There is a noticeable increase in Wild Dogs, dog fouling & litter on the beach which is sad. I did notice people clearing litter but in what I'd call a half hearted manner : Shame about the huge increase in the dogs though

Wide selection of beach huts all doing the same job, I wished that smokers didn't use the sand as an ashtray!! Then again smokes really can be filthy people,, but the beach hut boys could help clean there patch of the beach..??

We spent several days of our Xmas vacation hanging out on the beach and building monumental sandcastles with our kids. Apparently sandcastles are not a national pastime as we had scores of local taking selfies with our edifice!

What more can you ask for than swim in the balmy waters of the Arabian Sea. A clean beach almost for you alone. Plent of nice little restaurants along the beachfront and the possibility for endless walks along the seashore. Perfectly safe. Goa, i will definetly be back in the not too distant future.

This beach is right next to Colva but not many tourists know of it. It is an absolute beauty. The water the beach is absolutely clean. You wont find many crowds here. the resorts are right on the beach. A great place to spend a day in peace, reading a book on a lounge chair. Mind you since these resorts... More

Clean stretch of beach with some decent shacks. Try Johncy's for the food. Beach looks even more beautiful when the sky has white puffy clouds. Cleaner waters than North Goa. Lifeguards around for tourist safety. Awesome for an early morning walk. Worth visiting with family.
