    I LOVED Varkala. Loved, loved, loved. I stayed at the far end, a little ways away from all the action. My husband and I found a little hut (next door to the Lotus Cafe) with its own little garden, and we were about 20 feet away from a cliff with this breathtaking view. Really enjoyed our time there. I think it was the most beautiful beach I visited in India, and I enjoyed the pace of things there. It was cool to watch all the paragliding from people up on the cliffs, and they have all the amenities and things a tourist/traveller could like but it wasn't overkill. I had some great ayurvedic treatments done there and felt the whole place to be really relaxing.

    Alleppey (backwaters) was also really cool. We opted for a day of riding around on the public fairy instead of a houseboat (we were at the end of our trip and running out of money, also a bit concerned about the environmental impact I'd read about). I hear the houseboats are incredible though. Some of our best meals of 2 months travelling through India were at a place called "Halai's." Their biryani is to die for, and it's great for people-watching. Alleppey was also a good place to pick up any fabrics/clothing if you're thinking of purchasing a salwaar or a'll see a million people walking around with a bag from a store in particular.

    I wish I'd had more time to hit up Munnar and Kochi.

    Experience the stay of houseboats in kerla. The backwaters of Allaphuza is simply a treat as mentioned by others. Ayurvedic massage & beautiful sun-set view should not be missed at Kolam.. Take a bicycling trip from Munnar to Perriyar. The journey is a visual treat :)

    As others have mentioned, Varkala is an excellent location. I can't remember the exact name of the place I stayed, but it was away from the main tourist village of Varkala along some cliffs (I got the recommendation for that accommodation in Rough Guides). Varkala is so relaxing and beautiful...highly recommended.

    Another cool place in Varkala is Munnar. It is set within the mountains and is famous for its tea fields and exotic spice plantations.
