Located at a distance of just 10 kilometers away from the peaceful hamlet of Varkala, the Varkala Beach is also referred to as Papanasam Beach. This is because the water here is said to be sacred as it can wash away one’s sins according to Hindu beliefs. A beach that offers the visitor a perfect blend of solitude and beauty is bound to provide a relaxing ambiance to the visitor. The view of the Arabian Sea against the imposing cliff that stretches along the seashore makes for an impressive view.
The beach itself is divided into two parts, the southern area of the beach is considered to be a religious spot for Hindu devotees as the place is at the end of the road that leads from the Janardhana Swamy Temple. For tourists, the northern part of the beach offers the attraction of the natural mineral spring that is situated right beneath the cliff.
The beach offers a variety of seafood fares for those who would like to indulge in some local seafood delicacies
