The local town of Varkala is located around the train station, 5 Km from the beaches. The tourist area is along the two cliffs, North and South, in between them is the main beach, Papanasham.
The tourist season starts in December and lasts till the end of March. From December the 15th to January the 15th is the top season, when reserving ahead may be necessary. During the low season some resorts close their doors, and Varkala becomes even more laid back.
