There was a lot of rubbish in and around the beach area. Local families having picnics and leaving their rubbish behind. It was a shame as it really spoilt the area. Car park needed cleaning up as again let down the whole area.

If you party and love water sports, this is the best place. Moderately crowded, lots of eating and shopping options. Amazing opportunities for water sports. Can be visited with family & friends.

Colva is the closest happening beach from Varca, offering wide range of mouth watering sea foods. You will have good number of beach games options here

This beach can be busy at weekends but quiets down if you're prepared to walk 2 minutes from the main area where the boats run from. Gorgeous sunset and superb shack called Sandpat to keep you fed and watered. Tuk Tuk, bus and taxi stand as you walk over the footbridge into town with plenty of shops and bars.

Terribly crowded beach. You won't find peace here at all. People would be scrambling trying to sell you stuff or making you try the water sports.
