Varkala, a small town in Kerala, could very well be called the Land of sand, beaches and clear blue water. If you’re looking for beaches and are fed up with the crowds & steep prices, then its well worth checking out Varkala. The beaches around this area are excellent and it extends out all around the cliff face for 500 meters. Varkala, 42 km away from Thiruvananthapuram, is the best spot along the Kerala coast to watch the sunset.
The sight of the sun melting into the sea would blossom your poetic sense. The mineral waters gushing from the hill is believed to have medicinal properties.
Varkala also houses a leading pilgrim centre in Kerala. The 800-year old Janardhana temple, dedicated to Ayyappan and Hanuman, atop the hill has brought a sobriquet for the region, Southern Kasi (Benares). Non-Hindus are not permitted to enter the inner sanctum but can explore around the temple.
