“The 2nd best in Goa after Baga beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

This is a gem of a beach that is on the same line as Calangute and Baga beaches but not as crowded as those. The best beach to relax and chill out with a beer and a good read. Once the location of Sunburn festival, it has recently started hosting the VH1 Supersonic festival. Some water sports can be availed here during the season time but Baga is a better choice for water sports. By the evenings the beach is completely empty and it is so relaxing to lay on the sand and just hear the water splash on the beach.

A must visit if once craves some relaxing time away from the crowded hustle and bustle of other north Goa beaches.

“Oil spill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Oil as far as I could see and the lifeguard likes to drive through it to spread it to the unaffected areas.

“Crowded Beach!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Very crowded beach. Not very clean. Should be visited only if extra time is left. The shack owners chase you till you are not frustrated.

“Nice beach, shame about the hawkers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This beach has loads of shacks for eating and drinking, none of which are over priced, it's all very pretty with lots of watersports. The beach itself is extremely long, there are beds everywhere, the only really big drawback is the sheer number of hawkers - they are everywhere, they don't seem to understand that you might not want a massage, or cheap jewellery or anything else they might be offering. They just don't leave you alone, from the minute you walk onto the beach to the minute you leave. There are also a huge number of child beggars which is unsettling, but goes with the territory. You find yourself becoming more and more assertive after the 30th hawker.
