"Serenity in North Goa"

Querim Beach, Goa Overview

Although the northern beaches of Goa are its 'Party Capital' there are still certain beaches that break the norm and offer serenity and calmness. One such beach is, of course, Querim or Keri, located on the northernmost tip of Goa. Right next to an old temple known at 'Ajoba Temple' sprawls the golden-sanded Querim Beach. Lying at the mouth of Terekhol river as it joins the Arabian Sea. The Terekhol Fort lies just on the shores of this magnificent beach and can be reached via a ferry from the beach itself. Querim Beach isn't that popular as compared to its counterparts such as Arambol or Mandrem, which is why there are just a handful of shacks that offer local cuisines such as Fish Fry, Vindaloo, or Sorpotel. If you would like to experience the nightlife of Goa, Querim may not be the best option. However, if your idea of Goa involves sitting by the beach with a chilled beer and solitude and calmness, Querim Beach is the perfect place!

Commonly called Keri Beach, the coastline is bordered by rows of Casuarina trees, a constant defence against the threat of shore erosion. This area is a hotspot for fishing activity, making the Querim village an important fishing village to Goa. The beautiful Arambol Mountain can be seen in the background. This pristine beach serves as the perfect escape for those looking to get away from the commercial side of Goa and revisit its natural charm.

More on Querim Beach


Those looking for the backpacker life can opt to stay at Dreamcatchers hostel or No Name hostel, while those looking for a slightly more luxurious vacation can choose to stay in the neighbouring Arambol, which offers many more lodging options for tourists. However, when it comes to staying in Querim, there aren't many options available. It is thus recommended that you stay at the neighbouring Arambol Beach from where Querim is just 20 mins away by road.

Being one of the calmest and laidback beaches in Goa, Querim isn't particularly known for its water sports activities. However, during the high season between November to March you can find a few kite surfers here. You can also choose to spend your time at one of the beach shacks on the shore. There is also an option of paragliding on the hill adjacent to the beach. There are various operators offering the activity in Querim as well as Arambol beaches. You can also undertake a small trek over the rocks and hills adjacent to the beach. If none of these is your cup of tea, you can always chill at the beach on one of the shacks. Some of the more popular ones include Dolphins, Omkar Beach Shack, God's Gift Shack etc. However, keep in mind that these are very basic and offer good food and beer at a pocket-friendly price. If you are looking for a more gourmet experience of eating, you can always head to Armabol Beach, which has far more options when it comes to cuisines and culinary experiences. The area is also rich with the presence of various temples such as Ajoba Temple and Ravalnath Temple, where you can get the true taste of the local culture. Querim is also the beach closest to the Tiracol or Terekhol Fort; you can take a ferry from here to visit the fort and be back the same day. Although the fort has been converted to a heritage hotel, you can still look around the fort and maybe even catch a meal at the restaurant. One of the best and lesser-known ways to truly enjoy the taste of Querim Beach is to take a walk through dense Arambol Forests behind the Sweet Water Lake at Paliem or Kalacha Beach to reach the hillock next to Querim. Descending this hillock will take you right on the shores of this fantastic beach getaway!

If you travelling to Querim from Arambol, Stick to the Pernem-Agarwada-Morjim road of NH66 until you reach the village of Pernem. From here, take the MDR17 onto the Querim-Arambol-Agarwada road till you reach the beach. There are various narrow lanes that you will pass through, shaded by mango, jackfruit, and coconut trees. You will also be riding alongside the majestic Terekhol River until you reach the beach. The beach is around 50 km away from Panjim, it is thus recommended that you have your own vehicle instead of relying on public transport.
