This is amongst the most visited beach in the South Goa. we get to explore several options for water sports such as parasailing, jet skiing, speed boating etc There are several shops for doing a quick shopping and several nice restaurants restaurants around that place. I found the food and drinks served on the beach shacks a bit pricey.

It has nice white sands & is quite picturesque...but has lots of crowds. Lifeguards etc are there....its good for a stroll, but many nearby beaches are better.

A great beach to walk. Can go every evening for a stroll. A happening place. Can walk on the beach for hours and reach the other end of the sand baked beach. Can have relaxing drink. Sunset colours are great. A photography spot. Can hang on the beach and relax.

First thing you will have to know is that none of the at least 30 guys working for the beach staff is really able to speak English decently. I was very lucky because I was there with an Indian-native friend. We went for a dolphin watching ride at sunset, but we were told it was much better at dawn (though... More

Beach is clean and has got all water sports activities. The place is very peaceful. There is no much crowd. But if you are going during Christmas or new year than I would suggest to stay in North Goa because all the happening clubs are out there. But if you are going for an relaxed vacation then go for south... More

We had visited this beach in March 2015 as a part of our package stay at Holiday Inn Resort but found this one and a half hour drive from our hotel to visit this beach as absolutely useless. The beach's surroundings were dirty and stinking. The people selling water sports packages and restaurant owners were impolite and horrible particularly towards... More

Nice beach. Lifeguards on duty (well, maybe not to Aust standards), plenty of little huts for food & drinks. Activities such as para-sailing available.

This is the first beach we went to in Goa immediately once we stepped out of our bus. It's easy to reach and is quite clean. Water sports are available.
