Varkala beach was great during monsoons. I stayed at the Odayyam beach which is nearby. The views from cliff are great and you get a lot of eateries on the cliff. Good place to relax and unwind.

This area of North Cliffs is accessible for walking and appreciating the huge waves and sea breezes. You can also wash away your sins in the holy waters from the channel going out to sea or further up the beach from a pipe outlet of water. The views and sea breezes are worth experiencing - visit to Mariya Spices and Fresh juices worth a stop too - he makes great fresh lime sodas and stocks the A1 brand of banana chips - great spot for just chilling out.

The beach is very beautiful especially during the sunset time. It is surrounded by cliffs on one side and sea on the other. The beach has life guards. The beach has limited parking space and limited space since it has cliff on the sides. The tides are very strong and getting deep into the water is not recommended. Compared to other beaches in Kerala, this one is not that commercialized, hence a must visit. Beach is very well maintained, neat and clean

Safe place to spend a quality 'alone' time, relaxing. Not very crowded. Enjoy the view from the nearby eateries. More or less clean beach though rituals are performed. Coast guards are there to keep watch on you. Second trip to the sea beach. There are shops which sell garments. Price is bit on higher side, most probably due to the foreign tourists. Auto stand is nearby.

Papanasam ir Varkala beach is one of the beautiful beaches of Kerala. The view of the beach is breathtaking with cliff on east and sea on west. It may be one of the longest beaches of Kerala. There are a number of visitors here with majority of them being foreigners.
