A white sand paradise in South Goa, Palolem Beach is approximately 38 km from Madgaon in Cancona and is among the most favourite attractions for travellers visiting Goa. Palolem Beach is known for its calm and peaceful vibes, as opposed to some of the popular beaches of Goa. The highlight of Palolem Beach is the Dolphin spotting cruise.
Other main attractions at Palolem are the clean shoreline, beach shacks and a few souvenir shops. Cossetted within lofty highlands on either side, the Palolem Beach is adorned with tranquil surroundings. The entire stretch of the beach can be explored on foot in 15-20 minutes. Palolem Beach is also known for its silent noise parties.
A hub of outdoor activities, Palolem is a fun-filled destination in Goa. Its location and the diversity of its marine life ensure that visitors have a great time exploring the beach as well as the activities around.
If you are looking for a good swim, the northern end of the beach is perfect. The surface is quite shallow and the current isn't too fast either, an average swimmer too can have fun exploring. However, don't swim out too far as the depth of the ocean floor gradually increases making way for strong currents and unsteady slopes.
2. Scuba Diving
How wonderful would it be to find yourself right in the midst of the vibrant shades of blue? Palolem Beach is one of the few beaches in the country where this activity is enjoyable and fruitful. Try your chance and dive into the waters of Palolem as you visit the beach.
As the beach finds itself in a cove, the waters here are quite peaceful hence you can have a great kayaking adventure. Moreover, it's always useful to explore the sea. A quick suggestion, hire a kayak during the morning time so that you get a chance to experience the tranquillity of sea in its best form. Usually, the cost of Kayaking is INR 300 per hour.
4. Dolphin Spotting
Try your luck, hire a boat and go for Dolphin spotting. An hour trip costs INR 800, so it would be feasible to tag along with a group. Again, visiting in the morning might bring you some fortune!
