This beach is comes one of the best beach in south goa….

the honeymoon cottage very front of beach is wonderful view from the room….

Only one shack is available in the beach but that is good and food was really tasty, prices are quite high but there is no other choice….

If you come with the four wheeler so please keep in mind the low hight sedans are not access-able please don’t try to enter after fencing point otherwise you will stuck in between and there is only one way for incoming and outgoing which is very undulated and risky.
So park your vehicle around 800m away from beach near fence area and you can easily track the beach.

If you are going with the bikes then you can reach out till near the beach.

You can enjoy here with freshly coconut water with your fav drinks 😊.

This place is very peaceful and silent place you will enjoy only the sea waves sounds…

There is a small lake where you and your kids can swim coz the sea waves are too high and here.

We arrived by boat from Agonda which was an easy journey. The beach is unspoilt and very clean. There seemed to be 3 restaurants surrounding the beach, elevated on the rocks. We ate at a small one on the left side of the beach and it was very good and inexpensive with very nice smiling staff. Thefresh water laoon is a delight to swim in and very safe for young and old alike.

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 had a recommendation from people we met in Patnem that Cola Beach was a must go place to go for sunset and food.

We jumped on the Royal Enfield and headed over late afternoon.

Whether it was high expectations from what we had been told we are not sure but there were a few things they omitted to point out to us.

Firstly Cola Beach Road on Google maps looks like a circular road. When we got onto it one part of the road didn't exist. To use to the term road is a bit of poetic licence as its not only a sandy dirty track, but it's so bumpy with step hills that the motorbike struggled with people. I wouldn't have wanted to do it on a scooter with smaller wheels although others did. Cars were also trying to get to the car park above the beach blocking up the track.

When we finally arrived, covered in red dust from the track we walked down onto the beach to enjoy a swim before sunset. The beach is really small with lots of rocks above and below the water and with rough waves we decided not to go in. Our looked like one of the two restaurants was preparing for a wedding so in the end we decided to give up and head to Agonda for sunset and food.

It is a beautiful small secluded beach but its really hard work getting there (no Rickshaws would go on the track) if you don't have a bike.

And for safety I would swim bin the lagoon behind the beach as the rocks would make it quite dangerous for swimming in the sea.

A true hidden gem and an untouched perfect strip of beach. What a lovely 1 night stay we had here. I would recommending staying for either 2 or 3 nights. A perfect getaway from the crazy world.

Warning: There is no phone reception here and no Wi-Fi so please make sure you have contact arrangements in the event of an emergency.

Visited cola in the month of Nov19. Cola beach is small n very clean beach . There's only one beach shack available. There is khol rever get merged in sea on beach . It's a excellent beach to spend your quality time with friends and family. Only problem is beach is 4 km far from village .road to beach is very difficult to drive. Local cab charge Rs.500 to 800 to drop to beach.
Shack is very moderately price with good food quality. Service is slow.
In all must visit place if u like seclude beach .

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

Really beautiful and unique beach for a day trip or remote peaceful stay. The beach is situated between to hills, with resort and restaurant on each of them, separated by a river where you can bath. So, you have a stripe of sandy beach with river on the one side and the ocean on the other. The restaurants are peaceful and has great view.

This place was a let down!
The parking that you see first, from there to the actual beach is about 2 kms. The road is bad, very bad and if you have a car which does off roading or no care for it, go on with the car. If you are taking your scooty, drive with utmost care.
There is a tiny stall and a restaurant midway, decent. Once you reach the beach, the main attraction is the backwater, the lagoon.
We went in February, and we found it moderately crowded, the water had algea in it and honestly, not worth the effort. There is one huge beach restaurant catering to all and some lifeguards. Thats all we could see, we were disappointed.

A little beach apart from urban humdrum. Very picturesque and having a tiny water channel just beside the sea where one can take a bath without the waves . Full of seashell rocks and stones the beach look stunning.
