About Miramar Beach in Goa
Only a short walk away from the hubbub of downtown Panaji, the golden sands of Miramar Beach in Goa are the ideal playground for the locals and tourists alike. Being only three kilometers from Panaji city, the beach is the most crowded beach in Goa. Previously named Porta de Gaspar Dias or Gasper Dias Beach by the Portuguese settlers, now it is popularly called Miramar beach. This beach in Panaji is also a famous spot to celebrate local festivals in Goa. Besides water sports, the beach is also a popular destination for morning and evening walks. While most of the beaches in Goa are tourist-oriented beaches with a host of facilities, Miramar Beach in Goa does not offer such kind of luxury. There are a few but good shacks by the beach, souvenir shops, and restaurants near Miramar beach. If you wish to enjoy a beach day away from the regular crowds in Goa, head to Miramar beach on a fine, sunny day. Make sure to carry along the beach-day essentials such as sunscreen, hats, and towels.
Towards the north of the beach, you will find the meeting point of Mandovi River and the Arabian Sea. Take a walking tour along the stretch and spot the fishermen doing their job. As the sun sets, the skyline looks gorgeous and appealing. There are a few good five-star bars that offer upscale dining and a casino that offers a host of entertainment.
