Hidden gem in South Goa. Its little difficult to get there, but once you are there the beauty will help you in getting rid of all the tiredness. The lagoon type setting is mesmerising. This place is different from all the other beaches in Goa.

Well this small stretch of the Cola beach is called Secret beach coz of two main reasons. It stretches across just about 300 mtrs between two small hills attached with a small beautiful natural lagoon and just 2 small boutique hotels. While it's accessible but the last 1km stretch is bad road or hardly a road. If u have a bike then u might find it a bit challenging it may have to walk a bit to avoid damage. If u can, get a Mahindra Thar 4X4 .it helps. But not absolutely necessary. Even a regular car can make thru. The beach has just 2 small hotels withind blowing views of the lagoon and the sea of course. Gets booked very fast and I guess it's mostly open just from Oct to may as rains are quite heavy there.. The restaurant there is good and serves very nice food. The lagoon is so pretty and beautiful u can consider it a swimming pool of about 3-4 mtrs depth and as long as 800 mtrs or more. TIP: if you wanna visit here , suggest u rather book one of the huts here in either of the hotels..it's expensive maybe INR 10-12K per night but I assure you it's worth every penny, that is, if you get a booking :-)

We booked a boat trip from Agonda Beach with Lord Ganesha Boat and captain Sandy He dropped us at Cola.. It was a spectacular trip The beach is backed by a freshwater lagoon and feels like a desert island It's totally picturesque There are around 3 restaurants here and we chose the one you have to wade across the lagoon to get to.. That was a first A simple menu but a beautiful setting A day a Cola is a must We got picked up by Sandy bang on time who then sailed us down the coast where we saw monkeys on the cliff A truly memorable day

Me and my husband walked to Cola Beach from Agonda where we were staying - it was our wedding anniversary so wanted to venture out and explore. The trip took us best part of an hour due to the heat and some rough terrain but worth the trek for the stunning beach and lagoon. It felt quite busy, more so than I was expecting as it’s quite remote, but it’s not a huge beach so could probably feel full quite quickly. Our journey began at beach road at Agonda, then over the bridge and uphill, lastly making a left through scrubland before finally climbing down to the beach past the Dwarka hotel at Cola. We got a bit lost in the undergrowth but found our way in the end! Lots of nature along the way including a huge tree full of bats, a wild boar and yet more dogs and cows. The first view of the beach from the top of the hill was beautiful, it felt like we’d stumbled on a secret location. Sweet relief to have made it. All that was missing was a cocktail in hand. Frustratingly we couldn’t buy a drink at the hotel bar/restaurant seeing as we weren’t guests. We had a bottle of water with us for the walk but we were craving something icy cold! We didn’t stay at Cola long, aside from feeling a little dehydrated the sea was quite choppy with big waves breaking close to the beach, so we had a dip in the lagoon instead. Lovely to relax for an hour or so before making tracks again.

I don’t think any more could be said about how lovely this place is !! We were staying in Agonda and decided to give it a visit it’s only a short boat ride from there as we were informed by locals the vehicle access is a bit iffy try and get there if you can
