Location description from owner

The Goa region

SOUTH GOA

PALOLEM (click here for photo)

Palolem is a cosy beach of white sand facing a blue bay between two headlands. The little wooded islands on the northern headland look alluring and you could try and persuade one of the fishermen — this is also a fishing beach — to ferry you across. They also offer to take you out to spot dolphins. Tourists have of late discovered Palolem and so there are quite a few shacks selling seafood snacks, souvenirs and clothes of the bright, informal kind. Panaji, the capital, is more than 70 kms away.

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. You can hire taxis and auto-rickshaws to reach Palolem beach from Margao, 40 kms away. There are regular buses from Margao to Palolem that drop you off at Canacona village.

There are now beautiful beach huts and family rooms to choose from in Palolem. Further south is the cove of Colomb where you can enjoy peace and quiet. Two kilometres away from Palolem is Rajbag Beach which is isolated and stretches all the way to the mouth of the Talpona River. And then on to Galgibaga Beach which is the second nesting site in Goa for turtles. Further south is Agonda Beach

AGONDA

If you continue driving towards Panaji from Palolem, the next beach is Agonda.
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.

Agonda is a 3 km long beautiful cove of white sand, safely secluded in the palms. There are no tourists, no souvenir stalls, no restaurants—just peace and tranquility. Just the trees, the beach, the big beautiful ocean and you.

It also makes for a great day trip from Colva and Covelossim. For a real adventure, hire a tent and camp for the night, listening to the crashing of the sea waves.


Not far from Agonda beach is Cabo de Rama, untouched by most of the visitors in this region. The atmosphere of the fort creates a sense of history and drama that very few would fail to appreciate. The fort is named after Rama, hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana. According to local legend, Rama stayed here with his wife Sita during the period of his 12-year exile.

The best way to reach this beach is by a scooter or motors bike.

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. There are numerous beach shacks offering a variety of Goan dishes and seafood at reasonable prices.

There are several food joints around the grand 'Dona Sylvia' resort offering a splendid repast at reasonable rates. There are also facilities for Dolphin watching up the River Sal.

The beaches here are home to some of the most exclusive and luxurious resorts in Goa. Accommodation is also available for budget and economy class travelers, though not on the beach itself.


There is plenty of transport for these beaches from Margao. From Cavelossim village, Margao is 18 kms away and buses and autos are available easily. You can also hire taxis from Dabolim Airport (41 – 48 kms) to reach the beach resorts here. To move locally, use cycles and scooters that are available on hire.

BETALBATIM (click here for photo)

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

COLVA (click here for photo)

This is the most important beach in the South circuit, equipped with all modern amenities like air-conditioned resort complexes, tourist cottages, discos, besides several stalls, eateries and guest houses—all of which have expanded the village enormously.

With 20 kms of virgin white sands, palm fringed, sun drenched beaches, Colva is the most loved beach in Goan. Unlike Anjuna or Calangute, Colva has gained popularity only lately. Located just 39 kms from the capital Panaji, it was relatively little disturbed and life moved on quietly.

The Church of Our Lady Of Mercy in Colva is famous for its miracle statue of Menino Jesus. The busy road leading from the Church to the beach is where all the facilities are located.

While taking a stroll on Colva Beach, silver carpets of mackerels can be seen shimmering and drying on the golden sands. Fishermen's motor trawlers huddle in a line offshore. Tourists and locals frequent the beach for a dip or a walk for a change of air or to sunbathe on the golden sands. The trinket stalls and drink stands on the sands under the moonlight add to the aura of Colva Beach.

MAJORDA

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.

Majorda is the village where the Jesuits, fond as they were of the good things of life, discovered the best Goan toddy (sap from the coconut palm), which they used to leaven the bread. Naturally, then, Majorda is the place where the Goans were first trained in the delicate art of baking European breads. The Majordans are still Goa's best bakers.

The delights of the beach, however, were discovered much earlier, in mythical times. Legend has it that in the Goan version of the Ramayana, Lord Rama was kidnapped as a child and brought up at Majorda. Later, in pursuit of Sita, he camped at Cabo de Rama - a headland further south - where the stretch of developed beaches ends.


BOGMALO

This beach, dominated by a 5-star hotel located right on its edge, is cut apart from both the North and South beach circuit. Just 4 kms from the airport at Dabolim, it is a favourite among the elite classes and has an air of exclusivity.

Although the resort hotel towers above the village, there are still a few smaller and appealing places to stay in. Windsurfing and water skiing facilities are available.

BENAULIM

Less than 2 kms south of Colva is the more tranquil beach of Benaulim, is one of the few places in Goa where one can glimpse handicrafts typical to this area. The best of the traditional rosewood furniture is made here. Also, mythically Benaulim is famous as the place where the legendary Parashuram's arrow landed by which Goa was created.

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.

The Church of St John the Baptist is situated on a hill beyond the village and worth a visit. On the arrival of the monsoon, the Feast of St John the Baptist (Sao Joao) is celebrated as thanksgiving. Young men wearing crowns of leaves and fruits tour the area singing for gifts. To commemorate the movement of St John in his mother's womb and Mary's visit, the young men of this village jump into the locals wells in celebration.

BETUL (click here for photo)

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.

Beyond this secluded beach is the hill of Cabo De Rama where the Portuguese built a fort. From the fort, a great view of the sunset on the beach can be viewed. However, there are very few places to stay in Betul.

Colva

Colva is the oldest famous beach situated in South Goa.All star properties like Park Hyatt, Taj, Ramada etc are present in South Goa.People who want to relax as well enjoy their holidays prefer to stay in South Goa. You can go to other beaches like Majorda, Benaulim and very famous Pallolem Beach is also nearer from here where you go by local conveyance. Margao town is just 4 Kms from this place where you can shop anything.
You can hire a bike and be on your own to explore Goa. Personally speaking I will prefer to stay in South Goa because North Goa has become very commercial and no peace is left. Rather here you can enjoy both peace and fun at your wish. The early morning and late evening walks are fabulous in the Colva village.

In our bunglow the best thing for you is independent garden and big terrace to enjoy Sun which is not available in the apartments.This being independent house located in residential colony there is no nuisance as in flats or apartments which is often created by some tourists after drinking.When you are coming in family after spending so much money,you would like to stay at a place where your privacy is protected and you and your kids are safe and secure.

“Absolutely Fabulous”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

On arriving at Dabolim we took a prepaid taxi to Colva circle, after that we were lost! but one phone call to the lovely owners of the bungalow and we were soon picked up by them (they live very close in Margao) and they took us to the bungalow which we were only minutes away from. The bungalow is lovely, it is a new build and has everything you will need, a proper fridge, a decent microwave combi oven and a two ring gas hob, a large telly ( im sure hubby was fibbing when he said he could only get the cricket channel!!).The bungalow is spotlessly clean. There is a lovely garden that we enjoyed looking after, watering and sweeping the falling Bouganvilla flowers daily to keep it all shipshape. There are houses both sides and both sets of neighbours were very kind and friendly. We received eggs from Pannadi and Bananas from her tree. The bungalow is ideally situated approx. 2km from the main beach at Colva but hubby and I found that renting a scooter at RS250pd was the best way to get around and so much fun (we recommend a guy called Sabby who rents his bikes from just past the last shop on the rhs from the main road down to colva beach. Food and drink is still very cheap we recommend Manush restaurant to the left of colva beach in the corner and when you are desperate for some very good westernised food go to Jamies on the main street, they do lovely food and a great Cosmopolitan. Local buses are dead easy they go from the bus stand at the front of Colva beach, we would park the bike just to the left of the bus stand and hop on a bus that would cost RS14 all the way to the KTC and Railway Station at Margao All in all a great place to stay and the owners Rohit an Renu are really lovely and helpful, we had a fab time Thankyou. Ps there was RS80 to the pound when we were there.

Owner's reply: Dear Shelly and Nick, Thanks a lot.We are rather happy that people like you stayed in our bunglow and it was as neat nd clean as was given to you. Pls visit again whenever u plan next time.bye take care... regards, Rohit and Renu
