Palolem Beach

Palolem is about 37 kms from Margao. Just west of Chaudi one of the most enchanting beaches in Goa relatively deserted, with backdrop of Western ghats, situated in Southern Taluka of Canacona. Palolem is Goa's one of the most beautiful and idyllic beach and it has 1.5 km crescent shaped beach. The beach lies on the southern coastline of Goa amidst outstanding natural beauty.
The sweeping crescent of white sand is fringed by a shady rim of coconut palms and the whole beach is hemmed in at either end by rocky crags. It is comparatively fast emerging as a popular spot for day-trippers from Colva and Calangute. Many travellers drift down from the northern beaches to spend days, weeks or even months chilling out here. There is very little development and it's extremely laid-back. Most accommodation is in simple, rickety beach buts or villagers homes, with a handful of more solid guesthouses scattered around.
Palolem Village is nestled in the palms backed from the beach. With the large influx of tourists to the Northern beaches and the resultant increasing commercialisation of these places. Palolem fits the bill and in recent years, more and more tourists have been making a beeline for this palm fringed golden beach.
