Chill Out on the Beach of Varkala

Chill Out on the Beach of Varkala

Beach Essentials

Where: Varkala beach, south west India
When: October is a cool and secluded time to visit
Happenings: Mineral springs and a fantastic massage
Remember to bring: Aromatherapy massage oil and sun protection

If you’ve been on the road for some time, you may need to recover awhile at Varkala, on India’s south west coast.


In the south of India it’s never really cool, but pleasantly warm in winter. After the ‘cool’ season temperatures begin to rise in February and by April it’s unbearable.


– Visit the Mineral Springs
Varkala is an important Hindu pilgrim centre. The mineral springs here are said to have curative properties.

Get a Massage

The massage technique has been a closely guarded secret for thousands of years, but for many tourists it’s a welcome revival from the toils of the road.
