I enjoyed my two nights in Varkala and this is the only place right by the beach. It's only a short walk up to the cliff where the other bars and restaurants are too.

If you are visiting Varkala beach, you should try the taste of seafood dishes from Marine palace restaurant. They had a wide variety of seafood dishes, biriyanis including fish and prawns biriyanis. If you are food lover, you should once visit this restaurant. You will love the ambiance you get here viewing the beach while having the food.

The Location of Varkala Marine Palace is perfect! The beach is just in front of you. We had a beautiful room with lots of space at the first floor and had the perfect ocean view. You have to walk a view minutes to the areas of Varkala that are more busy, but for us it was perfect, that we had... More

We stayed here for four nights and loved the location and the rhythm of beach days. Room was enormous and clean and we had a terrace overlooking the garden. The accommodation even came with our own little dog who adopted us during our stay. (It helps if you like dogs when you visit Varkala!) It's in a wonderful spot right... More
