Colva Beach, Goa

What was once a sleepy fishing village and a hippie hang-out in the sixties, is now a resort town named Colva. Crowded with day-trippers and package tourists, Colva Beach in South Goa is a popular spot to enjoy water sports and get some fresh air. It offers a laid-back vibe which lacks in most of the beaches in North Goa. Lined with food shacks and cafes, the main beach is an ideal place to watch the sun go down in the Arabian Sea.

Colva Beach stretches for 2.4 km of powder white sand and is lined with coconut palms which extend as far as Bogmalo Beach along the South Goa's coastline. At the town centre, Colva Beach Circle is located around most of the hotels, resorts, and shops.

      Deceptive sales practice from just click karo. Had to write several emails to have them deliver on the promised package. Hotel was nice and customer service experience at hotel was exceptional. South Goa tour was a big flop. Don’t recommend the tour to anyone. Get a scooter on rent for 300 a day and explore Goa on your own.
