Mahe can easily disappoint visitors because the whole area is less than 4 km2 and an extremely crowded National Highway intersects the village. The French character of the village has almost vanished and it looks like any other plain vanilla Kerala village.

Mahe is easily accessible from Kannur airport and Mahe railway station. Buses are available in plenty from Thalassery and Kannur.

Mahe cannot be explored in a vehicle because the total area is only four square kilometers. Walking is also impossible because of heavy highway traffic and too many noisy motorcycles. No visitor is likely to want to spend more than one day in Mahe because it has been overdeveloped into another Kerala town without a character (in spite of being officially not part of Kerala).

Mahe is a former French colony, so there are many French-style buildings and place names. The people of Mahe are all Indians who speak Malayalam.
