Papanasam Beach, Varkala Reviews

  • Clean beach, with scenic views all around. The cliff on the back of beach makes it so special. Attracts large crowd and one can stay there till 11pm. Easy to park, no fee and is crowded during peak hours. Best place to hang out with both friends and family. A long walk on the beach will make it a memorable one.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches in India. The cliff on the shore gives a wonderful view of the sunrise and sunset. Both with friends and family you can enjoy the whole panoramic view of the sea. Parking facility is available for free of cost.

  • Feel the natural "Awesomeness" of the mighty "Ocean" from 100 feet over the cliff. The place we're the vastness of the water, air and Earth can be felt and they blend in to one. With the hatchets and makeshift restaurants along the walkway filled with foreigners and live catch is a site to see. The sandwiched beach adds to the whole charm. Would highly recommend this place.

  • One of the Best Beaches In Kerala. Both Place for Leisure & Spiritual. Good Place to Visit with Family. Mostly Calm Sea for Bath & Play. But Need to Follow The Instructions of Coast Wardens For Our Safety
