Hi all,
I'm planning a honeymoon trip to Varkala for five days, sometime in mid July 2012 (second or third week). Is that a good time to visit Varkala?

1. I'm ok with rain for a few days, but is it likely to rain continuously for a week, for instance?

2. Off-season is great because there will be fewer crowds. But what are the cons? Will most shops be closed? Can we take long walks on the beaches or is that not advisable during monsoon?

Any tips or suggestions will be appreciated

Thanks!

It will be raining on and off, not continuously.
Walks along the beach are fine, but you won't be able to swim
in the sea, as it's too rough. Most shops are open. Good luck...

Niranjan - it will be great unless you don't plan to travel around a lot

18dummy - first week of June is the onset of southwest monsoons in Kerala. Of course it is unpredictable; can be a week early or later. But before the monsoon it can get very humid and sticky... Personally I think monsoon is the best time in Kerala

Thanks for the reply! I'm assuming you meant it will be great unless I plan to travel around a lot. Apparently Varkala has a lot of nice long walks (an hour or so), that is pretty much all we would want to do...
