Lovely clean beach with life guards on duty, although not great to swim in due to strong currents and big waves. Not clear enough to snorkel. Great value for money beach shacks for food and cocktails. Lots of stray packs of dogs on the beach...More

We stayed at the Taj. The beach is relatively quite, clean and appealed to our liking though you cannot compare goan beaches to for example Alicante or Mallorca where the water is turquoise green and you can see the sand under water.

A very pretty, quiet, clean and not too crowded beach that offers water sports and great food in shacks - all types of food but their specialty is sea-food.

This beach is one of the quietest beach of Goa. It starts from where the Colva beach ends. It has lots of shack shops which sell clothes & other items. Please wear hats in case you visit the beach after 10am as its extremely hot.
