The Kadalur Point Lighthouse is situated in Kadalur, near Koyilandy in Kozhikode district on the coast of Arabian sea in India.[3][4] The circular stone masonry tower has a height of 34 meters. The tower is painted with black and white bands. The lighthouse started its operation in 1907. The light source is a metal halide lamp.

In the 18th Century Kadalur Point was known as Cotta Point. It is believed that the lighthouse was built after a shipwreck on the rocky shores at the point and one can still see the remains of it.[5]
