We went there to see the turtles, but none to be seen. It is a nice and sandy beach but absolutely deserted, even though there is a lifeguard on duty. There is only one little shack type spot where you can get a snack and beer. We went by taxi from Palolem and did not realize it would be so empty. Luckily we had told the taxi to come back for us or we would have been out of luck for any way to get back to our resort. The place is that deserted. I would not recommend visiting even though the turtles are supposed to be there in November, they weren't.

I wanted to visit Galgibaga Beach because I heard about the turtle laying eggs on the beach here. This place is a turtle nesting ground and a sanctuary for the endangered Olive Ridley Turtles. We reached the beach in around 10am, and it was baking hot. There aren’t a lot of people here because this place is not commercialized. You will not find any shacks serving food or drink here. It’s the complete solitude, so peaceful and beautiful. Unfortunately, we couldn’t spot any turtle so we approached the lifeguards and asked them about the little creatures. The lifeguards told us that the nesting season is in November, and the turtles usually came in at night so it’s impossible to spot them.
We spent some time here anyway because it’s really beautiful and peaceful out there. Although the beach is baking in the heat of the sun, but under the shades of trees, it’s really cool and relaxing. The sand is really soft, and the whole area is really clean. I was disappointed that we didn’t see the turtles, but at the same time, I understood that the creatures needed their space and this place is a sanctuary to them. We tried to leave as little footprints as possible because we didn’t want to disturb their home.

Galgibaga beach is not easy to find but when you reach there you will love it. long beach with white sand and on the right side the river coming in the sea... not a touristic beach and its better like that.

Love visiting this beach. It's just miles of Andy beach. Beach huts are few and are tucked away so does it feel like a beach that's like a resort. Is,unspoilt and relaxing. There is a great restaurant called santoosh which I recommend. The sea is rough. But there is a river and lagoon area that is safe for swimming and relaxing.
