Palolem Beaches Goa


Palolem is probably Goa's most beautiful and idyllic beach and it has 1.5 km crescent shaped beach. The beach lies on the southern coastline of Goa amidst outstanding natural beauty. The sweeping crescent of white sand is fringed by a shady rim of coconut palms and the whole beach is hemmed in at either end by rocky crags. It is fast emerging as a popular spot for day-trippers from Colva and Calangute, many travellers drift down from the northern beaches to spend days, weeks or even months chilling out here; there is very little development and it's extremely laid-back. Most accommodation is in simple, rickety beach buts or villagers homes, with a handful of more solid guesthouses scattered around. Palolem Village is nestled in the palms back from the beach. With the large influx of tourists to the Northern beaches and the resultant increasing commercialisation of these places. Palolem fits the bill and in recent years, more and more tourists have been making a beeline for this palm fringed golden beach. 


Until recently, foreign tourists were few and far between in Palolem. Over the past three or four years, however, increasing numbers of budget travellers have begun to pour in, and the village is now far from the undiscovered idyll it used to be, with a string of cafes, Karnatakan hawkers and a tent camp crowding the beach front.  Souvenir stalls have also sprung up, catering mainly for the mini-van and boat parties of charter tourists on day-trips from resorts further north. In spite of these encroachments, Palolem remains a resolutely traditional village, where the easy pace of life is dictated more by the three daily rounds of todi-tapping than the exigencies of tourism.


At Palolem (especially) you will see the sea as you have never seen it before. Set in a bay that resembles the Gulf of Mexico, the water is tepid and at a lovely depth of 4 feet for about a kilometer into the sea at normal tide. This is really great for people out with kids and don't want to fret about them getting in to the water and having fun. It's also great fun for adults.

If you are the type who wants to get 'away from the crowds' than Palolem is the right place. This impossibly beautiful crescent cove in the far south of Goa is so languid and balmy that even the water has only enough energy to lap half-heartedly onto the beach. There's nothing to do here but soak up the rays, and go for long walks paddling in the shallows, so bring a friend, some factor 15 and a good book."

A final note, please treat these lovely beaches as your backyard and keep them clean. We have lost innumerable natural resources to our own be
