Wake up and see how, for hundreds of years the fishermen have been fishing from outside of your room it hasn't changed. The very name Kerala literally translated means The land of Coconuts. Keralas terrain is covered with coconut palms from one end to the other. Compared to other prominent beaches, Varkala is fortunate in that it is a little less crowded, has fewer shops and beach sellers and still remains relatively un- commercialised. Here one could swim, play volley ball and practice yoga. Wedged between the Western Ghats on the East and the Arabian Sea on the West, the narrow strip of land known as Kerala is a destination of a lifetime. The timeless beauty of the palm fringed beaches of Varkala and Kovalam the majesty of the undulating hills of Munnar and Ooty, the serenity of the pristine backwaters of Kumarakom & Kuttanad and the enchanting woods and forests of Thekkady and Silent Valley will have you bowled over. That such a small terrain can hold diverse geographical features and cultures is a wonder in itself.
