Making you forget all your worries back home. No issues for vegetarian people - multiple restaurants are available for vegetarians and for non-vegetarians, those are limitless.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq adds, "The atmosphere is so calm that you may enjoy the music created by the waves when they break at the shore. At the back, the beautiful coconut trees and palm trees and the huts on rent, make this beach more attractive, as this beach is also popular among the foreign tourists. The beach cafes provide food and beverage, especially beer and other liquor on demand and nice food, especially fish and prawns. Beach chairs with umbrellas are chargeable, all major accommodations are close, and it is situated at a distance of 10 km from Anjuna Bardez. For beach lovers, it is a perfect beach, close to the main city. North Goa beaches have very good roads and traffic is very disciplined." Read Full Review

Once it was a fishing village; now it has developed as one of the popular beaches among the awesome beaches of Goa. It has now almost all facilities for the visitors from nice beach shacks to beautiful huts and other accommodations. This beach is very popular among the foreign tourists and is one of the safest beaches. It is a gateway to Kalacha Beach, which is fed by hot springs and lined with sulphurous mud.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Durgesh Rangath Rajadhyaksha says, “We strongly recommend Italia (now being renamed Italize on Mission Street for Quattro Formazi Wood Fired Pizza & Mixed Veg Lasagna and Tangy Pasta. This is much better than the popular, overhyped Xtasi. Also try Pizza-Pasta at Farm Fresh and Ravioli-Pasta-Pizza at Gelato Factory, on Mission Street Corner with Busy Street. For South Indian Cuisine, try Pongal, Vada, Idly, Dosa etc at Mayura, Hot Chips, Anand Bhavan, Adyar Ananda Bhavan, Archana, etc. For boozing, beer and Bacardi rates are amongst the lowest in India. For example, Bacardi sells at Rs. 510, Bacardi Remix at Rs. 570, beer at Rs. 50 and strong beer at Rs. 70, Bacardi Breezer at Rs. 55. So chill out! Overall, it’s a good family destination.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vishal Rao says, “If one plans to take a trip to a beach to get a peace of mind, then Nagaon Beach in Alibaug is worth the visit. Not only is it cheap to get and stay but the serenity really engulfs you in its beauty. The food is the tastiest food one can have after a full-on exhausting enjoyment on the beach. Just as the visit and travel, even the food comes cheap. I will recommend this place to people of all ages and for those who’d like to find their inner selves. The sunset is worth a watch. It definitely does take you to a peaceful state of mind. The beach is an absolute favourite since it is the cleanest beach one will ever see, unlike other beaches.” Read Full Review
