“Reminiscent of a Fish Market”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

If you are talking about the sand-n-sea then the beach is magnificent, but it is always over crowded just like a fish market in any town in India. You are literally brushing shoulders against each-other at the beach. This robs the pleasure of enjoying the beach. Frankly speaking all beaches are marvelous sites and look alike so don't waste your time here as one will not enjoy the beach as one expects when one visits the beach. I didn't even feel like taking a snap of the beach as it would only show thousands of people in the background knee deep in the sea.

“Amazing place to be.....”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

It was our first visit to Goa and we were surprised to see that the beach was so clean. No litter or garbage. WOW.....In the evening, the place comes alive with restaurants putting out chairs and tables outside.....and if u are lucky( like we were), we had dinner while the water touched our feet.....:))

Nice place to be during the day, even better during the night with lots of offers from restaurants to bars.

Parking can be a headache!

“great place to swim n relax”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

great place to relax by the sea... a lot of shacks dot the area so have lots of variety to choose from... sea slope is very gentle so you can really wade out far.. though not recommended for non swimmers or those who are not strong swimmers as the currents are strong..
