Palolem Beach

Welcome to "Paradise", welcome to Palolem. The beach was christened "Paradise Island" largely because of its unspoilt character and addictive beauty. Palolem is crescent-shaped running 1.61 kms with both ends jutting out majestically to the sea. The whole view of the beach with its clear blue waters, white sands and coconut palms can be seen from either side of the beach. The beach was discovered by foreign tourists and today you will find plenty of them residing in cute little shacks along with the local fishermen along the beach.

Flowing from the northern end of the beach is a fresh water stream on which a tiny island sits squat. The island is easily accessible by swimming. The beach is also famous for dolphin cruises and fishing trips and the stone sculpture created by an American Conceptual and Land art artist Jacek Tylicki called the "Monkey Stone".

The beach was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster The Bourne Supremacy. It lies in South Goa, 2 kms from the town of Chaudi, over 70 kms from Panaji. The best time to visit is between November and March.

How To Reach: You will get buses from Margao daily, otherwise you can hire a taxi and auto-rickshaws from there. Canacona Railway Junction is just 10 minutes drive. Alternatively, from Dabolim Airport you can hire a taxi, and for local transportation, hire a moped or bicycle which are available on rent at the main street.

Where To Stay: Palolem is famous for its coco huts. You will find plenty of these lining the beach from October until May. The two most popular ones are Camp San Fransisco and Cirians. Tents, guesthouses and simple rooms in the local family homes are available for lodging, but they offer only basic facilities.

Activities: Most visitors come to Palolem for a lazy time but there are lots of activities that can be tried here like the dolphin cruises and fishing trips, otherwise you can even experience local Goan culture and lifestyle at the village. If not, try a bit of yoga under the palm trees or an Ayurvedic massage. If you are in the mood for some dancing, wait till sunset and head to the loudest and wildest disco. The Silent Noise Parties, Cafe Del Mar, Cocktails & Dreams are few of the most rocking clubs but the Butterfly Beach, which can be reached only by a boat, is also worth trying.

As for food, there are plenty of tiny shacks offering menu ladened with treats from Goan to international cuisine, feni and chilled beer, and the CortiGoa Wildlife Park is also worth a visit.
