“Beach in monsoons”
Review of Varkala Beach

Reviewed August 5, 2013

I read a lot of positive review about Varkala Beach and it is not that nice during the monsoon (our trip was on 10 July). The wave was too strong to swim and the beach looked dark itself . The cliff was senic and many good, fancy restaurants along. During our stay, there were only 2 or 3 restaurants opened and we enjoyed one of those a lot. I think Varkala Beach in monsoon is not exciting and fun as in dry season ! So if you go on monsoons, should not expect too much !

Good beach but not to be visited during monsoons and there's hardly 10 mts of the beach to walk on and most of the shacks and restaurants near the beach would be closed.

I've been to Varkala four times, just becoz the the Varkala beach, I feel that this beach is the best place for relaxation, its nice to spend whole day at beach and enjoy tasty food at shacks on the cliff, specially the sea food, you can select the fish and it is cooked as per your taste, evenings were so wonderful, enjoy your food and drinks with light music, chit chat with your family or friends sitting on the cliff side restaurants, I really like the candle light dinner.
Varkala is amazing holiday destination, don't miss it.
