Palolem Beach

Palolem Beach in South Goa is known for many things, gorgeous sunsets, tiny islands, great swimming and coco huts but we discovered that there is so much more to this beach than mere sun and sand. The Palolem Beach stretch is not very long, a comfortable walking distance if you’re in the mood to kick off the flip flops and walk in the water occasionally stepping on tiny little crabs along the way. The first thing that takes your breath away here is the pristine beauty: the palm fringe stretches almost through the entire length of the beach changing color from bright green to olive green depending on the time of the day.

Things to do: Take a walk to Butterfly Island or take a boat rise to the other islands. The nightlife at Palolem is always buzzing with dance music, live music, reggae, and rock until the early hours of the morning, if not through speakers at least through headphones at the unique Silent Noise Parties. Silent Noise parties are held every Saturday at Neptune Point, the rocky peninsula on the southern side of the beach.

Location: South Goa, 43 kilometers (27 miles) from Margao and 76 kilometers (47 miles) from Panaji. The closest railway stations are Margao and Canacona.
