements and drug dealers misuse this place,say local residents.

 

Beypore was considered as one major destination thanks to its pristine beaches panoramic views and affordable travels.

Many local tourists with family used to come on this shore in the evenings after the modification of the beach two years back.

Now,the numbers have been come down hugely because it is darkness through out the walkways after sun set.

There is no security system.

Police patrolling has been almost stopped, as per the information received from the local community.

It is high time the beach be renovated says Sidhique.K , an ice cream shop owner on the beach.

“Here there are many potentials to develop as a top tourist spot because the shore has long walking space, rural environment, delicious foods in traditional style at easy access.” -Sidhique says.

Travellors come to visit Beypore port used to spend their leisure on the beach.

However, majority skip this locality, feeling uncomfortable, recently, say local people.

Gootheeswaram beach side tourist spot is just miles away.

Those who want to familiarize with Beypore can reach the location within one kilometer distance.

The centre for Kozhikode’s Beypore Uru making is also very near to this beach.
