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.
