    There are many tailors on the cliff, but head a little further and this is the ONLY one you should take your business to. Whether for bespoke, copies, or alterations, the workmanship at Asparagus is exceptional. Huge selection of silks, cottons, linens, block prints. Only wish I had found them sooner. Highly rate this wonderful tailors in Varkala.

    Cliff view is nice. It was a little too sunny on December 31st afternoon. The beaches are clean. It’s crowded though. Good to visit in morning or evening. Lot of street shopping options are there and restaurants have good ambiance. Looked perfect for swimming.

    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.

    Beautiful Kappil lake on one side of the road and Arabian sea on the other. Drove by this place, did not go for boating. I am sure an evening boat ride at the lake would be worth it.

    Visited the Golden Island on day 2 of my Kerala trip. It is situated around 10-15 kms from Varkala Centre. Plan was to visit Munroe Island but it was closed so we decided to visit this island. Kayaking happens near the island and there is a temple at the island. We took a boat ride to reach the island. It cost 1300 bucks for 6 people. We witnessed beautiful backwaters through the boat ride.

    the staff was very rude because we had cameras with us even though we weren't using it. But the view is stunning. It's beautiful over there, see the water and be on top of all those palm trees

    One of the most lovely Temples we have seen, although we also loved the Kali Temple too. I love to see local temples, eat local foods as well as hang out with local folk to get the real feel of the area. We love Varkala!

    Dr. Manoj, who manages this facility, is a very friendly, reliable, and helpful person. He came to the hotel to conduct individual interviews with the five people who chose to rely on him, demonstrating particular attentiveness and reassurance with the patients. His clinic is clean and well-maintained, with each room having a shower for use at the end of the treatment. The location close to the road is not pleasant, although it does not compromise the quality of the treatment.
