Kerala is famous for its Beaches and Back waters. Varkala is one of those beaches in southern Kerala where cliffs are found adjacent to the Arabian Sea and this is the uniqueness of it. This phenomenon is very rare and gives breath taking view from the cliff with wider angle of the ocean waters. Prepare going during Sunset or Sunrise for best view.
If you are looking to spend great time with your friends and family over a weekend then Varkala is the best place to be in. With line of Restaurants offering variety of cuisines to choose from Indian, Mughlai, Chinese to Continental with specialty of Sea Food along with Shopping street for People who love to shop while on a vacation. Buying a souvenir for memories or trying tradition Indian wear – Kurtas or Tibetian artifacts everything is available on the shopping street for tourists.
On the way back from Varkala to Trivandrum there are lot of good spots to witness. Better if you opt for Beach road that will give you breath taking views of the beach. Just like this bridge where I found backwaters connecting the Arabian sea.
Through my personal experience, if you are in Kerala then go for 2 wheeler either Bicycle or Scooter to explore the hidden areas and back waters of GOD’s own country – Kerala in a best way.
On the way back as we took Beach road named as Chilakkoor to Vallakkadavu Road which passes through local houses of fisherman on one side and Beach on the other side, we stopped Sea shore and it was all isolated, no person nearby, sound of waves crashing the Rocks on Sea side overall the view was spectacular and great for calming the mind and senses.
Here are some of the pictures from that spot.
Lastly we stopped a Family restaurant Chimney for meals. The ambience of this place is great with full interiors done by bamboo from Walls to Roof. The food is awesome and they serve cuisines of all variety of Veg and Non-Veg options. Service is great and hospitality will be memorable.
