Awesome place for good food. Silent beach and peaceful backwaters. Loved the kayaking experience. Did it for the first time.
Beautiful picturesque place!

There are two important things you need to know before you plan this beach.its very secluded and in far jungle area,so its important that you plan early and leave by 6 latest.secondly the last 1 km road to the beach is very dangerous as its steep and unbuilt road,only trained drivers can make it.

The beach is really beautiful. The road to it was fun as I love really bumpy offroad driving and I have a high wheelbase 4x4 but otherwise under no circumstance should you attempt it in a normal car. We went for kayaking in the Lagoon which is one of the biggest scams, they charged us 100 rupees per person for every 30 mins which is fine until you Paddle around the corner and realise they've lowered the water level so much that there is only about 500 meters of water (maybe less actually) so it's effectively a shallow pond that you could wade end to end (in the water) the whole 'pond' in about 7 mins. So about 2 mins of paddling each way. It will be nice for someone to take an instagram picture to pretend they went kayaking but that's the extent of it. One comment was that its great for kids that can't swim because it'd be impossible to drown as its only 2 feet deep. I'd suggest negotiating a 20 rupee fee to take a photo if your so inclined. 😉
It's something to do if your bored for 10 mins I suppose.

View : The views here are breathtaking during the evening.

Access : If you are not staying at cola - you can come either by vehicle or boat ! But if you come by boat let the boatman know accordingly, there’s a kakolem beach next to cola which also very beautiful. Boat- 2500-3000 dolphins + kakolem + cola and back ~ 3hrs total.
If you are coming by 2 wheeler you can go downhill upto 500 meters near beach, but the road is very bad last 2 kms.
If coming by 4 wheeler, you’ll have to park up and hire a jeep for going down. Charge is 100 one way per person. If you have big suv 4*4 you can go down if confident in driving!

Activity : there’s kayaking in the lagoon next to sea, 100 per person for 30 mins, but if you have done before and not afraid of sea- do kayaking in sea at agonda, patnem etc. Totally worth it!

Stay: Dwarka and Blue lagoon both have nicely located rooms, bang opposite the sea.

Beautiful and picturesque beach. Just 1 shack on the beach. Another one is a private one only for the guests of the respective resort. There’s a fresh water Lagoon just next to the sea. Water flows from the Lagoon to the Sea through a narrow stream. You can do Kayaking in the Lagoon or you can walk/swim in the lagoon that is only waist deep.
1 Km off road from the main road. Then another 2 Kms dirt road to the beach parking. And then a few stairs to the beach area. A Car with good ground clearance is recommended for the last 2km stretch. Some people took their Hatchbacks as well. Not much of a problem if you are a skilled driver or don’t mind your car bottom touching the ground once or twice.

Inaccessibility of the beach makes it exotic and slightly less crowded and clean.

No phone signal or internet connectivity. Rely on Resort’s or Shack’s wifi.

Cola is undoubtedly one of the cleanest and best beach in Goa. Silent and away from the crowd, perfect for relaxing with a great view

Visited cola in the month of Nov19. Cola beach is small n very clean beach . There's only one beach shack available. There is khol rever get merged in sea on beach . It's a excellent beach to spend your quality time with friends and family. Only problem is beach is 4 km far from village .road to beach is very difficult to drive. Local cab charge Rs.500 to 800 to drop to beach.
Shack is very moderately price with good food quality. Service is slow.
In all must visit place if u like seclude beach .

This beach is comes one of the best beach in south goa….

the honeymoon cottage very front of beach is wonderful view from the room….

Only one shack is available in the beach but that is good and food was really tasty, prices are quite high but there is no other choice….

If you come with the four wheeler so please keep in mind the low hight sedans are not access-able please don’t try to enter after fencing point otherwise you will stuck in between and there is only one way for incoming and outgoing which is very undulated and risky.
So park your vehicle around 800m away from beach near fence area and you can easily track the beach.

If you are going with the bikes then you can reach out till near the beach.

You can enjoy here with freshly coconut water with your fav drinks 😊.

This place is very peaceful and silent place you will enjoy only the sea waves sounds…

There is a small lake where you and your kids can swim coz the sea waves are too high and here.

The beach is nice & clean and the unique thing about it is the sweet water lagoon. However, the path to reach the beach is dangerous. Right off the main road, you see the first parking spot. It's a 1.5-2 km jungle trek from there. The road is in extremely bad condition (actually there is no road). You can take your car/scooty/bike further down right before the descending stairs start but at your own risk coz the the path is terrible. Once you reach the beach, there is just one shack/restaurant. You cannot swim in the sea here but can swim in the lagoon or do kayaking in the lagoon. So, overall, we felt it was a bit overhyped based on all the rave reviews we had read about it.

This place was a let down!
The parking that you see first, from there to the actual beach is about 2 kms. The road is bad, very bad and if you have a car which does off roading or no care for it, go on with the car. If you are taking your scooty, drive with utmost care.
There is a tiny stall and a restaurant midway, decent. Once you reach the beach, the main attraction is the backwater, the lagoon.
We went in February, and we found it moderately crowded, the water had algea in it and honestly, not worth the effort. There is one huge beach restaurant catering to all and some lifeguards. Thats all we could see, we were disappointed.
