First thing I will suggest is to do kayaking if you like. Its fun kayaking in the sea due to waves. Second is visit the butterfly island spend quality time with family, friends or couples. They charge for butterfly island ride in boat. If you are well with kayaking, dont pay to see dolphin, take the kayak for about 300... More

The setting is perfect with lots of coconut trees on a curved shape beach with spliting mountains in the water. Something out of a travelers magazine. Beach perfect size of sand space. Lots of good food hotels at cheap prices. Boating, water rides and fun. Very nice people. Cons: Indians are very push and annoying while walking enjoying the peace.... More

Palolem Beach is at Canacona,South Goa. There is no much water sport activity. Many Restaurants opened on the beach side and many shacks . Best time to visit in the morning or in the evening. There are few attractions near by monkey island , Butterfly island & honeymoon island. But this is highly populated with foreigners.

It is silent beach with very few shacks. We went during monsoons and so could go to butterfly island. People who want to have a serene and quite holiday this is place. In the evening you get to see fishermen's catch. Good place to be

Palolem is our second favorite beach in Goa. Agonda would be #1. Palolem has a variety of eateries, clean waters and a fabulous sunset.. Even on a crowded day, it's not too crowded.

Its probably the most beautiful beach of Goa. Surrounded by beautiful mountains on three sides and clean water. There are not much water sport activities but we liked it cause probably that made it less crowded and more peaceful
