Though a little crowded beach when compared with the more secluded Betalbatim beach, this beach has some of the best water sports in South Goa. Whether it is boating, motor boat, para sailing etc., Also you can take the motor boat (@ Rs 300 per head) and try 'Dolphin Sighting' and in case Dolphin Sighting doesnt happen, they show the...

If you want peace of life, be there to experience it. Really complimented with nice restaurants around. The sand is very fine, so it wont cause trouble for your bare feet, at the same time the hawkers and other parts are less; hence a complete serenity !!
