We are located in a Hindu area with several temples. There is Durga and Kali Temple 10 minutes walking from here and a 2000 years old temple to Vishnu 5 minutes by rickshaw.
We call Varkala the Varanasi of the South. I live here since 7 years, and I can assure you, this is a Vortex, an amazing energetic, spiritual powerful place.


There is yoga and Ayurveda everywhere in Varkala. You can benefit from ayurvedic massages and treatments, as well as courses.


There are several beaches along the coast, the main beach, Papanasam Beach is 10 minutes walking from our place, and Black Beach and Oddayam Beach 20 minutes walking and Kappil Beach 1h walking through the cliffs.
On the main beach you can find sun umbrellas, Surf and Body Boards for renting and well as Stand Up Paddling boards.
You can also make a jump with paragliding with a professional from the cliff.


The backwaters are 15 minutes from here by rickshaw and it’s a magical place where you can go on canoe trip to the Golden Island and stop to wash the Sunset in a non-touristic beach.


You can visit early morning time the fisherman’s on the beach and the 2 local vegetable and fish markets, where you can find some organic local fruits and vegetables.


This beach is 20 minutes by rickshaw from here and it’s a gorgeous beach with sea and backwaters. In alternative if you are ready to walk, it’s about 1h of amazing walk through the Cliffs where you sea the infinite Arabian Sea, the palm trees and nature, the local people, it’s just breathtaking, I highly recommend.
