the beach is lovely, with golden sands and calm waters which are shallow quite far out so you can swim a fair distance safely, also making it good for kids. There are a few dogs around which are not too much of a nuisance but keep an eye. The beach is generally clean and has many restaurants along it where... More

The perfect beach to spend some great time with your loved ones away from the city. Mostly visited by foreign tourists, its not very crowded. you can spend your days playing on the beach, sun bathing or taking a dip in the sea. Snorkeling and canyoning are the major activities.

Although not as busy as the more northerly beaches, you can still find better places to visit in South Goa.

I loved this beach and the atmosphere/vibes I got from it. Maybe it is not the best beach to go for a swim but it is lovely for a walk and go for drinks and see the sunset. There are many local places to have a drink facing the sun and the sea. I love the dogs wondering and begging... More

Clean beach. Very scenic. Kayaking, surfing, dolphin watching to be done here. Amazing dining scene on the beach. Give a feeling of one being on the Caribbean beaches.

This beach surrounded by land from 2 sides and one island in one side. In between that, it form a shallow(5-10 feet deep) swimming zone. This is beach not crowded like Colva beach. It has changing room facilities provided by government. Also, honeymoon island and butterfly island are nearby and can be reach by speedboat easily.
