Place without proper maintenence

This actually is a very good place as such but very much not looked after and hence not clean, the water being black rather than clear

Beautiful part of goa, surrounded by palms and the glittering sea, let down by huge amount of rubbish and debris both on the sands and water / not place to paddle barefoot and looked too filthy to swim - shame as the headland means the water is sheltered from the rolling waves. Usual collection of stalls selling tourist gear, and... More

Probably the one of the worst beach of Goa. The place is known for base station for Boat trips Only nothing else. Small flee market along the beach, very dirty, single lane road access & smelly like fish house.

If you want to go see Dolphins, this is the beach you would go to for the boats to see them. Other than that.. Not worth it.

To see the Dolphins, its advised to reach there as early as possible. Tours start around 8:30 AM onwards, as that's when the Dolphins would be in abundance. If you go any later than 11 am, then you may not be able to see Dolphins and may not like the heat. Boats would be small and charge around INR 300... More

Calm waters but unfortunately the dolphin trips and fishermen have ruined this place which once used to have many beach shacks,only one remains now owned by Dominic and named after his daughters. Regulars still come as I said mainly because of the still waters ;perhaps one day someone will realize what they could actually achieve here and bring more tourist... More

After a snorkeling trip our boat driver took us here to have some food by the beach. Out of all the beaches I had been to in India this was the least looked after. There was rubbish everywhere and the water was almost black. However from what I understand this beach was hit by a tsunami and has not recovered... More

Not a good option to take small boats which have capacity of 10 odd people. Forget sighting of dolphins, the drivers take the boat bit far into sea n it starts swaying little strongly scaring hell out of those in the boat. No safety precautions followed by organizers. Pls take those big boats that can take 30-40 ppl which is... More
