Imposing cliffs, pristine waters and sandy shores come together to offer you the alluring Varkala Beach. Situated in the Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala, Varkala beach greets the grand waters of the Arabian sea. If you are holidaying at the Club Mahindra resort at Ashtamudi, then the Varkala beach tops the list of places to see near Ashtamudi. From the resort at Ashtamudi, it will take you approximately 1 and a half hour to get to Varkala beach.
Varkala beach is also known as Papanasam beach. Translated, it means a beach that absolves you of all sins and impurities. The beach is a great destination for sun-bathing and swimming. The gorgeous views of the dusky sunsets leave all travellers spellbound. Varkala beach is also famous for its natural spring. This spring has medicinal and remedial properties. A dip in these hallowed waters is sure to set you free from sins of the past.
When compared to other beaches of Kerala, Varkala beach is still relatively less crowded. This makes it all the more perfect for a relaxed family picnic. You could indulge in games like cricket, unwind with a book, even enjoy a small meditation session when you visit the beach. Sit gazing at the towering cliffs while you sip some coconut water. These cliffs are of tertiary sedimentary formation and are called the Varkala formation by geologists. A 2000-year-old temple of Lord Janardhan Swamy stands on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful beach. Apart from this, there are other things to do at Varkala beach like take Ayurveda massage, play beach volleyball etc.
