Discovered in the far north of the state, Morjim presents one of the more wild expanses of sand for you to embrace during your Goa holidays. Backed by a smattering of inviting beach bars and shacks, the beach’s most famous characteristic is its role as a nesting ground for olive ridley sea turtles.
A little further south of Morjim sits Baga, showcasing an entirely different atmosphere to that of its neighbour. Isolation is swapped for infrastructure, resulting in a fantastically-vibrant atmosphere defined by an unbroken line of aromatic and welcoming beach shacks, all placed beside a long stretch of golden sand.
Candolim & Calangute
Among the most popular beaches for British tourists spending their holidays in Goa, Candolim and Calangute’s long strips of golden sand result in one of the state’s most inviting stretches of coastline. There’s a very friendly atmosphere resonating throughout the resorts, best discovered over a delicious Goan curry in one of the eye-catching beach shacks.
Encapsulating the languid and relaxed ideology of Goa, stunning Sinquerim is a sedate but beautiful place to lay your beach towel. The beach itself is decorated with a small collection of beach shacks, dotted along a long curve of sand, backed by towering palm trees.
Anjuna & Vagator
While these beaches may not be considered the most spectacular and expansive stretches of sand in Goa, there is a beauty and charm to these cosy little coastal spots. Small curves of sand are backed by steep cliffs and verdant pines, while the sunsets enjoyed here are among some of the finest in Goa.
