Not a clean Beach

Not a great beach, over crowded and congested. Beaches must be visited in Goa, not this one if your planning to go to a beach.

Went for a dip in the sea somewhere in the evening around 6pm. Ventured little deep and felt like plastic bags hitting my legs, later noticed a slight pain developing, presence of mind said its jelly fish, came out immediately. Had stings on my lower legs and fingers.

This Beach is very poor beach without proper maintenance. Not enough light and security. No facility for changing dress or fresh water bath after swimming in sea. Lots of improvement need.
