Beach is cleaner than north beaches of Goa and less crowded. Good for family tourist. Vegetarian food easily available at Sagar Kinara restaurant. Local buses connect to Madgaon market and city every 15 mins from 6.45 am in morning till 7.00 pm at night.

It has really long stretch on and you can take long walk and find peaceful spot. On public points they have life guard to alert you about spots and depth to avoid.

If this is your first visit to south goa the white sand will take you by surprise. Its clean and has lot of shops and restaurants next to the parking lot. Its a nice beach to walk around although it gets a lot of tourish influx copared to varca beach.

Beach is not well maintained, limited restaurant s. Kentuckee s the best place to eat n drink. No attractions nearby for new travellers, best for lazing around.
