Varkala Beach is a famous beach and is known as mini Goa. It is roughly 35 kilometers from Thiruvananthapuram. It is definitely, worth a visit along with Varkala Cliff and Thiruvanmbadi beach.
The Varkala cliff is unique where you can look down the beach and brilliant coastline. One can also view sun set leisure with your car parked near the cliff.
Another wonderful thing here is there are lot of resorts under various budgets with wonderful views. One can also visit the 2000 year old Sri Janardhanaswamy temple after sunset.
