“Famous, but not great anymore”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I had been to Colva beach about 10 years back and had been awe struck with the peace and tranquility there. At that time, this was very far from North Goa and and was one of the most peaceful and beautiful beaches. It would have been so but for the popularity! It was over filled with tourists and I was saddened to see that the shore had become dirty.

The beach itself is still very good and watching the sunset was amazing, but the crowd and the dirtiness around was saddening to see. Wish it can be cleaned up and the old glory restored

“Colva Beach, Goa”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Probably the best beach in South Goa. Loads of food shacks and not a turbulent beach, so families can have a wonderful time bathing

“peaceful”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Away from the maddening crowd, my kind in short. A typical south Goan ambience surrounded by shacks, good food and booze.

“One of the famous beaches of Goa”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Its a huge beach with all the facilities and bars nearby. Only one thing I don't like about this beach is that its a crowded beach. you can not simply seat and enjoy the silence with beach.

“White Colva Beach”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I visited first time Goa and i didn't know about any beaches of the Goa. My stay was at Colva beach. During my visit, i visited several beached of South and North Goa but among all, i found Colve beach most beautiful compared to Calungunt beach whoch is most popular.

I found this beach is very peaceful and having long white sand with all the facility for entertainment. I could enjoy my stay with peace of mind which i really wanted at that time and could fulfll my purpose of tour. Also very good food is available in various restaurants near beach.

To me, i would like to visit this beach again and enjoy here only for one week.
