If you visit here on a weekend, you will probably spend more time searching for your family and friends than enjoying the sea! Too crowded, too noisy. Minus the crowd, the beach is nice.

We stayed at soul vacation & spa resort, 500 to 700 metres away from colva beach in South Goa. The beach is very clean & pleasant. Evening walk by the beach is one of the best memories we made. Due to monsoon, shacks are not open. But there are a number of good restaurants near the beach.

It might have been great if the beach was kept clean. But, the beach is long stretched and beautiful. You will find plenty of liquor shops around the area. After all its goa!

This is one of the calm beaches in South Goa, not so crowdy . They do have water sports on the beach , price for this is same as you will find in Baga beach in North Goa.Hotel Colva Kinara is near this beach around 300m and a good place to stay

One of the better beaches of south Goa. Famous for its white and fine sands. Located around 5 kms from Margao. Some nice Nightclubs are also located nearby.

Once you are planning to Goa; please don't exclude this beautiful beach from your itenary eventhough it is rainy season. Coz we visited during heavy down pour. Still the beach had good crowd. We did go for a rainy shopping too.

We were there at Longhuinos beach resort at Colva for a couple of days during June 2016 when it was raining all through. Cola beach is nice but unfortunately it was not beach time when we visited. However, since we were fond of monsoon, we enjoyed as well. It is not good for swimming since there is current and local... More

Colva beach is exactly like Baga or Calangute but only in the south. Crowded, expensive but happening. Plenty of Shops and bars and restaurants are nearby. Beach and the water is a bit dirtier than the other south Goa beaches.
