is Varkala kulam(pond) wherein one can have a swim,have an interactive session with the fishes, and feel the water that flows from the holy abode. (note: renovation of the pond is underway, so no swimming for the time being).

keep walking, and walking until..you begin to feel the cool breeze against you and you stand witness to the mighty beach.

One can keep walking towards right, towards north, and indulge with the sea, there are options to walk along the beach wherein the waves intermittently graze your feet, jump along with the waves, bathe and swim, make mud castles, laze around with a story book in hand, sun bathing, or even try surfing.

there is something one must never forget to check out, the water that comes from the hills is very pure form of water, people do drink it, Event though I saw them drinking it ,I didn't give it a go, but yeah , the water was pretty cold, people also have a bath in this cool water once they are drained off their energy after having a bout with the sea.

the experience was pretty amazing, the breeze, the shining water, I could kinda see the entire see glazing up in the sun's brightness, the entire ambiance was boosted up by soothing music in the backdrop.
