Kadalundi Kadavu, an estuary that draws visitors in large numbers

Kadalundi Kadavu, where the Kadalundi River meets the Arabian Sea, has turned a popular tourism spot these days. The place, located on the border of Kozhikode and Malappuram districts, is under the Kadalundi-Vallikkunnu Community Reserve.

There is a bridge in the area which offers fine views of the Kadalundi bird sanctuary and numerous rocks on the seashore where visitors prefer to spend time. On holidays, the place is crowded with tourists, who arrive from even the neighbouring districts.

A boat ride too is arranged by Kadalundi Reserve Ecotourism Centre which enables visitors to enjoy the sights on the river as well as the sea. Attractions include the estuary, mangroves and migratory birds.

Meanwhile, the panchayat is planning to build a six-feet-wide nature walkway along the riverbank from the Community Reserve office to the estuary which would provide visitors easy access to area. Local residents have also demanded a tourism island project in Kadalundi Kadavu covering the Community Reserve Ecotourism Centre, Mullamel Fort at Chaliyam and Pulimutt to attract more visitors.
