With clear waters meeting a silver sand shore populated by rows of swaying coconut palm trees the Galgibaga beach is one of Goa's most scenic hidden gems. Along with its unspoilt natural charm, the Galgibaga beach is also one of the three beaches of Goa known to be a nesting site for the Olive Ridley turtles, a process protected and preserved by the efforts and programs of the state. Enclosures have been made and are monitored to understand and conserve the nesting patterns of the turtles. This pristine beach has often been termed as one of the cleanest beaches in India.
The kilometre-long coastline, coated with a dense cover of vegetation and the varied topography, sees an interesting twist of the land near the southern end, where the Galgibaga river joins the Arabian Sea. This twisted area, with the green hillock at the back and the blue Arabian Sea ahead, captures the heart of every passerby and onlooker, with the most unforgettable view. For travellers looking for the original charm of Old Goa, with its virgin, serene beaches, Galgibaga would be a major contender for the top spot on the list of destinations. Walking along its serpentine coastline punctuated with boulders amidst the sheets of glimmering sands is probably the best way to spend the day by this seaside delight.
