Kozhikode South Beach, which has undergone a face-lift after the renovation, was inaugurated by Public Works Minister P A Muhammad Riyas on Thursday.
The beautification process was carried out by District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) and the work order has been given to a private firm to maintain the renovated area of the beach.
With the renovation, the beach has become beautiful with the latest amenities for the visitors.
The walls of the beach are now painted with pictures of prominent people from Kozhikode like Kuthiravattom Pappu, Gireesh Puthenchery, SK Pottekad and MT Vasudevan Nair. A tourist who comes to the beach can understand the cultural relevance of Kozhikode through the paintings here.
Dates tree and various plants are beautifully lined up on the walkway of the beach. These were planted in 2018 as part of the renovation work by Harbour Engineering department.
Good seating arrangements, in-built waste bins, children's play area, wash rooms, ramps for differently-abled persons are the latest highlights of the renovated beach.
The walkways are also properly lit up and the night view is now breathtaking.
