Never a dull moment at this beach - lots of locals frequent Colva Beach, fishing villages are along the beach area where you can watch them rolling boats out or back from the Arabian Sea.

This is typical tourist place with lots of people around. Shopkeepers selling food, snacks etc. If one has to really enjoy beach then recommended explore and to go little interior places for clean and virgin beaches.

This is more of a city beach of madgao than the typical goa shack and sun bathing beaches. Its more of a crowded family city beach

Colva is one of the finest beaches in Goa. It has shallow waters, life guard support, which is not something you see in many beaches in India, and has shacks on the beach that serve great food and drink at affordable prices. One also has options of water-sports like para-sailing and jet boats here.

The beach is good..but somewhat crowded during evening..but one can always give a try to have a candlelight dinner in the beach-side restaurants.

It dose not matter where you go here on the beach. Stay at colva or walk either way along this beach you cant go wrong. Though Colva its self is more busy with more going on on the beach its all a beautiful sandy beach for miles each way. This has to rate among the best beaches on the planet.
