Varkala is a coastal town near Thiruvananthapuram. One thing that sets it apart from all other Kerala beach locations is its beautiful cliffs adjacent to the Arabian Sea, which you can’t find anywhere else as Kerala is majorly a flat land. It is an ideal tourist spot surrounded by greenery, beautiful meadows, deep puzzling valleys and dales. Enjoy all of this with awesome seafood and rejoice as you swim in the waters and bathe in the sun.
