Chithari – a small tropical island
Green and beautiful, a little effaced by the historic Bekal Fort and beach, Chithari is still a virgin destination. The island is accessible only by boat, often wooden canoes that belong to the locals. A part of the Bekal Tourism Project, this backwater area has all it takes to become a mega tourist destination. Chithari is located 7 km from Kanhangad.
Nearest railway station: Kanhangad, about 5 km
Nearest airport: Mangalore, about 50 km and Calicut International Airport, about 200 km
