Hi All, This is a great attraction point in Goa. You can easily reach here by renting a scooter, car or other vehicle. Also this is located at only 6 KM distance from Madgaon Railway station. At beach you can enjoy water games, great restaurants to dine. You must visit here.

Beach was great but felt like lot of people are now moving to beaches in the south of goa. There are way to many shacks and make sure to check Tripadvisor for the best shacks around.
