HolidayIQ Reviewer Shilpz S adds, “Arambol was the last beach we visited in the North Goa beach hopping spree. Being Diwali it was a little dotted with people but yet quite sparsely crowded compared to the more popular Calangute. The cute cliffs at the horizons adda distinct touch to the views here at sunset. The place offers you the chance to sit back and gaze at the waters as you sip your beers. There are ample beach restos here, serving fresh catches and drinks. ...It was a great evening spent with fireworks in the skies. Totally recommend for a warm time with friends.Read Full Review
