We were lucky to find this beach shack and ended up here for all of the remaining days of our trip as our sole reason in Goa, was to relax and recover from the adventure we had in Kerela. Monica and the team are very nice and friendly and we always had a sun lounger along with lunch. The wifi... More

Monica's shack is the cleanest shack I have visited. The food is great and so is the price. the family are beautiful people inside and out and I would recommend this shack to everyone. The beds are free as long as you drink or eat there. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner at the restaurant on the main Candlim road.

Lovely food and friendly staff at a quieter end of the beach. Reasonable prices and the tuna steak and chips is fantastic.

This view as per all the beach shacks is wonderful My only problem with this spot is the amount of hassle you get when sitting on a subbed ! We were charged 100r per subbed, not sure if that is consistent with the rest of the beach. But previously on other beaches we have not been charged The service from... More

The shack is average during the day time but is a great place to be during evening times where they serve on candle light mini table right on the beach. However it has a very small menu , no drinks only beers. The food was also average hence wont rate it great.
