"Nice calm and peaceful Beach"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 14, 2016
I had visited Colva Beach last Diwali vacation, though bit off season, but lot of things to enjoy. Water sports, lots of sea food and cool breezy air. It is very easily accessible from any part of the city. A two wheeler on hire should suffice.

"Good secluded beach"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Feb 27, 2016
If you want to avoid the maddening crowds of Baga/Calangute please come to this neat and clean beach. Though very less options of food and water sports. We had food at Johncy.

"Great beach, not too crowded"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 24, 2016
The beach is clean and rather deserted in the mornings. The beach is clean with no litter around and the water is good too. There is more crowd in the evenings and has parasailing and jet-ski to offer for water sports. The water sports were decently priced with parasailing priced at Rs. 800 for a round which lasts roughly 3 minutes.

The shacks nearby offer decent food options for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The one I specifically liked was Pedro's which offered good food. There was another shack nearby which also offered candle-light dinners by the beach.

"Good beach but located in a busy place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 18, 2016
This beach is one which is close to Airport and Railway station, so you can imagine how busy this beach would be. You will find so many people on this beach but overall a nice beach. If you are looking for a quiet beach then this beach is not for you but for the evening parties this place is quite happening.

"Beautiful & clean beach"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Nov 23, 2015
It is just awesome.

Less crowded and clean beach.

Low-tide waves and calm beach. You can't find any commercial activities and that makes it pleasant. You have just have beer and gaze around beautiful ocean.

You will forget about the city madness.
