Beautiful beach resort. Mostly soft sand, warm sea, good facilities and beach front restaurants. Some excellent guest houses on or near the beach front, ranging from Indian to western styles, some with music playing at reasonable volumes. Check out the wonderful peninsula bar, cut off from the mainland …. LucyHope wrote a review Mar Manchester, United Kingdom 53 contributions 9 helpful votes.
Hippy paradise. We got a tuk tuk from Agonda to Palolem which was a fun experience in itself! We love the peace and quiet of Agonda beach but we wanted to mix it up a bit so came to Palolem for a livelier party atmosphere. The place was heaving with both locals and tourists, roads filled with …. Coventry, United Kingdom 87 contributions 36 helpful votes.
Three days stay. Enjoyed the three days we had in Palolem, the beach is clean the people are polite and helpful. Restaurants we used were clean and food good. We went on a boat ride around the river, Fed the eagles and the boatman explained everything to us, and answered our questions. Date of experience: February Very busy.
Quite busy lots of boats and guys wanting to sell you trips!! More shacks to the south side than the north worth a short visit would I go back probably not. The beach attracts many international tourists, mainly during the winter season between November and March. It is considered to be one of the region's most beautiful beaches. Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself.
Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea. The depth of the sea increases gradually, being shallowest at the northern end of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast. The nearest airport is Dabolim Airport , around 67 km away. The nearest railway station is at Canacona , which can be reached from the major Madgoan junction railway station in just 30 mins.
The nearest KTC depot is at Canacona. Our cozy well maintained farmhouse is hidden between coconut trees in the ancient part of South Goa in the working organic farm territory. Rooms perfect, staff attentive, live tasteful music brilliant and food incredible including high class western dishes.
John the owner is a delightful person with a great sense of humour. Really looking forward to taking my young son next year, safe environment on Palolem beach. I only got to stay 3 days but I wished it had been more. This is a wonderful, peaceful place with a fantastic staff. If you enjoy sitting beachside sipping a cup of coffee with the ocean breeze while barefoot…then this is the place to be. Once you get there is really hard to leave. We stayed in the beach front bungalow and while simple it was the most enjoyable stay in a 6 week holiday.
The entire set up is great, from the extensive and very well made dining options to the cocktails and wine it had it all. The beach was beautiful and hearing the ocean as you go to sleep cannot be beaten.
