Visited Palolem beach with my family and spend 2 days around that place. The beach is a fisherman's beach that is the locals use that beach to take off their boats for fishing. If you like that kind of beach than this is the best - although it tends to be a bit smelly and one can see remains of... More

its the poorest beach i have ever been too because of the stink it provided, everyone could see the dead fish all around the sand area of the beach , we stayed only for ten minutes and came back, though drive from south goa to reach this beach was good that made the evening

This is a flattish and nice clean beach. If the tides are lower, you can cross over a stream and reach the rocky areas on the right end of the beach for some good photographs. Fishing can be seen in this beach. And because of leftover fish, we can witness kites diving and scooping the dead fish from the beach.

Palolem Beach is one of the clean and beautiful beach in Goa. Surrounded by Palm trees, situated in South Goa (Canacona)... this is the place where you can (definitely) hope to find clean water. The beach was not much crowded. Once we were done enjoying in the water, there were a lot of shacks available to relax. You can sit... More

This is an awesome Beach! It's clean, pristine, soft sand and you can go deep into the water as the bed is flat and walkable! This is where you can enjoy swimming/spending time in water! You will see lotsa dead fish on the shore. But don't fret too much about it.

This is one beach which I found quiet peaceful and has less people. It is very far away from Panaji. It is almost 70 kms from Panaji towards south (almost at the Goa border). The waters were also good, compared to other beaches in Goa. There are very few shops and one good restaurant to eat.

I have many times got an opportunity to visit this beach as its very close to my working area in coastal Karnataka. Unlike the beaches full of hustle bustle in north Goa this beach is calmer, cleaner and gives a very fresh feel. With almost negligent water sports in the area, this beach is more known for relaxation which is... More
