It is about 3 km from Kannur town. It is a fish landing centre facilitating mechanised and motorised boats. Facility for auction is also available. It is very close to Kannur Fort. Those who have seen fishing harbours there is nothing special to see.

The historic Mappila Bay can be viewed from St Angelo's Fort, or accessed by road. Today, this area is a fishing harbour. At sunset, the views of boats docked at the Bay can be quite pretty.

We were so fortunate to arrive at Mappila Bay just as the fishing boats were arriving with their mid-day catches. It was quite an exciting time to watch the fishermen trade their wares on the beach; they even had their weighing scales with them.
