    A beautiful quiet beach in south Goa. The long beach is fronted by many cafes and accommodation. However due to turtle nesting sites, the beach is free of sun loungers and shacks. Lovely sea with options for swimming and kayaking and also boat trips available to nearby beaches. This is the place to be if you want to escape the hustle.

    Stayed at the lovely Colonia Santa Maria,which is on the best part of Baga Beach,in my opinion.Great beach shacks in this area,our favourites being,Bongo,Bobby's and Boscos.All friendly and serve great food and drinks at competitive prices.The beach is beautiful with powder like sand and not too crowded in this area.The sea is lovely and warm,with good sized waves at times,great fun.Theres fruit sellers serving fresh sliced fruit at great prices,always with a smile and good banter.Theres a few beach hawkers,selling an array of goods,always with a smile,remember to barter,it's a must.But if your not interested,a simple no thank you,is all it takes.Loved our beach days and the weather was fabulous,not a cloud in sight and 36° every day.

    Brilliant beach, but then this is Goa. Nice shacks for food, drink and subbed. Very clean. What more us there to say? Close to restaurants and bars.

    Stunning beach on Arabian Sea. Soft sand. Warm water and beautiful sunsets. Few waves when tide is out to enjoy playing.

    Very clean beach with white sand...not very crowded during morning, but as dusk falls the shacks get crowded.
    The morning walk from Benaulim beach till Trinity beach was very serene. Early morning sight of the fishermen pulling their large nets from sea and sorting their day's catch was a great experience.
    This is a must visit place in South Goa!

    .This beach is really nice and sandy, there are beach bars with free sunbeds. The sand is soft and there is lots to do. It can be busy especially at weekends. The road leading to the beach has shopHoliday In Goa Tour and Travels. We got 2*, cold tasteless food on a run down old boat with a leaky toilet and dishonest staff. Chicken nuggets was served as a starter for meat eaters and a plate of soggy chips for us three vegetarians. Even the Indian couple on the boat were disgusted with food and lack of entertainment. There are five drinks included in the price - Kingfisher lager, cheap vodka, cheap brandy, cheap rum, cheap whiskey - and you have to buy the tonics, etc at Rs.180 each (Joel omitted to tell us that!) I drink gin, there was none on offer. This bad businessman called Joel didn't like my review in the boat guest book and shouted at me for it, I only wrote the truth.

    When we came back we went to see Joel in his shop, and what an exceptionally rude immature man he was. He shouted at me as soon as I walked in his shop. He chose to call me a liar and shouted over me all the time, threatened to call the police and wanted the shop door closed so no one could hear him verbally abuse me.

    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.

    Very busy during the day time, lot of places to shop. In the evening there are a lot of shacks for parties and dinners. The music can be very loud till about 10-11. It was a different experience. If you walk towards baga beach, you will find a small strip of beach which is less crowded.

    A clean , virgin beach with no nuisance of large crowds or over friendly strays . Some fantastic properties along the beach front make it even more tempting to spend some time here . One can see tonnes of people sunbathing or surfing on this beach

    I highly recommend visiting Vagator Beach in the evening to witness this captivating spectacle. It's a moment that will stay etched in your memory long after you've left, and a reminder of the incredible beauty our world has to offer.

    You can say that this is the gem of South Goa. It is a peaceful beach with rock patches here and there and a lagoon separated from the sea by a Sand Patch. The lagoon has still water makes it the best for Kayaking. If you’re at this place you cannot miss kayaking. The water is hardly 4/5 Ft deep and hence you don’t even require a life jacket. To reach the beach you have to climb down more than 100 high riser stairs from the parking area. The parking area is after a patch of off-roading kind of tracks from the main road. When you start entering the off-roading track many people on scooties would start tailing you and ask whether you want to do Kayaking, just say no to them and take the kayaks on the spot. This would save atleast Rs 100/Half an hour/Kayak.
    Never go on an extended weekend as the poor lagoon would be full of tourists especially from nearby Karnataka and Telangana state. It’s not there’s something bad about the people, but there would be just too many of them, and they would take the peace of kayaking away. No one falls from the Kayaks in water, it is totally safe and it is also a good workout.
    There’s a secluded beach (a very beautiful one), separated from the Main Cola beach by a rock patch. Going there is prohibited, but if you’ve confidence and can cross that rocky patch preventing the attention of the life guard, that secluded beach is nothing less than Phuket, bali, maldives, lakshyadeep beaches. You can see that beach from above before climbing down to the main cola beach. There are only a few shacks on the beach but the ambience and the food is good.
    There is a drawback that there’s no public toilet on the beach, one of the shacks allows using their washroom on a paid basis. Going back to the parking space is a challenge as you would have to climb the stairs from where you descended, that will certainly take your breath away (like literally). So don’t drink much on the beach, however it may tempt, as you would face trouble climbing back and there’s no other option. Thankfully there are vendors in the parking selling lime and coconut water, which will relax you a bit. Go to the beach in the evening time, as the kayaking and climbing up will totally exhaust you, post you can rest in your hotel after that as you won’t feel like going to any other beach then.

    This is one of the best beaches of North Goa, It is peaceful, bit rocky (nice to sit on and take photographs) and also to run if you include Morjim Beach too.
