Beautiful view from cliff and it's one of the best place to see Sunset. Clean water, not much crowded, it will give you a pleasant experience for sure. It's worth visiting. Also good place to have a traditional ayurvedic massage and treatment.

Should be more clean. In spite of not being kept clean,it is worth visiting. A small one compares to Marina,Chennai.

A clean magnificient beach at a stones throw from the Taj. A morning stroll could make you find yourself amongst many fishermen. The strong currents of this beach are notable and its expanse is also inspiring.

The papanasam beach is usually a place where the locals arrive to carry out some ceremonies to wash away sins and offer funeral rituals. So we didnt stay much there. We drove to the cliff and spent some time in a cafe watching the ocean and the fishermen. That was worth the visit to Varkala.

Varkala is a small tourist resort on a cliff which makes the landscape wonderful. White beach is spacious,and sit on the beach waiting for the wonderful sunset is good for your heart and mind. The sea is a little choppy and care must be taken, but there is a man who is equipped with little whistle that will warn you... More

Varkala is a beach cliff and a beautiful place to stay. For adventure seekers this is not the place. There are no activities or water sports.There are just a series of hotels and sea facing restaurants....The place is just awesome to relax and enjoy the nature
