The beach is against a cliff. There is a flea market at the entrance. Beautiful and serene beach. Then you walk down the rocks and few stairs then you are at the beach. We spent around hours wandering at the beach. You can read more in my blog- http://snigdhamajumdar.blogspot.in/2014/08/goa-and-monsoon.html

This is a less crowded beach and peaceful compared to the other famous beaches around. I make it a point to spend some time on this beach every time I visit Goa. The water is also much better for a swim. Its good to spend until evening here. It gets very dark as its not lit up as Baga. But... More

Don't miss to visit this beach. Sea waves, white water on rocks..scenic place. Feel like sea is dancing on rocks...cool breeze especially in rainy season. Simply wow. Location was good but there is not much restaurants.

This rocky beach is nice and peaceful. Mostly visitors, but it doesn't have shacks, so mostly no drunk groups. The small market has some interesting tit-bits.

Visit the beach at the time Sunset, I guarantee you will have a time of your life. There are rocks inside the sea water, where u are not supposed to climb up, though you will enjoy the view from outside as well. During Sunset, the light in both water and rock simply creates a Utopian environment.
