Description

Kappad Beach is famous as the beach near Kozhikode, where the Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama landed on May 20, 1498. His voyage established the sea route from Europe to India. This heralded the arrival and permanent presence of various European merchant companies, leading to eventual domination and rule by the English East India Company and later the period of British colonial rule.
