The beautiful coastal town of Varkala will melt your worries away with its peaceful seaside cliffs adjoining the Arabian Sea. Varkala with its scenic location makes for a perfect holiday location. Varkala cuddles many beautiful attractions in its bosoms such as immaculate beaches, soaring hills, shimmering lakes, majestic forts and stunning lighthouses. This tranquil hamlet is still away from the layers of modern world and thus, remains an unknown heaven to escape the worldly chaos. 


Varkala Beach is the most popular attraction of the Varkala town. Drenched in solitude, the Varkala Beach makes for a perfect weekend getaway. While the southern area of the beach is known for the Janardhana Swamy Temple, the northern area has earned popularity due to its natural mineral spring. Another popular retreat here is the Thiruvambadi Beach. It is known for its black sand. Nestled with lush coconut groves, the beach’s shoreline is perfect for leisurely strolls.
Those seeking peace, can also visit the Sivagiri Mutt, a popular ashram of Shri Narayana Guru. Constructed around 1904, the ashram is mostly visited by devotees during 30 December to 1 January, when a grand annual festival is celebrated here. Many debates, vibrant processions, seminars, public meetings and cultural shows are also organised here.

Apart from these, the Janardhanaswamy Temple also holds great importance among the locals here. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the temple dates back to 2000 years.
