PALOLEM


Palolem is a beautiful palm-fringed cove of white sand situated just 35 kms from Margao in South Goa. This beautiful beach with a soothing aura is also called the 'Paradise Beach'.

It is one of the most enchanting beaches of Goa with a backdrop of the Western Ghats.

This mile long beach, Palolem provides seclusion and idyllic scenery and is lined with swaying coconut palms and is bordered by a pair of rocky crags. As it is still not a very popular beach, it does not provide many facilities for tourists, but the village located nearby has several cafes and souvenir stalls catering to day-trippers and vacationers.

Some of the major activities on Palolem beach can be dolphin watching, swimming, taking leisurely strolls on the beach, sunbathing and shopping. Shopping on the seaside markets of Palolem can be very enjoyable, and the roadside eating joints can offer a splendid meal at a reasonably low price.

At the northern end of the beach is an undeveloped island across a fresh water stream. In low tide one can reach there by just swimming across. The other attractions on this beach are the Dolphin cruises and the fishing trips. These are offered at quite a reasonable rate. The major tourist spots near this beach are Agonda and Chaudi.
