The climate of Varkala (India)
Varkala lies in the federal state of Kerala. It is one of the few
places where the coast is dominated by high rock formations. Apart
from the overwhelming splendour of these rock formations this freak of
nature also caused that the small place has preserved a small-scale
and intimate character. Naturally hotels and restaurants were built
against the rocks, but everything is designedly small-scale and
because of that certainly has its charm. Besides beautiful nature the
place has also got some beautiful temples. The bell in one of them
comes from a Dutch ship that was shipwrecked here off the coast.
The climate in Varkala is a monsoon climate. This climate is
characterized by a distinct dry and a rainy period. Visitors of the
town do well to avoid the months of May up to and including October.
The most precipitation falls in this period. Due to its situation close
to the equator and on the sea the temperature remains rather constant
throughout the year.
