Spotless, quiet - you might find it a little too quiet

Absolutely lovely beach, you can wade out in the quiet water for 50 feet and still only be up to your chin in water. Beach shacks offer good value food choices but they are a... read more

The beach was filthy. There was insufficient life guard involvement and I was hesitant to put my kids in the water who are both competent swimming but the beach was not equipped to deal with any emergencies in my view. The water is clean but the sad part is that the beach isn't. Maybe this was just the part we... More

Varca Beach is quiet, clean and beautiful. We saw cattle and water buffalo walking about and enjoyed some of the best beach weather we have ever experienced. In love!

One of the few beaches in Goa where you wont find any hawkers. A couple of food shacks..and dats it. Most visitors are from nearby resorts..Zuri, Mahindra etc.. Find your own spot and laze around. Quieter/cleaner/safer than the more popular Benaulim or nearby spots.

Go walking or swimming or watch fishermen empty their catch . You can get rides from here to watch dolphins inside the sea . Rate is rs 500 per person in the peak season . Its worth a watch to sail right in between the dolphins . Over all a nice quite place away from the rush .

Varca beach seems endless. You are able to see mountains in the distance to the left and sandy horison to the right with a backdrop of both coconut and fir trees. The sand is fine and white. There are many crab holes which are inhabited and you can see the critters moving about in the evening. The sea is clean... More
