  • the staff was very rude because we had cameras with us even though we weren't using it. But the view is stunning. It's beautiful over there, see the water and be on top of all those palm trees  more »
  • From Varkala beach about 4km away with great views plus nearby old fort from colonial times. Can climb up for impressive views  more »
