Dharmadam Island and Beach

The Virgin Beach and Picturesque Dharmadam Island is located 5 KM away North of Thalassery Town (Kerala State) India. It is believed that the Island is the result of some raging geological phenomenon by the ocean taking away vast land around. The rocks can be seen scattered all around the shore. Once it must be a part of the main land.

The beach and the island is paradise for numerous species of birds, Molluscs, Amphibians, Reptiles and Small mammals once.

Now because of rapid urbanization and the intervention of Tourism and irrational Tourism policies that harm the sustaining eco-system is harmed and a barren land is on due to introduction of Parks and massive concrete designs. The dumping of waste from nearby residential area is another ecological problem facing this beautiful place.

Now most of the birds and species once found has vanished or moving to other locations. It is necessary to preserve this virgin coconut grove Island and around environment intact for future.
