Romantic getaway, pure sands and clean waters

Though Agonda beach was difficult to go to, very narrow roads and easy to get lost along the way, the beach was worth a visit. Large shore, clean sands and pure water. Not an ounce of garbage could be seen anywhere around, beach was very clean, the seaside shacks were well equipped and quite safe. The best way to reach there is through a bike, though the journey is arduous, it is worth the travel.
