The beach at chowara is a mess and it was sad to see that in gods own country the people of the area did nothing to clean up. It has so much potential

This is a long white sandy beach where you can see lines of fishermen pulling in their nets. You can see gorgeous sunsets. It is clean and undeveloped unlike the nearby Kovalam beaches.

It's difficult to rate Chowara beach as parts of it (the parts outside of the hotels) are very clean and lovely. Other parts are an environmental nightmare with discarded plastics and other litter. The beaches in Goa were definitely cleaner.

The calm and isolated location and the scenic setting makes the Chowara beach an excellent place to visit. Not at all commercialised.

This is one of the best beaches. Surprisingly it was very clean when I went. This beach has also many resorts near by. If you could stay in one of the sea side view ones then I guarantee you it will a experience of your life time.
