    Visited noon time and enjoyed the sun and sea. Properly maintained having clear water and the tides were exciting. Eatery facilities were good. Can enjoy having good seating arrangement. Boating was good

    loud and crazy or amazing and crazy- you can call it what you like. For the action at all costs types, Baga has it all - launch rides, speed boating, water scooters, parasailing, shacks, night clubs, loud music blaring all night and food and drink offers of all kinds.
    For those targetting peace and solitude- this is certainly not the place for you.
    However we a mid-sixties couple, both teetotallers and one a staunch vegetarian did not exactly get repelled, though our tastes veer more to the south goa kind of laid back environ.
    The best is to stay in south goa for half the time and switch to Baga for the end of the vacation.

    One of the first beaches in north goa (coming from the airport), candolim is located near Taj aguada. With enough official parking space (both 2/4 wheeler) it is quite convenient to drive in. Cleaner, less crowded and with better crowd density (less youngsters) compared to calangute/baga. Not scenic when it comes to watching sunsets compared to Anjuna/vagator. Can enjoy beach sports (including parasailing), night/morning walks and grab a bite at multiple shacks (walk a little farther from the entry point to get quieter, less expensive shacks). Avoid peak sun timings (between 12-3pm).

    Chapora beach is not so popular among tourists and not very well developed like other South Goa beaches. Tucked away from hustle bustle of Goa you may spend some time enjoying Sunset at this beach. Very quite and beautiful place good for photography lovers.

    This might be the most scenic beach in Goa. Morning, afternoon, evening whenever you go here you will be mesmerized by its beauty. Last time I visited this place on a day trip from Benaulim but could not get enough of the beach. So this time I decided to stay at least for a day here.

    The only con of this beach is that it is located far away from the main hub of Goa so it might take a long time to reach here. We started from Panaji at 4 and it was quite dark when we reached there. My boyfriend was very scared while driving in that dark but I won't say there was any safety issue. Still its better to reach here before dark if you are not sure about the direction. Our stay was just behind the Art Resort Cafe so we just walked over to the beach through the cafe everytime. I must say at night the beach looks magical. Though we dont see much clublife on the beach but the entire beach is set up with beautiful candle light dinner arrangements by the shack guys. There are beautiful cabanas also where you can sit and enjoy your drinks. Surprisingly the drinks here are super cheap compared to North Goa but just an advice....always check the menu before placing any order.

    The morning view of the beach was far more beautiful. It was much calm and peaceful. We rented a kayak and went deep inside the waters till an island called Monkey Island and spent quite some time relaxing in the waters. Best part of the beach was that it was mostly filled with foreigners and so I happily wore my bikini when I went for a swim without any awkward look from men.

    It was my birthday that day so my boyfriend arranged for a shack to beautifully decorate their cabana at some minimal charge and we had a wonderful time there cutting cake, enjoying our drinks and having a tasty dinner while enjoying some soul soothing music.
    It was honestly the best beach experience for me in Goa and even though I might get bored of Baga or Calangute one day I can never get bored of Palolem and would definitely go there again and again.

    I highly recommend you to visit this beach if you are in South Goa and its better if you can stay a night or two here (you will even find beach huts right on the beach). Do not miss out kayaking in the waters. Also it is one of the safest beach in Goa to go swimming. Other than this you can also try out the boat ride to Butterfly Beach if you are interested. Also if comfortable....ladies do put on your favourite swimwear here without fear. If you don't own one feel free to shop at the local stores.

    One of the clean beach of Goa with long shore. The Shore has plenty amount of shacks with delicious eatery.
    One can have a long walk on the beach and get relaxed. Also there are paragliding from nearby hills option if one likes Adventure.

    We could not able to visit the lake but it says a worth to visit.

    Go for early morning around 8 am if you don't want the crowd much.

    Located very near to the Airport this beach is not to famous among tourists. Beach is well maintained and clean and shacks are available selling sea food and drinks. Not so crowded like other famous beaches of Goa, you may spend memorable time and enjoy sun set views.

    Nice view point and very clean beach. And the taj resort also situates at facing the sea. Not very large, but nice and decent beach. Have a beautiful view point / photoshoot spot. Vicar parking space is very tight. Have to park road side that too with ticket of Rs.100.

    We were just driving down and came across this wonderful beach by chance.The crowd was extremely thin and there were a few locals. The pattern made by bugs over large stretch is wonderful. Fairly clean and towards a side has coral reef. However the beach seem to suffer from oil spill as the sand is blackish . The water also seemed muddy . However the sunset looked amazing.

    This is tucked away in a corner. With less crowds and a serene atmosphere, you get the much needed relaxation here at Morjim.

    Dolphin sighting and we sighted many. Ferry takes you to spot where possibly dolphins can be sighted. Along the coast line they keep briefing you about various landmarks. Dolphin sight must be the interest.
