About the campsite
Varkala is a coastal hamlet located at the outskirts of Trivandrum. With gorgeous cliff beaches & vibrant night life Varkala is fast becoming a must visit destination. Dotted by interesting cafes, seaside cliff view pubs, eateries, ayurvedic spas & a buzzing flea market, Varkala is fast becoming mini Goa. Sunset from quaint cafes', an after evening walk along the cliff & visit to the beaches are some of the must dos while in varkala.

This varkala experience has been designed in such a way that you get to experience almost all this beautiful town has to offer while you camp in a tiny, yet beautiful surfing school located just beside the beach. What's more you also get to visit Jatayu earth center, Thenmala dam etc. and also indulge in backwater kayaking & waterfalls dips.

Varkala has always been a priority in my to-visit list for a long time now . And I must say it was an wonderful experience with the Exotic team!! It was an completely hassle free and super friendly trip with the team . You can blindly trust for your future trips!! Travellers (must say even solo women-travellers) can just book through them for a safe and memorable trip!
