I visit Goa atleast twice a year... And this time we decided to stay at Arambol beach hut. This is by far the best beach of Goa. It is extreme north. 30 mins drive from the party crowd of Bagha-Anjuna. (We used to drive to that area for evening/night market/dinner/parties). Everyday morning you just wake up and sit in the...

This was my second time to this beach on 14th March...the first one in Jan'11. As March is relatively off-season the beach I found only a few people on the beach mainly foreigners enjoying in their own way...some were playing musical instruments , some doing Yoga and some doing surfing. Beach was quite clean. As it's hot in Goa this... More

Arambol situated in North Goa is one of the better beaches of Goa.It is quiet & scenic one surrounded by trees.This serene beach on the day of my visit was to my annoyance crowded with foreign tourists lining the beach with stalls selling their various items of clothing,curios & food under cutting the price of the local stall owners.They had...

Its almost 1 hour journey from Anjuna to Arambol but an amazing beach. We reached by 9 AM in the morning and there were hardly 10 people on the beach. Very peaceful and serene beach. We walked across the mountains to reach Kalacha beach with sweet water lake. Amazing to have a beach between Sea and a sweet Lake. The... More

Amazing atmosphere, the sunset there is magical and heavinly, for me I was there for the day time and night time, both were amazing. About the restaurants there, you have plenty of choices, for me I spent most of my visits in blue pyramid.

Lovely place to chill, if you walk further round the cliff you will find another beach with the sweet water lake. Worth a visit!

Now it is my one of the favourite beaches in Goa. This was my first visit to Arambol and I completely loved it. Crowd was adequate and beach was relatively quieter compared to Candolim. I loved Shacks over there as most of the shacks had lower sitting where you can just lie down and chill. Worth visiting beach.

Extremely disappointing. Filled with people very crowded. becomes a bazaar at night with people selling wares in the middle of the beach. drunk Indian men gawking at women, vendors and hawkers bothering you every minute of the day. Beach itself was okay, extremely dirty. nothing great.
