Overbury's Folly

At the heart of Thalassey, overlooking the Arabian Sea, is Overburys Folly, a seashore recreational park developed under Thalassery Heritage Tourism Circuit.

It has been named after E.N.Overbury, who, while serving as the local judge of Thalassery in the 1970s wanted a picnic spot in the area. It stands on the slope of a hillock, in close proximity to the sub-collector’s bungalow, district court and stadium. The folly has an open air coffee shop, a park and a watch tower. Benches dot the walkways, providing seating for a convenient view of the sunset.

A major tourist attraction at Thalassery, the folly attracts people of all ages, from children to newly-weds with their photographers in tow for plenty of photo opportunities to elders who have come for a whiff of the sea while sipping on coffee. Well-maintained, the park is an ideal place to catch up with friends in the evening or for some refreshing me-time.
