Lovely beach with a robust night scene and ad hoc outdoor market that appears each evening. Lots of great places to eat and bunk.

Arambol is a place away from it all....Less crowded, serene and quite..... Not quite as awesome as we had expected it to be, there was no live music around as we had read in the reviews, the only difference was there were much less Indian people there, majority were foreigners. The sweet Lake was good for swimming. In all this... More

Beach is beautiful but was very crowded. TRP is fresh water lake. There is also a small market where there are eateries, shops selling apparels, sandals. If your idea of Goa is enjoying drinks in a peaceful shack, this one is for you.

Arambol beach is full of small shacks and huts to stay cheap. The beach itself is very clean and the area is great if you want to stay away from all the parties. Seems like most people staying here is families and people practicing yoga.

A beautiful beach with a sweet water lake. While driving to this beach, one can see the most amazing view along the coast.This is one long beach. Arambol is different because of the sweet-water lake. You need to take a 15 minute walk along the coast between vendors and shacks to reach this lake. Once you reach here, taking a... More

Many of the most popular beaches in Goa (Calangute, Baga, Anjuna etc) are overhyped and congested. Arambol is different. The distance (about 50 kms from Panjim) probably ensures that. Arambol is an altogether better beach. Cleaner water, cleaner sand, less crowded yet accessible and with major conveniences around.

The best place we stayed in Goa. Yoga, massages, live music, alternative style with the majority of visitors traveling and staying for a few months so the whole place has a very laid back feel. Jungle walks to the banyan tree, amazing sea swimming, parasailing, good choice of beach shacks many offering fresh fish prepared on the BBQ, nice for... More

Although it requires a good hour long walk, the beach has a point where there is beach on the left and fresh water pool on the right. A very nice place to swim or just chill out with a few drinks. A very nice spot
