Very crowded place

Well, this is one of the popular beaches of Goa but very crowded. Here mostly you will find the young public.
The beech has quite a lot restaurants to relish awesome food. Brittos is a good one. Besides, there are water sports like motorboat and speedboats.
If you have traveled by your own car; to park in the parking area which is close to the beach entry. Avoid parking anywhere else which may be far from the beach or maybe towards the end of the beach.
There are many shops near to the beach; you can empty your pockets as much you want.
