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

This is one of my favourite beaches especially that it has those wonderful fresh water springs to wash the salt out of your hair after a swim

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.

The water of The Papasnanam Beach/Varkala Beach is very Sandy and Salty. It's very difficult for anyone to be in the water for more than 5-10 minutes. Also, the shopkeepers on the beach are not very friendly to outsiders esp non-local Indians.
