Palolem is one of the most beautiful Goan beach. It is a natural bay surrounded by lofty 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 out from the beach. Palolem Beach is long beach, filled with rooms and huts and restaurants, sometimes with... More

Palolem Beach - at the Southern End of Goa, about 30 kms from Airport, 65 kms from Candolim is one of the calmest beaches in Goa.. Has got good variety of food shacks..There are also Dolphin rides..

The beach is really beautiful. The sands and water complement each other. It isn't much crowded as well, hence better and cleaner than other mainstream beaches of Goa. The food is also very delicious and amazing at the shacks. This beach is to sit back, relax and enjoy the sun. Water sports also add up to the experience.

Beautiful beach. Heaps of boatmen to take out you out into the Arabian Sea. Dolphins sightseeing a must. Also a river cruise just south of the beach is a nice relaxing ride. Our boatman, Vincent threw food into the river to encourage the eagles. What a sight & sound show. We even saw a huge Sea Eagle swoop by for... More

This beach is awesome. It's so chill and beautiful. There are restaurants that line the beach and the water is so nice. At the end of the beach there are beautiful rocks that make a fantastic place to sit and watch the sunset or the stars at night. :)

If you love quiet travel, and enjoy beaches, this has to be it. Maybe not the festival season, but rest of the times, the best place to be.

One of the best beached in Goa with a long sandy stretch. The beach is peaceful with clear water with lots to offer for activities. You can sun bath, take a dip in the sea, snorkel or do canyoning. There are a number of affordable cottages and the food is really nice. Definitely a must visit in Goa.
