Kerala - Varkala - The Malabar Coast

From Mumbai I flew to Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram), the capital of Kerala and from the airport I immediately travelled to Varkala located at the Malabar Coast.

I do not particularly like beach holidays but I spent two days (three nights) in Varkala because I found the coastline so beautiful. Varkala encouraged me to make beautiful and long walks along the red cliffs, the coconut palm forests, a lot of smaller, sometimes hidden beaches and fishing villages.

Info from Wikipedia:
The Malabar Coast is a very long coastline in the southwest of the Indian subcontinent.
It runs from the south of Goa over Karnataka and Kerala to the most southern tip of India: Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.

Throughout recorded history from about 3000 BC, the Malabar Coast had been a major trading center in commerce with Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Jerusalem and the Arab world.
Because of the orientation to the sea and to maritime commerce, the coastal cities of Malabar are very cosmopolitan and have hosted some of the first groups of Christians, Jews, and Muslims.
