I visited a few beaches in Goa and daresay that Colva Beach is amongst one of the best beaches. Water activities there are cheap, paragliding only cost IDR1000.00 as opposed to some beaches that charge, IDR 1800.00. Sunset view is amazing and it is also a clean beach.

This is one of the longest beaches in Goa wit very loose layer of sand, very nice for Dolphin drive, associated with many other remarkable places, such as Central jail on sea bank and fort, Very crowded and enjoyed Dolphin drive. Good market for purchasing various items.....

I have been coming to colva since I was 9 years old. Love this beach as it is quite and all the shacks have amazing service. If you want to do water sports or shop then come to the main beach and when you want to get away from the crowd then just walk a little and you will find... More

Colva is a great beach for families. It is safe, relatively clean and great food joints all around. You can venture out late in the night and early morning too, no reason to fear at all. And the water sports at the beach are evenly priced and the locals very helpful and sweet.

Unfortunately, the beach is a disgrace. Full of litter and over run with dogs. From the main Colva road onto the beach is the main disappointment. Years of disregarded trash, we counted 18 dogs just in front of us, which where continuously mating, yelping, stuck together etc. Not what you want to see. If your able to walk a while... More

White sand and clean; two things that catch your eye. It can get crowded at times but as you move away from the main entry point, it gets better. Good beach for going into the water; lifeguards on duty at the beach.
