The entrance to the beach smells very strange, and is dirty in patches. The beach was average. Nothing special about it. I was overcrowded and filled with a number of really drunk people, who were trying to take videos and photographs of the other visitors on the beach. Plenty of water sporting options if that's your thing.

Went to Colva beach for water sports. We did Jetski and Parasailing (the one which takes you to ocean). Its a crowded & a bit dirty, but was OK. Me and wife loved the Jetski experience. Now remember to do the para-sailing which takes you out into the sea, as that is a way better experience than one they do... More

It is a very clean beach with good number of shacks on the beach. The sand is very soft, one can also indulge in watersports here. Its one of the more popular south goa beaches and thus little more crowded.

Good place for a long walk upto Benaulim with good shacks available en- route Although parasailing for Rs 1000 for a two- three minute ride is a little put off

You can go for water sports at almost all the famous beaches of Goa. However my favourite is Colva beach because its a very long beautiful beach with white sands. The adventure of water activities only gets doubled when you get that dose of beauty all around. If you are a water adventure freak then this is definitely the place... More
