This is a natural fishing harbour situated near St. Angelo's Fort. A sea wall extending to a huge height, projecting from the fort separates the rough sea and inland water. Mechanised and country crafts can enter into the island from the sea and anchor safely. The beach is a natural and now a modernised fishing harbour built with assistance under the Indo Norwegian pact. The remnants of the temple & fort are still seen in Moppila bay. The bay was famous during the Kolathiri's regime as a commercial harbour that linked Kolathunadu with Lakshadweep and foreign countries, in imports. A sea wall projecting from the fort separates the rough sea and inland water. If the weather is favourable a ride in the sea will be a memorable experience.
