    Enchanting beauty
    One of the the best spots we enjoyed in Goa. Wonderful views for photography. The experience of fresh water lake was amazing. Thanks to our guide Parveen who guided us to visit the beach early morning.

    Good on week days
    Though it was supposed to be least crowded beach, on Sunday it's like any other beach packed with people. Better avoid weekends. Otherwise, it's serene especially in morning with calm waters, it's safe to play in water even for non-swimmers, sea is shallow & clean as well. You can spot starfish on the shore.

For a memorable experience in Goa, don't miss out on visiting one of its finest beach Arambol - clean, calm, and serene. It boasts the best market for shopping, adding to its allure as a must-visit destination.

Tuesday evening 5th December, we spent the night at Nanu Resort Arambol. It was early evening and we decided to take a stroll to the Beach and surrounding area.

Just after the Planet 2 Restaurant there was a small road, Dando Road on the right hand side, which we took in the direction of the Beach. When the road came to an end we took a pathway and followed a sign for Wave de Goa, which we assumed was on the Beach.

We ambled through a number of narrow passageways which led us on the Beach a long and wide stretch of golden/brown sand.

We walked along the Beach as far as Harmal Beach Road, which was in excess of two kilometres. We took this road, on our way back to the Hotel, the street was lined with shops and stalls. The was also a beach car park, which was payable.

There was a real bohemian vibe to this Beach and must be on of the most eclectic beaches we have ever been to.

In between the numerous small fishing boats, lined up along the beach, there were sunbeds, umbrellas, tables and chairs belonging to the Shacks and bars. They were all facing the sea in preparation for the imminent sunset. Staff from the bars were very proactive in inviting us to sit and have a drink or food at their bar.

There were no Shacks or bars on the Beach they were all at the back on the sand dunes alongside the accommodation huts.

We did see some sights, there were people learning to walk on a tight rope, juggle and twirl a variety of objects. People were partaking in yoga exercises, stretching in some unusual positions. Others walked along carrying their surfboards looking for the best waves. Others just lay out on the sand while children of all ages built sandcastles.

Towards the Harmal Beach Road end of the beach there were a number stalls on the beach selling grilled sweetcorn.

Judging from the number of people, locals and holidaymakers, heading to the Beach, that it is a lively place in the evenings.

Dogs and cows wandered freely along the beach. While the beach cleaners, cleared up after the humans, no one cleared up after the dogs and cows, a bit messy and dirty in places.

Arambol Beach offers a clean, less crowded, and expansive sandy shoreline. The beach is known for its cleanliness, both in the water and on the sand, unlike some other beaches in the region. Numerous food shacks provide a variety of dining options, some offering better food quality compared to neighbouring crowded areas like Calangute and Baga.

It's considered one of the best beaches for surfing. The Coast Guard maintains a visible presence, even though the beach is less crowded, ensuring safety.

Non-commercial activities are abundant, making it ideal for leisurely walks and enjoying the ocean breeze. The northern part near the hill can be busier. Additionally, paragliding options are available for adventure enthusiasts.

Arambol Beach is also home to the hidden gem of Sweet Water Lake, a short walk from the main beach area, still relatively undiscovered by tourists.

Clean sandy and less crowded long beach, ample of choices for food shacks and some offering reasonably better food and experience than many over hyped places within same area, water and sand is so clean unlike beaches towards calangute, baga, anjuna
Apparently one of the finest beaches to enjoy surfing, unfortunately we couldn't due to rough sea, and the only beach where we noticed coast guard was so active and always on move despite less crowded beach
Many small villages with friendly local people

Would not recommend. Very littered and very dirty water. There is rubbish everywhere - glass, plastic, cigarettes, shoes... it flows in and out with the tide so you are covered in dirt and trash.

We went to this beach on a day trip a few days before Christmas. To our surprise it was a lot less crowded than we had feared. though by no means deserted. The 'white' sands looked actually quite grey and dirty, and at the north end near the rocks it was so filthy it looked like sewage was going into the sea, although from a distance with the backdrop of the hill and the colourful houses it presented a pretty view.
Near the main path to the beach (past the stalls) there are quite a few shacks offering food, drinks and sun beds, which were too close together for my liking. Being a seaside resort, most places offered lots of seafood, with (as so often in Goa) vegetarians a bit neglected.
We only wanted a drink and a snack. We went to Cocoloco, and sat at a table near the front with a view of the beach. Although the place was completely empty, a young kid rudely ordered us to sit right at the back. When we refused, he started swearing, so we went to Seastar just a few yards along where the welcome was more polite and civil. They did a rather nice channa chaat and a passable Hello to the Queen dessert. With a fruit shake each, the bill for the two of us was INR1000 - definitely overpriced.
I am pleased we went to see Arambol but wouldn't return. We much preferred Ashvem Beach where we were staying, much better beach, quieter, and shacks that serve great food and drink at sensible prices.
