“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey.”– Babs Hoffman.
Visited Sagara Beach, Elathur, Calicut(Kozhikode) along with my Family, in October 2014. One of my relative is staying near to this beach so thought to include Elathur beach while visiting their house.
Elathur is a part of Calicut corporation in Kozhikode district in the Indian state of Kerala. It is located about 11 kms north to Kozhikode city on the Kozhikode-Kannur National Highway 17 and is bounded by the Arabian Sea at the west and Korapuzha River (Elathur River) at the north.
The Elathur beach stretches from Puthiyanirathe to Korapuzha. Marine mussels are abundant in this part of the sea.
There are many home stays in this area.

Cleanliness is the main attraction of this beach and the sun set view is excellent.
Compared to Calicut or the Kappad beach, the rush here is relatively very very less.
In case if you are using a public transport, you can get down at the ‘Elathur Private bus stop’ (in Kannur road) and take an auto to reach the Sagara beach. The only challenge will be that you will have to walk back 1 Km or so (on your way back), to reach the Kannur road.
