About Varkala

Perched on the clifftops overlooking the Arabian Sea, Varkala is a popular beach resort on the Kerala coast. It’s home to an ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple and beautiful beaches and is also a hub for Ayurvedic treatments and yoga.

Things to do

Varkala clusters around picturesque Papanasam Beach, where it’s believed that swimming in the water washes away all sins. It’s a popular spot for sunbathing, parasailing and horseback riding, in addition to watching memorable sunsets from atop the red laterite cliffs.

If you want to explore the beaches further afield, follow the promenade that hugs the cliffs north to scenic Odayam Beach. The trail continues past the serene beaches and tranquil backwaters of Edava and on to Kappil and its famous Bhagavathy Temple.

Varkala’s 2,000-year-old Janardana Swami Temple attracts Hindus from across India who pay their respects to Vishnu and Hanuman. It features a historic bell that was retrieved from a Dutch shipwreck and paintings of Lord Hanuman in different poses. Many believe that praying at the temple will relieve you of a variety of ailments.

Yogis will find a range of schools offering drop-in classes, retreats and teacher training, while traditional Kathakali dance performances are held each evening at the Varkala Culture Centre.
