    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.

    This is my 3rd year staying at the Green Palace where I have been doing daily yoga classes with Haridas. He is a lovely kind man and an ex excellent teacher. His classes are suitable for any level as he adapts each class to the level, I am not very flexible or strong so I do different poses for my ability, whilst others of more advanced levels do theirs. I can only highly recommend anyone visiting Varkala, go to his class. Thank you Haridas for all you have helped me with.

    My wife and I tried paragliding on a beach, for the very first time. There is usually parasailing on the beach, by these guys do paragliding owing to the unique nature of the Varkala beach and the cliff.

    You get almost 20 mins in the air with a expert who makes every move look and feel so easy. The experience is exhilarating – flying like a bird over the beach, next to the cliff. Wow!

    We also tried stand up paddle boarding, and it’s a Kerala backwaters experience like nothing else. Must try. Kudos to Aurélien, Ajith and Aakaash.

    If you've always wanted to try surfing but weren't sure you'd be good enough, I HIGHLY, highly recommend trying Moon Waves Surf School. Not only are the instructors patient and encouraging, when you do manage to catch a wave and stand up, they're like proud parents, toasting your achievement to anyone who'll listen. A trip to Varkala is incomplete without a class with them.

    I took my first surf lessons at Drifters surf club and I saw progress as of my 1st lesson. Both Ajith and Vinu are excellent coaches. Their coaching helped me progress and enjoy my first surf experience. Thank you guys 🙏🏽 See you again soon.

    Had the best time on the vegetarian thali cookery lesson. The two ladies who did the lesson were so friendly and smiley.
    They broke down the dishes into very easy steps and it actually feels like I could be able to do these at home!
    Go hungry as you make so much delicious food!
