Nice crowd here, morning visits are must at this beach. Has nearby markets and a lot of eating/drinking joints, almost all are made like shacks. Candolim is a better area to visit in Goa.

Visited Candolim after a very intense tour of India to chill out before heading back home. Really good beach with lots of cool shacks to meet new people and have a decent meal. The average age is 60's. Arambol would be more suitable for a younger crowd.

Having travelled a bit now and as beaches go I feel I must make comparisons with other ones I have visited far and wide. First impressions on the way to the beach from the road where not good, litter, broken bottles and piles of junk to negotiate, the beach itself was not much better with bottles, plastic cups and other...

Lovely clean ( comparitively) beach, gets less busy towards fort end and good for watersports. Make sure you don't get got by touts trying to sell tickets for boat trips, always go to huts or they will try to charge you a percentage for taking you to a ticket hut😡

On walking to the shacks, the dunes are very dirty with lots of rubbish randomly scattered, including glass and hard plastic items. Behind the beach shacks too - rubbish is accumulated and looks unsightly to... More
