Varkala Beach, Varkala

4.4
#1 of 186 in Outdoors in Kerala
Relax on the scenic sands of Varkala Beach, noted for having the only cliff on the Arabian seaside and boasting natural mineral springs. Take a dip in the clean, blue water--which according to local beliefs washes away all sins--sunbathe, or take a peaceful stroll along the sand. Climb the steps to the top of the cliff, which features a paved, coconut palm-fringed road, to enjoy a picturesque view of the beach. To plan Varkala vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • One of the best beach in Kerala. Varkala cliff is like a little Goa, it's very beautiful to hangout here. Many tourists from around the world visit here. ✌✌✌✌ There are yoga centers and many cliff side restaurants with an amazing view towards the beach.

  • A better beach than kollam beach. A great place to spend your vacation and also spend time with friends. You can get all sorts of beach experience at Varkala. It's easy to locate and travel there.
  • The cliff view is the best this beach would offer. That view is just mind blowing. There are many restaurants where you can enjoy food and drinks accompanied by cool breeze from the sea. This beach is one of the best picturesque beaches in kerala for sure.
  • I had never seen before as beautiful, unbelievable and incredible beach in Kerala. It's one of the best beach across over India. If those are interested in travelling then they must visit this beach before die. Mountain cliff makes this beach more beautiful. There are lots of water sports and paragliding facilities available. I liked most and memory forever. Everyone will enjoy there because water is very clean and beach also. so that is why kerala is said to be god own country. ❤❤❤
  • One of the best beaches in India and view from Varkala cliff is just a lifetime experience. Amazing sunset in the sea. Best place to spend your holidays. Definitely would like to go again.
