Cities of Kerala

Varkala

Varkala Travel
Varkala has now emerged as a hot spot destination of Kerala. Being in Varkala is very momentous for tourists who intend to spend time leisurely in the beaches of Kerala. This beach destination is an absolute favorite for tourists, as it is here that one can spend time doing absolutely nothing while holidaying. Varkala is basically a small town perched at a distance of 55 kms in the north of Thiruvananthapuram. However, Varkala is so quaint that there is no indication that this town can also be on many a tourist itinerary.

The landscape of this amazing town is what makes the coastline of Varkala exceptional. The beach has towering cliffs that stand like silent sentinels, guarding the sparkling waters. The visitors of Varkala are simply astounded by the unusual land formations, the sheerness of the cliffs and the view that the rocky cliffs offer from its top. Besides, the shining white sands, the sky touching the blue water of the sea, the red soil of the hilltop, yellow green paddy fields and green coconut trees together make a composite picture of the beautiful and awesome nature of Varkala. The pristine glory of the beaches of Varkala remain so untouched that one literally has to climb down the cliff or scramble over rocks in order to reach the secluded parts of the beach.
