A small stone monument recognizes the arriving by Vasco da Gama with the engraving, "Vasco da Gama arrived here, Kappakadavu, in the year 1498."  This paved the way for a long  and tumultuous socio-political relationship between India and Europe. His undertaking gave the Europeans an sea route to reach the abundance of the Malabar coast.

There is a temple close-by accepted to be 800 years of age. There is likewise a rough headland extending into the ocean. The pleasant backwaters of Kozhikode offer a charming background. A ride down the backwaters through the Korappuzha waterway brings you to the shore.
The Korappuzha estuary, at Elathur on the best approach to Kappad, is a bit known vacationer territory.  The range around the adjacent Elathur Bridge, which runs over the waterway, is a focal point of shell fish (kallummakkaya) exchange. The sheer richness of shellfish found on the rocks projecting into the ocean is astonishing.
