about varkala

Relatively secluded and considerably less polluted, Varkala is a beach city straight out of your fantasies. A beautiful coming together of waves and hills, the fishing hamlet of Anjengo is a must visit here to enjoy fishing, followed by digging into yummy fish curry. Visit the Sivagiri Mutt, a pilgrimage centre instituted by Sree Narayana Guru, to balm your spirit. Bask in the sun at the famous Papanasam Beach or the quiet Edava Beach. The Edava- Nadayara lake is fringed by thick palm fronds and also has a lagoon, and is probably one of the few places where one sees insurmountable natural beauty. Driving down to these locations is a treat as most roads parallel the coast lines. Relax on the beach and enjoy the looming mountain scape, or trek up a mountain and behold the sight of waves crashing against the shores.

For the tourist, small town Varkala’s allure lies entirely along the seashore, the 2-km-long cliff face stretching from the South Cliff to the Thiruvambady Beach. The North Cliff, the main tourist hub, is sandwiched in between. Varkala offers all the pleasures of the more famous Kovalam, sans the crowds and hawkers. It is also fringed by serene backwaters, natural springs and beaches. But Varkala is also a pilgrimage spot, where a 2,000-year-old temple by the sea attracts devotees. Thousands come here every year in the belief that their sins will be washed away by the holy waters at Papanasham Beach.
