During the Sunset is the best time to visit. There are good restaurants on the Beach. You can go with some swimwear so that to enjoy the beach with family or friends. This place is best for couples looking for romantic candlelit dinner and long beach walk.

"Clean Beach"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jun 27, 2017
Compared to any north Goa beach this was clean. People who want to just relax and stay away from the hustle bustle of Goa, this should be ideal destination for you. But be assured if you stay here, you wont be able to commute to north Goa more than once as it takes around 2 hrs without traffic to reach. During off season it has very limited eating options and parking is difficult to find.

Nice place ... The beach is really flat and shallow you can easily go till far and enjoy the soft waves. As this place is like a bay. You can go with family friends .. Female friends I will not recommend to go alone because of the lecherous crowd which you will find anywhere you go. So better to be safe

One of the most beautiful beaches of Goa. You will just love being there. If you are interested In any kind of water sports, this is the right place for you. Kayaking is mostly preferred among the tourists. There's also Dolphin Island nearby also known as the Sunset beach from where you could get perfect look of sunset.

"The best offshore beach in Goa"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 30, 2016
This is the best beach I found in Goa. Not crowded and one can see number of crabs on shore... Very big spread it offers ride to Palolem island very near to beach. It also offers dolphin ride and other. Very clean and big beach in south Goa, full of foreign visitors. Take your volleyball with you and play it in sea.. Water level is up to knee only.
