Extremely nice and peaceful beach. When I think of a beach I always imagine a place where I can chill, relax quietly, drink and listen to waves. Palolem offers exactly that. Unlike other beaches like candolim, gaga, etc. this is much less crowded. During off season also it is the best place to visit, if rain is not too much.... More

Not so anymore, as there are too many guides, shacks and taxi drivers. One of Goa's perennial problems have been the unruly taxi drivers who have started exerting their dominion in this little jewel... More

Take a cab ride to this wonderful beach at the set of dawn and you will remember it for a lifetime. Take the small boats to see the island in the middle of the sea and watch Dolphins do their dance.
