“Not as great”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This place is not worth the hype surrounding it.
Before you reach the main destination you will be overwhelmed by the small shops selling tourist junk.
Once you cross that you will reach the main area and people who are not very fond of climbing stairs will be disappointed as there are a lot of stairs to climb.

“Truly a lovers paradise”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This place easily accessible from Panaji by car or by city bus. Often seen in hindi films, this place really is crowded by lovers in pairs. A nice place to visit.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

This is not exactly a beach as you cannot venture into the water here or sands. Its a raised platform where you can stand and have a view of the sea.

“Symbol of love but not good place to enjoy”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Pros:
1) Near to Panjim (Panaji) so no transportation and food problem
2) Early morning scene is good especially from light house.
3) Symbol of a great love story
Cons:
1) Its rocky, not wide beach so you cant sit and relax. Simply you cant enjoy that much here

“A Great Story”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Not mine, but the sad love story of Dona Paula. Be sure to check it out when you go there to see the cliff where the lovers jumped off. It's a very cool place but there are a lot of hawkers and stands selling chotchkes. Try to go early morning for sunrise before the crowds.
