Palolem Beach is probably the most scenic of Goas Beaches. Arambol up in the north does have it’s fresh water lake and other beaches are certainly less crowded like Agonda beach, which is a little further North. But Palolem is a hut filled riot of colour where you can relax, swim in the sea, eat gorgeous food at reasonable prices and get a massage afterwards.
We headed over the souther fringe of the beach around the corner to where it gets a little quieter. Here you can get a bungalow for a song and we even found one place with wireless, sadly booked up as I would have moved there for the lovely bay view and the fact that I could have caught up with some work whilst sipping on a kingfisher beer.
