Best Time To Visit:
Winter is the best time to visit Varkala. Starting from December to February, the weather is relatively pleasant and the sea color is at its best! It has a tropical climate and hence summers are very humid and monsoons are very heavy.
Where to stay:
Varkala Cliff would be an ideal location for stay if you want to wake up to the sea waves and be close to all the hustle bustle of the town. Located on the cliff are many beautiful (and expensive !) resorts overlooking the blue green sea. You can always opt for a non sea view room which will be relatively inexpensive. There are both budget and luxury options few kms away from the cliff if you want to be far from the crowd and want something more isolated.
