Today’s post is focusing on just one of the many places I have visited in India: Varkala.
Varkala is a small town situated on the coast in the state of Kerala. The unique cliff top boardwalk and layed back beach vibe coupled with the stunning ocean views draw many tourists to the area… Some never leave! I have visited Varkala a few times in recent years and have to say it is one of my favourite places in India. Perfect for a chilled out break from the seeming chaos that is India!
For anyone planning a trip, I have put together my personal guide to Varkala!
Place to Drink: No holiday is complete without cocktails at sunset, right? Luckily there is a place that delivers both of these at the north end of the cliff. Sunset Restaurant has the best mojitos around and the endless view of the ocean provides the perfect setting.
So there it is Emily’s guide to Varkala!! Hopefully I have helped anyone planning a visit.
So.. This is what I have been up to for the last three weeks. Travelling around India and experiencing the amazing sights, places and people. We visited gorgeous old palaces in Jaipur, cruised the backwaters on a houseboat in Alleppey, relaxed on the beach in Goa, met some lovely locals in Kovalam and of course, stuffed ourselves on delicious Indian food! This trip was a lot more relaxed than previous trips as we decided to spend a bit more time on the beach doing not much at all.. instead of the usual rush to cram as many places as we can into such a short period of time!! However, we did manage to visit a few places that we haven’t been to before and so we got to experience just a little bit more of Incredible India!!
