Cola Beach, Goa Overview

Cola beach, also known as 'Khola' beach, is one of the hidden gems of South Goa. Located in the Canacona area, the golden sand beach is peppered with volcanic boulders. The beach does not receive many visitors as it is off the beaten path, hidden by thickly overgrown hills, with a decent stretch of a rather rocky terrain to be crossed before arriving at this natural paradise. This makes Cola Beach perfect for sunbathers.

Cola Beach is divided into North Cola and South Cola with a small hill separating the two. It is joined by a river in the middle which is known as the Blue Lagoon or Emerald Lagoon because of its clear green colour. The calm water here is perfect for swimming. Cola Beach also offers magical sunsets as the landscape of the beach reflects the sunrays in a unique way. There are very few shacks at Cola Beach and most of the eating places are located inside the resorts.

How To Reach Cola Beach

There is no public transport that leads directly to the beach. One will have to hire a private taxi from the Dabolim airport (60 km away) or the Canacona Railway station (12 km) to reach this beach. It is advisable to hire a taxi over renting a vehicle, as the roads are quite rough and the path can be confusing to those unfamiliar with the area.

If you are attempting to reach Cola beach through a rented vehicle, travel on the MDR49 towards Agonda, and take a right after the Parvem bus stop. An easier route can be found on NH66, which is longer but has a sign that points in the general direction of Cola beach as one travels from the north to the south of Goa. Keep following that road until you reach the beach.
