Varkala is a quaint little fishing hamlet, just 50 Km from Thiruvananthapuram International Airport (Capital city of Kerala). Varkala is a place where hills are located close to the sea. The town has many natural fishers and springs which makes it one of the favoured tourist destinations. The beaches are relatively untouched and clean as well. One of the main beaches located in Varkala is the Papanasam Beach, close to the beach stands the Janardhana Swamy Temple. This temple is more than 2000 years old and is one of the attractions of the place. The temple is home to an old bell that was taken from an ancient shipwreck of a Dutch Freighter. Varkala Beach is a popular beach where one can enjoy various activities such as paragliding and parasailing. Along the rocky shoreline of Varkala are a couple of coves with many a virgin sandy beach. The Thiruvambady Beach with its exotic silvery black sand is the all-time favourite.
On the tranquil and relaxing beach we have selected an ayurvedic resort perched on the rock formation cliff hugging the Thiruvambady Beach, spread over one-acre of prime land. The contours of the land and the coconut palms have been judiciously left intact with a marvellous open-air restaurant overlooking the beach and offering stunning view of endless sunsets setting the horizon ablaze every evening. This is an unique place where you can enjoy and unwind on the sandy beach, walk or hike on the cliff and experience traditional Ayurvedic treatments by professional therapists.
October to March is considered to be the best time to visit Kerala. These months are usually the peak season.
