Relax on the scenic sands of Varkala Beach, noted for having the only cliff on the Arabian seaside and boasting natural mineral springs. Take a dip in the clean, blue water--which according to local beliefs washes away all sins--sunbathe, or take a peaceful stroll along the sand. Climb the steps to the top of the cliff, which features a paved, coconut palm-fringed road, to enjoy a picturesque view of the beach.
