In Colva you will find many locals in colourful dress and jewellery in the market area selling souvenirs. Most of them were happy to have their photo taken! and the photos will look good when you get home. Looking through my photos again i am actually not sure if they are all women!!!!
On my first trip to Goa, we stayed at Colva Beach in South Goa. Colva is one of the most popular beaches in the south. The south is much quieter and less developed than the north. If you're looking for "action", this is not the place to go, but if you want peace and relaxtion, this is the place.
Colva Beach has managed to keep all the hotels off the beach. You'll find a clean beach with (most of the time) blue water and palms trees almost to the shore. The water can be rough so be careful when swimming. The beach has some nice shacks for lunch and a cold beer or two. Water sports/parasailing are available from the beach.
There are beach sellers here (as on almost all the beaches - best to ignore them). Watch the stray dogs as well.
Colva beach is yet another beautiful beach of Goa. It is rather less crowded and you can enjoy a relaxed time there. There are many stalls outside the beach where you can try local food or buy Goa T-Shirts or beach dresses for yourself. Water sports are also becoming very popular in this beach.
Colva Beach is quite a busy place, especially at the point of entering it from Colva Town. Quite a lot of local people come here for a walk and for watching a sunset.
There are good beach shacks to have lunch or dinner, but it's more expensive than other beaches in the south.
Since the place is busy, lots of water entertainment activities are offered.
This is a view about halfway between Benaulim & Colva...looking in the direction of Colva...deserted bliss!
The beaches in Goa are excellent , white sand clear water and the warmth of the Indian ocean. Some of the beaches that we went include Bagga, Benaulim, Calangute, anjuna and my favourite Colva.
