  • A very picturesque beach on the Arabian Sea especially when viewed from the cliff. Located in Varkala, Kerala. Lot of foreigners visit Varkala beach. An array of eateries and artifacts stores on the cliff area. It is one of the best beaches in Kerala.

  • A pleasant one, right next to the cliff and amazing place to spend an evening. Most the sea bed in the beach is rough , only at the end(sea bed is flat) you are allowed to get into the water. Be carefully about the jelly fishes.

  • Nice beach and a good place for the weekend. But the beach and surrounding areas can be maintained better. Certain parts are kinda dirty too. The white sands lose its charm because of that.

  • Beautiful place to enjoy your weekends. Been there several times with my friends, its is really wonderful. The waves are not that dangerous. Surfing is also available there.

  • The shallow waters of the beach allows you to go fairly inside the sea... Not too much... The waves aren't very strong.
