“Excellent Beach”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

One of the more popular beaches of Goa, it is an extension of the Calangute Beach and although a tad crowded, has everything that a beach can offer including very good restaurants, cafes as well as beach shacks and also a wide variety of water sports for the enthusiasts. Sort of spoilt by the River Princess which grounded here in a storm way back in 2000, and the wreck to this day is still to be cleared, talk of government apathy !

“Fabulous beach”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

As someone who lives next to one of the best beaches in the UK, I'm not easily impressed by other beaches, but Candolim beach is beautiful. It has improved now that the River Princess has gone and there is now beach cleaners on there each day. The only bad part is at the bottom of beach road where there are too many shacks and the sand is courser and a different colour, as well as being filthy, so you need to go further along in either direction to get the better and c,earner beach.

“Excellent Beach in GOA”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Candolim beach is one of the best beach in Goa that we have found in our trip.
Beach was very nice, very clean and peaceful. very less nuisance compared to any
other beaches in GOA. If you want to see real beauty and peacefulness of the beach
then you must have to come here. Water sports rates are very low as compared to the BAGA
beach and Calangute Beach. Beach Shake Charges were very less as compared to any other
beach. Overall good and nice experience on Candolim Beach

“Lovely beach one of the nicest !!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Candolim beach is just one of the nicest, lovely warm sea, great waves loads of golden sands. The River Princess has now been removed, what a diffrent it makes to the beach.There are plenty of beach shacks to choose from, the prices have gone up a little since we went there 2 years ago, not cheap anymore, they are now same as the restaurant prices in Candoim town.
