It is not worth visiting. No amazing view, meaningless visiting destination. 1 or 2 water activity. You have to walk almost a km from the bus stand. Cars are allowed to go to beyond bus stand only. Not recommended for the sake of saving time in Goa.

This place is just a big expanse of glaring white with no shade. Really uncomfortable during sunny days. Take umbrella sun glasses. If you have kids then never go before 6 PM in summer.

Dona Paula is famous among tourists. However, there is nothing much to do here. If you are short in time, you can avoid this place.

This place is okay for a visit if one has some time in one's hands. Fairly close to Panjim, good place to view the sunset. But rather crowded and chaotic with all kinds of stalls etc. Not a 'must see'.

Lovely setting but dowdy and rundown. Bit dirty but worth a walk. Lots of stalls and views across the water. There is a viewing platform to see the sunset. We had a walk up and the views are good. Just needs some TLC including a lick of paint and a clean up. Quite a lot of people there.

The most scenic location in Goa. Reminds me very much of Bali. Very similar. Romantic and breathtaking views. Very nice to watch the setting sun from here.

This beach is located very close to the capital of Goa, Panaji. Highly crowded tourist place with small eating stalls and water sports and boating facilities. Parking is available on the road side.
