Lovely beach with a few beach shacks. Warm Arabian sea and a few stray dogs, but they do not bother you at all.

beautiful beach dotted with Goan wooden fishing boats with plenty of well rated food shacks . A lot of stray dogs but all seem clean and non threatening in day light. Life guard areas clearly marked but swimming unsafe during monsoon season.
