The beach is dead with a few shacks and lots of dogs. As dirty as the beach looks i heard the water quality is the best in Goa with calm waves

Nearby places to visit include the Sweet Water Lake, Hot Plate Cafe and you will find some shopping and essential items nearby. The beach is mostly crowded... More

I loved it during monsoons... I can guarantee you, it will be one of the most happening beaches during December. Must visit if you are in Goa.

Wherever we asked for the directions, people were surprised and said it's a long way, though it is around 50 km from the airport.. It took around 4 hours for... More

I was mesmerised when I visited Arambol a few years back, we did go all the way but none of the shacks were open and we had to go to some other place for lunch.

when i visited this place, this beach caught my eye, with it being different among the others. it has a sweet water lake right on the beach. its at a walking distance from the main road, and you'll find people getting sun-kissed, and some trying to get a richer skin tone covering themselves up in Fuller's earth and then bathing...

One of the Northenmost Beaches in Goa. The small town is a main road that leads to the beach and has several daily needs shops, a few places to stay and cyber cafes. The beach is mostly crowded with Russians who stay there for months. Like all other beaches, Arambol has a number of good shacks and cafes with cheap... More

Watched the sunset & enjoyed some great quality food & fun. If you love partying, go during main season (Winter Time) or else visit just before monsoons (off-season) to just chillax!
