Palolem Beach Tips (19)


This is a lovely beach in south Goa that is 'undiscovered'...but unfortunately the place is now heaving with tourists being bussed in, either as a day trip, or for a 'romantic overnight stay'. To me its a fun place...but its lost its charm.

Palolem Beach

Wonderful place to hang out, very laid back and free and easy.

No 'tourist complexes', just beach shacks offering food and accommodation. Rent a room with a hammock overlooking the beach.

Not for those who want Westen facilties and tourist services, more for the independent traveller who wants to chill and apprecieate the realxing life in Goa.

Even if you prefer to stay in a hotel with a pool and all mod cons, at least make a trip to Palolem to see the 'other Goa'.

Palolim Beach

THis beach is wonderful, it is a long stretch of fine sand fringed with palm trees. You can stay in a "coco hut" which are shacks on stilts ( you gotta do it!) there is also a restaurant or two on the beach where you can sample some of the typically excellent indian cuisine on offer in Goa

Goa's southern most beach discovered by me at the most beaituful pearl with its sickle shaped bay of white sand and surrounded by hills, the one less frequented.

You can expect lush coconut groves, tranquil lagoons and long stretches of white sun-drenched beaches where the only sounds are the crash of waves and the breeze blowing through the palm trees.

In Palolem, nature is unspoilt, undisturbed and serene. Watch the sun go down, sleep by the sea with the night sky as your ceiling ...... life has never felt better.

Palolem beach at Palolem South Goa

An opposite to Baga, Calangute and Candolim beaches. Less crowded, much less drum and fruit sellers or henna tattooers. Much more palm trees, rocky suntanning alternative in the both end of the beach and some mountaineous scenery. The sun remains the same (late March 2003).
