Many vendors come out at night selling various goods such as ice cream and snacks. There are plenty of restaurant choices within walking distance. Several... More

Good and calm beach located in the southern part of Goa. People who are nature loving and come down to south Goa and enjoy the calmness of the beaches there

this beach is right next to Benaulim beach but is so different to it. Colva is much more crowded and has a lot more shacks around it...there is a proper market-sort of set up right at the beach entry... there are watersports like para-sailing, banana ride etc available on this beach.

This beach is too good than a few in the North Goa. Clean Sand may be its not that congested like the calangute beach. Sports activities are available. You can sit and watch the sunset without any disturbance since this beach is the third longest beach in India

A lot of water sport activites take place in this beach including Para-sailing, Jet Ski etc. The are other beaches like Betalbatim, Benaulim or Varca, which are adjacent to Colva beach which are less crowded and much more quieter. Would not recommend this Beach on... More
