Our Last Stop in India: The Beaches of Varkala

The last stop on our two-month India tour was the city of Varkala. Varkala is another beach town but what makes this beach special is that it is positioned right next to cliffs, which makes for some spectacular views and some great waves. We had a wonderful last few days here, eating seafood caught fresh that afternoon and relaxing on the beach.

One highlight of our stay was that the owner of our guesthouse, Debra, takes her guests on an early morning, 7-kilometer walk along the cliffs a few times each week. We walked with her one morning and were able to watch the sun come up over the palm trees, see the fisherman getting their boats ready for the day, and walk along the beautiful coastline that makes Varkala so different from the rest of the Indian beaches.

We can’t believe that our ten weeks in India has finally come to an end. After arriving in Delhi, neither of us knew what to think, but now we can confidently say that we both loved India. The people, the food, the sights, the smells, are all so special to this country and we are already planning our next trip back!

  1. A fitting end to your wonderful India adventure. You certainly opened my eyes to this beautiful country. I wish the rest of your tour is equally fulfilling.
