Dona Paula beach was the worst beach among all of the North Goan beaches we visited. It was not actually a beach, it is all about a raised platform built over the coast and provides a view of the sea. It was so terrible that we cancelled our plans of visiting South Goan beaches as they were far away and... More

Nothing great about this place. Its just a tourist attraction. You should visit during the evening time so that scorching sunlight does not take away the color of your skin.

To reach the place, you need to walk for around 300 to 400 mtrs from the main parking place... The place gives a very scenic view from the hill top overlooking the Arabian Sea and the Panji Water...

Place has gained much name after Singham shooting ;) Though from my visit I can only say: very heavily crowded, street market, said you have water sports there but I didn't find any. Only decent thing this place has to offer is top level view of vicinity. You can climb up the stairs and take good selfies ;)

we got time for an evening visit to the jetty. its looks great in evening all shops are closed in evening and few peoples are in that place. so no crowd...silky air and view is good...you can spend few hours on the jetty. as the road to the place is under construction and be careful.

This is a good beach in the vicinity of Panjim city...although it is not as great beach as the other beaches of Goa but still worth a visit if you want a nice and quiet place during the sunset...enjoy.
