Clean beach, ideal for kids to play. Visit early in the morning for a beautiful and calm beach experience. Lifeguards are available.

South beach or Papanasam beach or North Beach: all these beaches are peaceful, soaking in natural beauty. A must visit!

Its a decent beach but the water is not as shallow as Kovalam. Kovalam is more fun compared to Varkala, The cliff view is great and should visit this place not for the beach but the view from cliff.

Beautiful beach which offers a different experience compared to other kerala beaches as there are cliffs near the beach. Beautiful sunset and you can also see the sea in blue and green colours sometimes due to the difference in water flow.

A must visit place in Trivandrum. The beach has an amazing view, especially in evenings. The view of beach and sea from the cliff is just awesome. There are many descent cafes and restaurants at cliff, where we can chill while enjoying the beautiful view of sea from the top of the cliff.
