Agonda beach is quiet, but this is just a short journey and you will find yourself pretty much alone. It is incredibly beautiful and serene. If you have hired a scooter use it to get part of the way here. Otherwise it is a bit of a walk.

Between Palolem and Agonda beach there are interesting rock formation to view, the Palolem side has a large hotel so can be busier and more touristy, view the formations then retreat to Agonda for a more relaxed affair!

It was out of sheer boredom that i decided to explore the beach and came across these rocks. While sitting here I encountered a calm and peace like nothing I had ever experienced on that beach.. The waves gentling crashing against these rocks and the whole serenity of the moment made me just be still and sit quietly there.

Interesting spot though nothing special. The eroded rocks are a good location for some quiet sunbathing if you can find the right spot.

Away from the shacks this is a special place to sit and watch the waves or the sun set. Total relaxation, go at low tide to enjoy it at it's best

Not a very popular spot. Quiet, clean and great fun for kids! Just make sure you go during low tide.

There are many hills in between Palolem and Agonda Beaches. The first one is the Honeymoon Beach which is a small beach isolated where none stay. The second one is the butterfly beach which looks like a butterfly. There is rock formation which looks like a Tortoise. It can be seen from sea while leaving Honeymoon beach.

Loved this corner of Agonda beach, it is enchanting place, both for mornings and for sunset...but be careful, better do not my mistake to swim near rocks when waters are muddy from receding tide...I got really badly burned bu huge jelly fish. Iam good now, but experience was somewhat terrifying
