Moppila bay, the famous fishing harbour is situated near the St.Angelo's Fort in Kannur district. The beach is a natural and now a modernised fishing harbour built with assistance under the Indo Norwegian pact.
The remnants of the temple & fort are still seen in Moppila bay. The bay was famous during the Kolathiri's regime as a commercial harbour that linked Kolathunadu with Lakshadweep and foreign countries, in imports.
A sea wall projecting from the fort separates the rough sea and inland water. If the weather is favourable a ride in the sea will be a memorable experience.
