“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We wanted to explore some new beaches in north Goa ... We just happened to explore this amazing beach due to a mix up... We initialy planned to visit Mandrem beach and lost our way and ended up in Ashwem beach... Well as the saying goes whatever happens, happens for good... This Beach is simply extraorinary and spectacular... We were happy that there was a mix-up and we ended up on this beach....The beach is not crowded compared to the other north goan beaches and hence it is very clean and well maintained.... A must visit when you are in north Goa....

“The one of the finest beaches of Goa”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

This beach is located 15 KM away from Mapuca town of Goa. One of the best beaches in Goa. There are many near by good hotels and home stay available. Driving down to this place is a real pleasure. There are multiple picnic spots nearby and multiple locations where less crowded places one can really have fun. I and my family stayed at a home stay and really enjoyed the vacation.

“Your private beach”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

If you want a secluded beach in Goa, this is it. We went to it with a group of friends near Babu Huts and had a wonderful time. The ocean was warm and the undertow was not bad. Spending sunset in the ocean without a care in the world is pretty awesome.

“Don't go on a windy day”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

A soft sandy beach with a good selection of shacks with mostly good quality food, in particular Golden Eye. It's a nice walk along the seashore to either Morjim or Mandrem in the opposite direction. One word of warning though - because the sand is so fine, if it is windy it gets EVERYWHERE! I lost my sandals which became buried under the sunbed - took ages to find them!

“Gorgeous beach, great shacks!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Our first visit to Ashwem was in 2010, Absolutely love it, Our favourite shack being Golden Eye, Friendly staff,, great food, love chicken salad its to die for. Our towels were put onto the sunbeds, which is where we went once we had eaten, great place for a day out and hawkers generally stay away they usually just walk a few yards down from the sunbeds, the ones that do get a little too close get watched carefully by staff at The Golden Eye, just sometimes they need little persuasion to move on. The ice cream seller goes past regularly on his bike, ringing his bell as he passes, quite amusing at times - you can hear him getting nearer from afar but the bells seem to be rung quite a bit harder when he stops by just to let you know he is there. : ) On the whole, fantastic beach, Golden Eye is one of many shacks on Ashwem,
At this shack they have their own troop of friendly dogs, all very chilled out and conveniently all called Cobra :) Typically Goan I guess to lazy to say half a dozen names, say one name all dogs come a running.
The owner remembered us from the year before, but then that sums up Goans in general, seem to have amazing memories.
Will definately be going back to Ashwem beach on our next visit to Goa.
