Kakolem Beach

"The Beach among Cliffs"

Kakolem Beach, Goa Overview

One of the most secluded and beautiful beaches of Goa, Kakolem Beach, also called Tiger Beach, is a nature’s treat with its majestic cliffs and the rich vegetation. Located around 7km away from Cabo De Rama beach in South Goa, it is a beach hidden between tall cliffs and shaded coconut trees.

Being hidden from the public view, the way to Kakolem beach is quite tricky. You will have to climb down a small cliff near the Vagon bus stop to reach here, which falls on the way to Betul Beach from Canacona. The unruly wilderness, the quiet and the mystical surroundings are a major lure for all who are looking for a unique and a serene beach vacay. 

This beach is mostly deserted except for one resort on top of the cliff. Thus, it is dangerous to swim here due to the lack of supervision or rescue service. Should you choose to jump in nonetheless, don't go in too far and watch out for the drops. There are steep steps across the side of the cliff where one may descend to the water. There are no restaurants or shacks here, and there is just the one resort called Palm Discoveries where travellers may stay and dine at this untamed beach.
