Silversea Luxury Cruises A Beypore


Located at the mouth of the Chaliyar River, Beypore, it was one of the prominent ports and fishing harbours of ancient Kerala. The boat-building yard here, famous for the construction of the Uru (the Arabian trading vessel), boasts a tradition of almost 1500 years. It was a mighty seaport where Arab, Chinese and East African traders once converged. View more

Malabar trade, which is focused on spices and textiles, once centred on the teeming coastal town of Calicut, unofficial capital of the north, and incidentally from which the term calico (white, unbleached cotton) is derived. Vasco da Gama was first welcomed here in 1498; at the nearby village of Kappad, a commemorative plaque memorializes the spot where the Portuguese explorer is said to have landed. Now also known as Kozhikode, the city is of marginal interest to travellers, being more of a go-between point for journeys farther south or north, or inland to Kerala’s highest rainfall region.
