Dharmadam Island

Dharmadam Island in Kannur is surrounded by green coconut palms and wild bushes. It’s only 100 meters from Dharmadam, which is between Kannur and Thalassery. Thalassery town, just 4 kilometers away, can be seen from the island.

The island formed naturally, a result of lateritic rock projecting between two arms of the Anjarakkandy River and the sea. During low tide, people can walk to the island as the ocean recedes, creating a pathway. These walks, with water levels less than knee-deep, make this island unique among Kannur’s beachside destinations. However, it’s crucial to be vigilant and return before the tides become stronger.

Alternatively, you can reach the island by taking a boat from the south end of the nearby Moidu Bridge along the Kannur–Thalasserry highway. There’s a well nearby, but don’t be confused—the island is uninhabited. Covering 5 acres, this spot is also rich in medicinal plants and herbs. Given its lush greenery, it’s aptly nicknamed the ‘Green Island’.
