#1 of 230 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.

  • Lovely long beach accessible from the Cliffs by a series of steps. No sun lo This beautiful beach is accessible by a series of steps from the cliff. Totally unspoilt no sun loungers or commercialism. ...  more »
  • Varkala Beach is beautiful but there is the upside of the scenery of this beautiful cliff strewn with plastic, glass bottles, all kinds of rubbish! Three years ago garbage cans had been installed, women were cleaning the beach certainly it was not nickel but it all disappeared! It is a shame for ecology because at the time of the monsoon the ocean recovers all this rubbish! I'm not talking about Blacksand Beach side Deluxe Spring or trash mounds are live on the beach! Ecology is the business of all (tourists and Indians)! Thank you to the Government of Kerala to continue to act to avoid this disaster!!! Namaste
