South India is never really cool, but pleasantly warm in winter. So, tourists usually visit Varkala beach during the month of October, as it is cool and secluded. Varkala is 54 km from Thiruvananthapuram and 37 km from Kollam.
Varkala beach is famous for mineral springs and a fantastic massage, so
don't forget to bring aromatherapy massage oil and sun protection. The
mineral springs here are said to have curative properties. The massage
technique has been a closely guarded secret for thousands of years, but for
many tourists it's a welcome revival from the toils of the road.
