Varkala Beach

Varkala Beach

The southern state of Kerala has a 580km long meandering coastline with numerous scenic beaches along the way.  The Varkala beach stands out the most as it is the only beach in Kerala with a majestic cliff overlooking it. This 80 feet high red laterite cliff is unique as it is a veritable blueprint of geological changes from during the mio-pliocene age (1.3 to 25 million years ago).


It is known as a ‘Warkallai formation’ and has been declared as a potential Geopark by UNESCO. There are 90 geoparks around the world, but the Varkala cliff will be the first in India.
