Varkala Beach, Trivandrum

Varkala Beach is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Trivandrum. Varkala Beach, situated 54 Km north of Trivandrum, offers a perfect holiday destination for the quintessential globetrotter. The beach has a tranquil and calm atmosphere that attracts innumerable tourists. In addition to being a beautiful sea side resort, it is also an important Hindu center of pilgrimage.

Varkala Beach is also known for its attractive landscape. A wonderful combination of cliffs, sun-kissed sands and vast expanse of the sea makes Varkala Beach an amazing sight to behold. Varkala beach is also known as ' Papanashini' since it is believed that a dip in the holy waters of the beach will wash out all your sins, thus purifying your body and spirit.

Major Attractions:

Sree Janardhana Swamy temple

The Sree Janardhana Swamy temple, dedicated to Lord Ayyappa, is believed to be around 2000 years old. According to the Malayalam calendar, the new moon day in the month of 'Karkidakam', is regarded as auspicious. It is during this time that thousands of pilgrims throng to Varkala Beach to pray and offer 'Vavu Bali', so that the souls of their departed relatives may rest in eternal peace. A nature cure center situated near Varkala Beach is yet another popular attraction.

Mineral water springs

According to beliefs, the mineral water springs near Varkala Beach are abundant in medicinal properties. You can drink or bathe in the water from the mineral springs.

The Vishnu temple

The Varkala Beach also has a shrine of Lord Vishnu, believed to be more than 2000 years old.

Beach Activities

If you are an adventure freak, then Varkala Beach offers you a zillion things to enjoy! Indulge lavishly in any of the water sports such as Windsurfing, Scuba diving, Parasailing, Beach volleyball or just go swimming in the pristine water of the sea.

And if you are one of those irresistible shopping maniacs, then you are, perhaps, in the right place! Go for shopping at any one of the beach bazaars. The shops are replete with beautiful little trinkets and souvenirs that you could very well take home with you.
