Kannur is well connected by bus and buses run up and down the coast connecting the town to other beaches. The KSRTC stand and the Central bus stand are the biggest hubs from where you can catch local buses for short distances in and around the Kannur district. Ask for timetables, though note that they will probably be in Malayalam. Schedules are rarely adhered to, and it would be best if you inquire about bus timings and best routes from your hotel desk beforehand.

These are unregulated though so it would be best if you book a taxi through your hotel and feel free to negotiate the prices.

Kannur is a beach town and as such, there aren't many trekking trails around it. You can walk leisurely along the stretch of the beach shores but for a more rigorous trek, you will have to travel to Paithalmala, a hill station in the Kannur district at a distance of 65 km from Kannur. Here there are plenty of trekking options during the summer and monsoon months that offer panoramic views of the Western Ghats.
