Goa is known for its magnificient beaches that are strung along Goa's 60-mile (100km) coastline, like a lace frill on the edge of a colorful, skirt are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world- dazzling stretches of golden sand edging the aquamarine expanse of the Arabian Sea.Goa's beaches are speckled with quaint little beach shacks that serve ice cold beer and spicy Goan cuisine.
To start with, Anjuna beach in Goa is famous for its flea market and rave parties. The most developed beach segment is the Calangute - Baga - Anjuna belt in the Bardesh subdivision north of Panaji.
Baga Beach , a little further north, is a better beach and a more relaxed place to stay. Despite the concentration of resorts, hotels, beach huts, bars, restaurants, and souvenir stalls, there is innocence here, a freshness of childhood mornings.
Dona Paula Beach can make any beach holiday a memorable one. All in all Goa's 100-km long coastline gives an enthusiastic beach lover an opportunity to discover new secluded beach sites every day.
Cavelosim Beach :
Sleepy Cavelossim, straddling the coast road 11-km south of Colva, is the last major settlement in southwest Salcete: its only claim to fame. When here do plan a visit to Mabor, South Goa largest, and most obtrusive, package tourist enclave. Crammed together on to a narrow spit of dunes between the surf and estuary, the holiday inns and beach resorts combine to create a holiday camp ambience that has as little to do with Goa as their architecture.
Chapora Beach :
Crouched in the shadow of a Portuguese fort on the opposite, northern side of the headland from Vagator, Chapora, 10-km from Mapusa, is a lot busier than most north coast villages. Dependent on fishing and boat building, it has, to a great extent, retained a life of its own independent of tourism. The leisure purpose is very well served by the Main Street, lined with as many regular stores as travellers cafes and restaurants.
Condolim Beach :
Because of good options to stay, many of them tucked away down quiet sandy lanes and offering better value, make this beach site a good first stop if one has just arrived in Goa and are planning to head further north after finding one's feet.
Bogmolo Beach :
When compared with Calangute Or Colva, Bogmalo still seems a small-scale beach resort, still there's something about seclusion that one finds over here that makes one visit this beach area every time one visit's Goa. Beside this beach site is a reasonably safer site for swimming and have quite good eating joints and shopping options in Goa.
Miramar Beach :
On the way to Dona Paula, 1-km ahead of the confluence of the Arabian Sea and Mandvi River, under the palm shade, is "Gasper Dias" or Miramar Beach and is just 3-km away from the capital city of Panjim.
Pololem Beach :
Palolem pops up, as a favourite beach destination in Goa because its crescent shaped bay lined with a swaying curtain of coconut palms, is irresistibly photogenic. Frem accommodation point of view, there are beautiful beach huts and family room to choose from in Palolem.
Vagator Beach :
Barely a couple of kilometres of cliff tops and parched grassland separate Anjuna from the southern fringes of its nearest neighbour, Vagator. Yet to be disturbed by the hustle and bustle of tourists, life goes on peacefully, in the background, in Vagator and Chapora. It is cool rural area, without offering the tourist any big shopping complexes.
Varca Beach :
If one is staying in Benaulim, one is bound at some point to visit Varca. Do check out the row of beached wooden fishing boats 2-km south of Benaulim that belong to its community of Christian fisher folk, whose palm thatched long houses line the foot of the grassy dunes.
Morjim beaches have a sentry beauty of the sand, sea and sky which makes a great combination of these three.
