From Madurai we took an all-night train to the beach town of Varkala, in the state of Kerala, on the west coast of India. There's not much in Varkala except a beautiful stretch of beach - and unfortunately the place is teeming with backpackers. A short walk out of town you leave the tourist scene behind and come to some beautiful fishing villages along the coast. Here are some fishermen laying their nets out to dry.
