agonda. palolem etc

Hi everyone from a very cold and rainy Turkey

So I am off to south Goa at the end of January and have been reading and researching as much as I can on line which includes watching vids on youtube.......why do I never see anyone in the sea ? All the vids show absolutely stunning beaches but there is never anyone swimming.......anyone out there have an idea why ? Is it the sea is dirty ? the gawping locals ? rip tides ? jelly fish ? Or just that it looks like a long walk down to the waters edge ?

the current can be strong on some beaches. observe the coloured flags . depends what beach you go to really . agonda and palolem are two of the better ones .

some beaches have a narrow shore , some are wide . there are hardly any jellies .

People do swim in the sea though as already mentioned there are currents & the sea can be rough so you need to keep within the yellow flags & don't go out of your depth.
