A coastal town in Kerala, Varkala is located 51 km north of Trivandrum and 37 km south of Kollam in south Kerala. Varkala is relatively a new destination in Kerala, one that became famous due to spill over holidays from Kovalam.

What makes the coastline of Varkala exceptional is its landscape. The towering cliffs that stand like silent sentinels, guarding the sparkling waters and the beach.

Highly unusual land formations, the sheerness of the cliffs, and the view from atop are breathtaking. High red rocks, coconut trees lined along the Arabian Sea coastline are an attractive sight. Nature in its pristine glory remains untouched.

Varkala is the home to the famous Papanasam beach. It is also renowned as a pilgrimage centre due to the presence of Sri Narayana + more about Varkala
