Lovely beach & nice place to go!

I just enjoyed the serenity of this beach. It was simply beautiful in 1 word. Lovely beach with rocky islands lying here and there which added to the beauty of the beach. A golden beach and we bathed over here peacefully. There was no bad crowd which waz an added attraction. There were plenty of beach shacks to provide u with ample food and drink. Its a place to simply lay back and enjoy the beauty of the place.

Ideal for couples & great experience for peace lovers

Agonda is a peaceful and stunningly beautiful beach. It serves well people who come to Goa for relaxing and spending quality times with their loved ones. The beach is scenic and very clean. And so is the sea water.

Do not expect activities, the nearest beach to serve the purpose is palolem which is approx 5kms from Agonda. The nearest beaches worth visiting are: Palolem (for activity), Cola (for scenic sight and dolphins), Butterfly (worth going by Kayak), Galziabag (extremely raw - no shacks, you could see Ridley's turtles in the right season)

Agonda Beach, known also as ‘the Silent Beach’ is located about 37 km from the historic town of Margao and 47 km from Karwar. It is 15 minutes away from the North of Palolem Beach, on the way to Panaji. Though it is a lesser frequented destination when compared to Palolem Beach, Agonda Beach is visited mostly by those in search of tranquility.

Agonda Village is surrounded by 120 acres of verdant forest reserves. This coastal fishing village of Goa, situated in the Konkan region, draws its unique tradition from various cultural influences. Agriculture and fishing are the main occupation of the people of Agonda. Konkani, Marathi, Urdu and Hindi are the languages spoken in this region.

The road leading to Agonda Beach traverses the Sahyadri Ranges, which makes a good drive for road trips. This beach is about 3 km long and is famous for its bay of white sand which is fringed by casuarinas and palms.

Agonda Beach is also famous for Cabo De Rama, an ancient fort, which was named after Lord Rama. As per folklore, Lord Rama stayed in this fort along with his consort Sita Devi for a brief period during his 14-year exile. The Cathedral of Santo Antonio nearby also provides a panoramic view of Agonda Beach and the Arabian Sea.

There are many sightseeing attractions around Agonda Beach such as Karwar, Margao, Panaji, Benaulim, etc. Agonda Beach also offers activities such as trekking, hiking, canoeing, fishing and boating. Swimming is not encouraged as there are no life guards at Agonda Beach.

Agonda Beach is a protected location under the National Sea Turtle Conservation Project as it is a nesting site of the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Agonda villagers and environmentalists, who are actively involved in this project, take great care to keep the surroundings of the beach undisturbed and pollution-free.
