Agonda beach is this huge expanse of beach with huge rock boulders in between. We went for surfing experience and were pleasantly surprised at all that agonda has to offer. Try the shops for some of the best wares knick knacks you may want to piick up, but please bargain, they are all over priced. Clothes, collectibles, shoes, bags, you name it, beautiful row lined shops with colourful display.
The cottages lining the shore looked very inviting, and the foliage and the decor in some of the cottages were a must see.
If you are a vegetarian or a vegan ZEST is a must try place, must try their smoothie bowls. Super efficient staff and lipsmacking food, the flavours just burst in your mouth.
Parking if you are lucky you will get on the side of the road or in the Green valley resort ground.
1 single line stretch from the main chowk on either side of the chowk and you have seen it all. The vast expanse of pristine blue water, the unending sky, the water sports, and the smooth as silk beaches will pull you back for more.
Unlike other beaches this has a slight incline where you may sit with your legs dangling on the sand at a height and watch the Rock & the sunset. I call it the "Pride Rock" from Lion King. The only thing missing was Simba.
Oh yes, the sea... criss crossing waves, never ending waves, crashing waves... symmetry or poetry, we could watch non stop.
Water and sand and the sky, have your fill at agonda!

We’ve been to this beach couple of times as we stayed nearby at The Bay Agonda. The beach is a clean well maintained less crowded beach. You can do some boat trips here - dolphin sighting, fishing, sunset, etc. This beach offers some really nice spots for enjoying sunset.

We visited at the end of November, the beach was practically empty every day (cows definitely outnumbered people) and absolutely pristine. There are endless bars, cafes and some beach side guest houses where you could go and use a lounger. There was a lifeguard the whole time when we visited and the waves were small enough to enjoy lots of swimming. Only downside to the beach is there’s no shade so with the temperature over 30 degrees we couldn’t enjoy it for more than a few hours at a time but stick around for the sunset around 6pm, it’s amazing!

Agonda Cottages; beware of putting a deposit on a cottage with this group. We couldn't travel in January due to travel restrictions and they did not allow us to rebook - having assured us when we paid £300UK each in December that we could rebook until May 2022. John cited business expenses. Dodgy guy!!

An absolute bliss when you are in Goa. Exact 1.5 hours from Goa Airport and taxi would cost you around 1900 for AC and 1800 for Non AC.

This beach is so nice that you will fall in love at first sight. There are several beach huts along the beach with sea view villas, cottages and shacks. You will not find lot of people, quite secluded and pristine. I loved the waters, they were so clean that I could even spot fishes and crabs. You can watch beautiful sunset from the beach.

A good walk of around 2 kms from one end to the other. Something to be noted is about the stray dogs, you will find lots of them on the beach.

Agonda is certainly gorgeous. It has a largely deserted beach, a sea that is memorable, but be careful waves and the undertow are quite strong, but, as you are careful that this is not) and a sufficiency of café's and restaurants – though the hotel itself produces very good food at reasonable prices, and for our part, we only ever ate in the hotel. And the usual array of shops.

The best things about the property are the location – right on the beach of one of the nicest beaches in Goa – couldn't be better located. And the dining/bar area is a very pleasant, overlooking the sea and right on the beach. The food is pretty good too, and the staff are very pleasant and accommodating.

The rooms though are mostly small and ill furnished, aalthough some describe themselves as partial sea facing they are barely that. The “basic” rooms are just that, and avoid rooms, 107 and 108 at all costs – maybe others as well. These rooms are next to the road, which is lit brightly, and there are no curtains to speak up, so if you are sensitive about light, sleep becomes very difficult. The rooms are Pokey and have very little furniture - though to be fair, they do have several electric points. We also had room 117, which was more or less sea facing (it faced te sea, but a little way back) and that was significantly better, though still very sparsely furnished. Do not be tempted to go for one of the basic rooms. They are just not worth it.

Agonda beach is beautiful and hasn’t fallen foul of too much development. It’s about 2km long but, even though there are plenty of people around, it never feels crowded. It is cleaned daily by a small team of local people. This is a great initiative as many beaches along this coast are ruined by the amount of plastic and general debris that’s washed up onto the sand.
The water is lovely to swim in, although occasionally the waves can be strong, so beware.
At the back of the beach are several really good beach huts, cafés and restaurants, and behind them a road with many more shops, cafés and more rooms for hire. Our favourite beach!

Hi, I visited this beach with my family for almost a week. The beach is very scenic with hills at both the ends and also a river backwaters. It has a lot of restaurants and shacks with om sai beach huts and its sea breeze restaurant standing out amongst all. Great place to spend a relaxing day hereat Shonda beach in South Goa.

Very much unlike North Goa; Agonda is very silent and chill. If you ever wanted to sit alone on a beach at midnight immerse into the feeling; this is the place. There’s a lot of restobars and huts on the beach. So finding accommodation is not an issue
