The title of this post is referring to the accident that happened with us during the para-sailing. It's difficult to give rating ... as the beach is good but what happened with us ruined it for us. So giving it a neutral rating! My wife and I went to Goa on a luxury trip in Feb 2015 during the Goa... More

Very quiet and only for family. No activities here. Would ideally have preferred a few more restaurants at the least.

This beach is not for those who seek peace. Families and thousands of people around you, not so good atmosphere and an air of disgust fills you when you look at the garbage accumulated on the beach thanks to the extensive tourism in this part of goa.

We were staying close to Candolim Beach and really enjoyed the cleanliness and quietness that this beach offers. As in other beaches in Goa, there are numerous shacks where one can dine and drink, albeit at a slightly more leisurely pace.

This beach is not so crowded as Baga. Clean brown Sand,big waves,good crowd makes this beach a safe bet. Good Shacks on the beach with music and sunbed make it a truly relaxing experience

Don't get me wrong, Candolim is a great beach, well-maintained with plenty to do; however, I've definitely seen more beautiful beaches. I would suggest South Goa if you're really looking for paradise!
