TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue Water Beach Resort Varkala
We stayed in a non AC chalet, set in pretty gardens with a sea view. Our bed was comfy and the fan and water both worked well. The best part was listening to the waves crashing on the shore and walking just a few metres to a small but surprisingly clean beach, which we shared with fishermen hauling in their catch in the morning, and mending their boat during the day. There is a great coastal path running in one direction to Varkala where there are shops and restaurants along the cliff with the beach below and in the opposite direction past a couple of small resorts to Edava. We had lunch and dinner once and the food was good, but the menu is fairly limited and there were other places within walking distance. They are building some new chalets behind the restaurant which are much closer together than the existing units.

... a few beach dogs (who took it upon themselves to guide us across the dunes), and one lone figure silhouetted in the distant river, casting his net for fish.
On our second day we hired a moped from our hotel (for the price of about £2.50) and drove south along the coast, following miles and miles of beach in that direction until, once again a large estuary halted our progress. The entire area around Varkala is a beautiful stretch of coastline. Unfortunately, as in much of ...
... straight at you - boobs, eyes, hair (Emile), and often come and ask for photo's. Best thing is not to engage eye contact. Secondly, the extravagant throat and nasal passage clearing followed by a hearty spit. You can hear it several blocks away. It's also quite wearing being so clearly ripped off all the time, whether it's tuk tuks, clothing, whatever - we agree and haggle a price and then, ...
... take a rick-shaw to Varkala Town and then the train to Kollam.I really like Varkala, but now I expect new places and new friends and maybe adventures.Meanwhile forces are returning, as I was told and that 'it would have taken a week or ten days to get back in shape. I think I was also influenced by the rich food that I went through in recent days that made me recall a couple of pounds, but that's okay ', I was too skinny and ...
... wading through the river to check in.
The next 2 days I got very wet, figured out where to eat, how to get about, got scammed a few times but saw some canny temples and sights. Whilst also realising I had forgotten the basics like malaria tablets and mossy repellant, though when 2 months supply costs 300Rs I think I made the right choice in the long run. I've spent the first week travelling almost none stop from big city to big city and not meeting anyone western. Going to ...
... to do a bit of yoga for the first time since arriving, it's quite hard to find casual yoga classes when we are only in the city for a few days at a time, most are courses that go for a week. In Varkala is was easy, the cliff face was lined with yoga classes. I got some kind of a bug and spent a fun night spewing my guts up, the worst thing was, those bamboo huts were really cute, but the walls were weaved flax. We could hear our ...
