Kappad beach finds special mention in history with the landing of Vasco Da Gama along with 170 men in three vessels on 27th of May 1498. He was warmly welcomed by the Zamorin of Malabar. This opened up the sea route for trade from Europe to India and Malabar soon became the gateway to the east.

It was the spices, the wealth and the beauty of Malabar that drew the Europeans to this land. A solitary pillar commemorates this historic event with the inscription - " Vasco da Gama landed here, Kappakadavu in the year 1498" .

This pleasant, calm beach is studded with rocks and caressed by friendly waves. The idyllic Kappad beach is not to be missed and is a fitting entry point to God's Own Country - Kerala.
