Nice little stretch of beach, without the madness of Baga. A relatively quieter place with not much buzz and activity. Early mornings are usually very busy with fishing activity by local fisherman who unload their catch of the day!

Found this beach to be nice and clean. Nice parking area for cars. Lot of options to have a quick bite as well. Can take a long walk on the beach without any issues or worries. Lot of properties around the beach to stay. Overall, a good beach to see and spend time in South Goa.

If you compare it to other beaches in the north, Colva is a pretty nice beach with nice staying options and less crowd. Having said that, this place is also full of dogs and crows and is not really the cleanest of the beaches.

The best part is the clear waters of the this beach. The entire family had a nice time both at the beach and around it.

I loved this beach of Goa. This is a clean beach. and less crowded compared to the beaches of north Goa. it has many good restaurants around it. you can enjoy good food and wine with great view of Arabian sea. if you go to the beach at evening, don't forget to try Pinto's Goan Swarma Roll at the beach....

Nice beach cleanliness is not so bad always crowded but full of fun. Enjoy some water and adventure sports. Lots of good/affordable hotels and restuarnats are nearby. Try to enjoy sea facing dinner at night.

Since this is a public beach, as expected it is crowded and noisy. Though the water sports like water scooter, para sailing are available here and the rates are also competitive; there are lot of chaos as many teams are managing the events. The beach is not very clean either, it looks always congested and over crowded in the afternoon.... More
