To the south of Arambol lies the serene Mandrem Beach. A rocky cliff jutting out into the sea is all that separates Mandrem from Arambol beach. A small rivulet runs parallel to the shoreline bisecting the beach into two halves, giving it a distinct geographical identity. The shacks along the beach have built small wooden bridges to allow visitors to cross the rivulet. The fine sand, warm waters and plentiful solitude makes this beach one of Goa’s most beautiful.
Being a quiet beach one can even see white-bellied fish eagles that live in the casuarina trees at the beach. Sometimes even the famous Olive Ridley marine turtles nest here during the season.
Things to do: The Mandrem beach is a beautiful deserted beach offering a relaxing time at the tiny shacks the dot the place. For the adventure lovers, watersports and parasailing is on offer. One can even find a market area known as Madlamaz-Mandrem, where you can shop, drink and dine. People usually walk up or hire scooters to get to this place.
Location: North Goa, 27 kilometers from Mapusa and 39 kilometers from Panjim. The closest railway station is Thivim.
