We were staying near Palolem/Patnem and a lady we met by our hotel pool said she didn't like Agonda - dirty and there were rumours of untreated sewage in the sea. We went there twice anyway on our scooter and really liked the South end of the beach. The waves were much bigger than at Patnem and we managed a bit of body surfing. At the South end of the beach it curves right round and is much more sheltered - a very pleasant walk. The beach and the road behind it, lined with shops and various accommodation options, seemed pretty clean and tidy to us and we certainly didn't fall ill after swimming in the sea. We did wonder about staying in Agonda on a future Goa trip but the more we checked it out the more we thought that for us staying near Patnem and visiting Agonda was a better option. Of the beach hut places we checked out White Sand looked good, although it is at the N end of the beach, with dirt road access.

Agonda beach is beautiful, and so nice and quiet. Such a nice place to relax, do some yoga and read a book. The only minus for me is that I didn't find the sea very nice for swimming. But everyone else, from toddlers to senior citizens seem to find it perfectly alright, so it might just be me.

Went Last year and again this year. Lovely beach, peaceful, Some of the shops are begining to persuade people to stop and shop which is a bit of a shame but overall doesnt affect the overall charm of this place.

After visiting many beaches in Sou Goa I have to say this is one of the best.
The golden sand is soft and clean and the water is gentle and clear. There are nice bars and restaurants to choose from.
The beach is very quiet and unlike paloem doesn't have any annoying sellers hassling you.
Well worth visiting and there are some good beach huts epically at H20 which are worth visiting.

Clear water. Clean Sand. Palm trees. Almost nobody to be seen. Perfect romantic setting if you love the secluded environs!
