Its been almost 7 years in this city and I have never got a chance to see this beauty till now. But this year, I got to visit the place a couple of time .

It’s for my friend’s birthday, we planned a surprise trip for her for the weekend.

Varkala is 30 km away from our place, so we took our bikes for the journey.

We planned to visit Anjengo fort and an Island nearby the fort, which is seldom visited by tourists.

Fort was small, but it is well maintained. Though the roads to Island were in worst condition, it was worth a one time watch.


After the fort visit, we headed straight to Varkala. We booked the hotel online. Though the hotel and services were miserable, the sea facing rooms were a relief.
Despite the unpleasant hotel, we enjoyed the trip.

It’s a happening place.The Sunset, food, beach view from cliff are quite an experience.Beaches are well maintained.

Evening, we took ride to a nearby beach in our bike. Altogether,it was a fun weekend with lots of food and drinks.
