“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Just think about it. How many times have you caught yourself unconsciously day-dreaming about sun, sand and serenity? Those dreary days at work seem so much more bearable when you have the cushion of a special memory to support you.

The enchantment of the sea transcends mere reason. It is an emotion, a state of mind, a profound feeling that is unlike anything else in the world. Like they say, happiness comes in waves. And so, when the beach comes calling, we must answer!

Take a look at these 6 destinations that will have you living in the sunshine, swimming in the sea and drinking in the wild air.

Varkala Beach – Kerala

Varkala Beach - Beaches in India

Quaint, tranquil and balmy Varkala Beach is the laid-back alternative to bustling Kovalam. It marks the point at which Kerala’s jagged cliffs meet the animated Arabian Sea. The exquisite coming together of land and water; nature’s soulful symphony. The top of the cliff is paved by a winding stretch of road that is dotted with charming boutiques and shacks, offering cute little handicrafts and tasty snacks. The bottom of the cliff is a vast expanse of soft-gold beach that is ideal for taking long strolls, stretching across the warm sand and splashing against the cool aqua. Cosy up on one of the beach chairs and sip a Pina Colada as you watch the sun melt into a pool of gooey orange. You’ll also discover plenty of places that specialize in Yoga and Ayurvedic treatments if you’re craving a little ‘me time’. Furthermore, the spring from the southern cliff is believed to have medicinal properties. Do check that out!

Sparkly-sapphire waters stretch animatedly, as far as the eye can see. A melange of locals and foreigners thrive and flourish, simultaneously. From Yoga to Ayurveda, dolphin spotting to silent disco techs, Palolem’s offerings vary like the shades of blue.
