Isolated beach

The good thing about Palolem beach is that it's way isolated from the touristy Goa. Especially in the off season, it's very secluded.

The beach though not very secluded, is quite pretty. Probably because we went during the monsoon, which is typically considered off season, the beach wasn't crowded at all. Pack a picnic basket, grab a book to read/sketch and head to the beach. Hours and hours will pass by in a blink!

Been to this pristine beach twice, and spent 2 nights during my last visit. In my 20+ visits to Goa, I rate this as the best beach in Goa, followed by Ashwem. At a very short walk from the southern end of the beach, there is a isolated private rock island which can be accessed during low tides. Amazing views... More

You can catch boat and go to butterfly island which is just nearby, also along with that you can see the dolphins while travelling. The water level in palolem beach is... More

we played some ball games on the beach and swam at different times of the day. It was good that we didn't have any sellers come and nag us to buy anything.

The beach is not popular among Indians but it is a lovely beach. A trip to butterfly beach is great experience.

I am a Goan, I live here. Yet what makes me say such a statement? It's not as if Goa doesn't have enough beaches or other beautiful sights. I guess it's the sense of unhurried calm this place brings even in a fairly relaxed place like Goa. Be it the service in the restaurants, the scenic beauty of the beach,... More
