How To Reach Varkala, Kerala?

Via Air Route: The closest airport from Varkala is in Thiruvananthapuram, the Trivandrum International Airport. The airport is about 45 km away from this beach town and is well connected to all major cities across India and the globe. Once you land at the airport, you can hire a taxi cab at the airport or take a bus to KSRTC bus stand and ride a bus from there. 

Via Rail Route: Varkala lies somewhere on the train route from Thiruvananthapuram to Ernakulam and can be reached by the train that makes a stop at the Varkala Railway station. The Thiruvananthapuram rail route is connected to all major cities of India. 

Via Road Route: We recommend keeping the road route as the last option if you are taking the bus. Even though KSRTC buses ply regularly between Kochi to Thiruvananthapuram, there is no direct bus to Varkala. You can take a bus from Kochi to Attingal and then take another bus from Attingal to Varkala.
