HolidayIQ Reviewer Shrikant Vaidya shares, “This is the best beach on the island for water sports. The clear waters enable snorkeling and scuba to a greater extent than any other beaches. Also, the boatmen are very friendly and helpful. Do remember being generous with them. There are 2 ways of reaching the beach. First and the most widely followed is from the Jetty, 20 minutes by boat. And, the second is by trekking. While on your way to Radhanagar Beach, you will find a board to your right saying Elephant Beach, 1. 8 km. This way is for the adventure lovers but be careful with the soil here may be muddy. To sum it up, this is a must visit and a gem of a beach.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhay Parmar says, “The location of this beach is right in the middle of the city and that is the reason it is the most visited beach in the capital city of Panjim. The beach is located at the confluence of the Mandovi River and the Arabian Sea. On a busy day there are many activities on this beach and sometimes, small events are hosted here. Sip on a tender coconut or just go for horseback riding or click some good photos. The place is perfect for a good picnic on the beach.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq adds, “Colva Beach is very popular among the tourists, due to its white powder type sand and various water sports, all paid. You can enjoy the wave riding on wave rider scooters and paragliding. Colva is situated in Salcete village, just 5 km away from Madgaon. With a 2.4 km stretch, it is bordered by coconut and palm trees. Here, the waves play their games at the shore. I participated as I like the high and rough waves quite a lot. The safety arrangements are good. Every 100 yards, lifeguards are placed to monitor the kind of waves. According to the behavior of the waves, safe zones are marked by the flags.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Deepak Yadav says, “Coral island or Koh larn is a beautiful beach which can be reached by a speedboat from Pattaya in an hour. The tour has to be booked in advance. It includes boat expenses, lunch on the island and other optional activities like paragliding, scuba diving, and snorkeling or banana boat. Water sports and activities can be booked when you reach there, but you have to pay a little more. After leaving Pattaya beach, our first stop was a huge boat cum platform right in the middle of the water from where paragliding can be done. It was a great experience. The next stop was another platform for scuba diving. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ingle Divyesh adds, “The factor that adds zing to the spot is the availability of a vast beach during low tide. If you like beaches, the cool sea breeze, and some drinks, this is the place for you. The water recedes to quite a distance and it is a pleasant time pass as well as a hobby to collect sea mementos and go for a long walk on the beach. The waters are calm and peaceful on the surface, as well as below it, and the beach is considered safe for swimming and frolicking activities seeing that the slope is gradual. This is an awesome place. ” Read Full Review
