An hours drive north of Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala is being rapidly developed as an alternative to the more well known beach at Kovalam. The beautiful white sand beach is overlooked by sheer red cliffs which provide stunning views.

Apart from the beach the other places of interest are the 2000 year old Sree Janardhana Swamy temple in the town and a nature care centre where treatment is entirely based on diet control and natural therapy.
