The Goa/West India region
Calangute is the most popular beach with thousands thronging it in both the peak and off-season.
Compared to Calangute, Baga is quieter and also more isolated. It is more popular with western tourists who love to use it as a base for water sports and fishing in the area.
Adjoining Anjuna, Vagator is secluded, crescent shaped and situated on the Caisua bay along the Chapora river basin in the shadow of Chapora Fort. During the tourist season, it is a favorite venue for midnight parties.
It is now famous for its weekly Flea Market, which draws legions of visitors every Wednesday and bargains can be had on apparel, footwear, jewellery, footwear, chess sets—and yak cheese.
Sinquerim is one of the finest beaches in Goa, offering international class facilities for water-skiing, parasailing, fishing, scuba-diving and wind-surfing.
Candolim is the first beach that can be approached from the city of Panaji and is like a gateway to the other more famous beaches. One highlight of Candolim is the parasailing and water skiing facility, besides other water sports.
Aguada beach is almost synonymous with the top-notch Fort Aguada Hotel complex, a superb hotel that is built on the cliff, around the remnants of the early 17th century Portuguese fort.
A favourite of Russian tourists, along with Ashwem beach close by, visitors will find signboards and menu cards in Russian!
ARAMBOL or HARMAL
Harmal Beach is the one place you cannot drive on to, but there are narrow lanes that lead to the higher reaches of the coast. You have to walk down a slope to the beach itself.
This beautiful 'urban' beach, akin to Chowpatty in Mumbai, is located just 3 kms from Panaji.
In recent times, Palolem has become famous for its 'Silent Noise' parties, a unique concept which does away with loud blaring live music after the 10 pm ban. With your own set of earphones, you can dance away to different genres of music played by versatile DJs. Palolem is just 3 kms away from Canacona Railway station, now on the Konkan Railway route.
It's long and lonely, fringed with palms and casuarinas and dominated by a large hill to the south.
It's not safe to swim out too far on this beach. There are very few facilities available here and you are needed to carry all the essentials.
VARCA, CAVELOSSIM, MOBOR
Varca, Cavelossim and Mabor are a trio of the most alluring beaches south of Benaulim. These beaches are much cleaner and quieter than most of the other more famous beaches of Goa.
North of Colva is Betalbatim Beach which begins a long string of beaches with Majorda, Utorda, Arossim and Velsao at the north. It is a ten kilometre stretch of white sand which is not very crowded
Tourists and locals frequent the beach for a dip or a walk for a change of air or to sunbathe on the golden sands.
This small stretch, about 5 kms north of Colva Beach, is as pretty as a picture, studded with several hotels, the most prominent being the starred Majorda Beach Resort.
Just 4 kms from the airport at Dabolim, it is a favourite among the elite classes and has an air of exclusivity.
Among the more attractive aspects of Benaulim is that it is still rather undiscovered by domestic tourists even though it is a fishing beach. It gets fairly crowded in the evenings and on weekends with local visitors who get off buses about a kilometre away and pour onto the beach.
Betul is an important fishing port where all the mechanized boats and deep sea trawlers bring in their catch. Here headlands from the slopes of the Western Ghats protrude into the shore, imparting an imposing backdrop.
Candolim beach is the second largest beach in Goa.
Candolim beach is wide with soft sand.
Judging Candolim from the outside you can say the beach never sleeps, the lights are bright during the day and late at night. The nightclubs in Candolim range from Shiro, Butter, SinQ Beach Club and many others.
So there is always something or the other to do at Candolim. The best months to visit Goa would be December to February.
There are many beach shacks in Candolim to choose from. Most of them don't bother publicising so the best way to know about them is to walk along the beach and just try out random ones that you see along your path
There are several beach restaurants here and a lot of sunbeds. It costs from 50-100 rupees depending on how good you are to bargain. There are many beach boys, hawkers and women selling "this-and-that" on this beach.
Buy food, beer, softdrinks, clothes and take massage. There are mostly English tourist here and some Russians. This beach is the best in North-Goa in terms of the sand/sea quality.
Picking a spot to have a meal might be a bit of a problem with the wide variety you have to choose from. Restaurants are easily spotted all along the road with different specialities, different sizes and each creating their own unique ambiance.
Restaurants such as Cecilia's, Harmony Bistro and many others provide mouth watering meals for you, your friends and family to enjoy.
