Today we had a long day at the beach, starting around 11 (Sea Splendor’s breakfast muesli is great, but they sure aren’t fast preparing it). Sunbathing, swimming and reading iPad until it overheated in the sun. We enjoyed yet another sunset and decided it was due time to leave the beach.
We went in to Varkala Cliff after refreshing, which had much more restaurants but also bouncers and hawkers. Prices weren’t that bad but it reconfirmed our luck with finding Odayam beach (not mentioned in Lonely Planet, how about that?). After eating and using some Internet we headed back, unfortunately the Riksha-drivers went to bed early so we walked for some 20 minutes at least before a driver picked up us and took us home to First Place.
