It one of the most beautiful, calm and serene beaches i have been to. We went there in low season, so there were even less people than there would have been. There are limited places to eat nearby, and not much choice for accomodation either. But the beach is so worth it. Definitely a must see place on your visit... More

It is a natural bay surrounded by rocky headlands on either side. This results in a calm, idyllic sea with a gently sloping bed that allows you to walk up to 100 m... More

Dropadi restaurant there has the best cuisine! The beach isn't as rough as Agonda and there is plenty of water sports.

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.
