It is not a beach. Only a small Hill and a small view point above it. Jet ski and boating can be done but water is still so not much fun. Good for sunset view only.

During my visit to Goa, had plans to capture sunset at Dona Paula beach. But the tourist crowd was too much and the sunset was not very exciting with large groups of people around the spot. Suggest visit during off peak seasons.

Good place, really overcrowded as some Bollywood movies have been shot at this location.. I know about 'Singham' only. Small flee market and local eateries at this location. Tourists looking for serene, peaceful holiday should not visit. Better/natural beauty and sunsets can be found at beaches. Point to note: It is not a beach to swim or laze around, its... More

Dona Paula is not a beach actually but a view point with many restaurants and shops lining this place. At times it gets crowded by the vehicles and the vendors. It gives a good view of the Zuari and Mandovi river fronts and the monument of lovers..

This is a lovely beach though crowded. It is near Panaji and you can plan for a sunset visit. The parking is a long distance away. You can see the two rivers meeting he sea.
