Good Place to visit and clean Beach

Hand and amazing experience visiting the beach! Unlike the beaches in North Goa, this was pretty quiet and relaxing with less/hardly any crowd and clean sea water & Beach!

Clean n clear waters, peaceful due to less crowd, evening by d sunset is simply amazing, rush to a nearby shack for a quick drink/grab a bite, sea sports in the mornings is a must do...kids enjoy to the fullest...economical n relaxing...

A large concrete roundabout marks the end of the beach road and the entrance to the beach, filled with day-trippers, package tourists and many hawkers. The main beach drag is lined with some dull beach side stalls and average cafes. Travel a little way north or south, though, and you’ll find some of the peace missing in central Colva.

Little crowded but Overall clean. Not ideal if you are looking for some solitude or private time. Bus options available to Margao On the way you get to see the magnificent Colva Church. Architecture of the church is amazing.

Not maintained well, too many buses and tourist cars are always there,also, there are two bridges which makes the way to the beach but after crossing the bridge there is a dirty water puddle which you have to cross by going inside the water and the water seems extremely dirty..n children were playing inside the puddle, but you can go...

Was there recently. The beach is beautiful, very clean. Waves are calm. Since I visited during off season, no water sports activities were on. Also no beach shacks were operating.
