Goa Beaches
Sinquerim BeachThe exotic beaches of Goa are unarguably the most popular tourist attraction of the state. Stretching across 105 km of Konkan coast, these beaches provide a myriad range of choices for the visitors. These virgin stretches of sand are known for the serenity and a vibrant mood prevalent in surroundings and the hearts of locals. Some of the beaches are located very far from human habitation and provide very limited or no facility for accommodation. Other ones are in a position to provide even ultra modern comforts including Internet cafes, massage centers, gyms, swimming pools and night clubs. It may be sound somehow confusing for the vacationers to decide what to choose and what to leave. But that's not the case. You may plan very easily and get whole of your body tanned in sun-rich beaches. The capital city of Panaji and the next major city of Margao may work as base points, and rest of the beaches may be visited in a stretch. The most famous beach of Calangute lies in the north of Panaji. The beaches in South are lonelier. Some of the most popular beaches in Goa are as follows.
Anjuna Beach
Anjuna Beach This beach is famous for its fluorescent painted palm trees and infamous full moon parties. Located 8 km west of Mapusa, Goa is at its most 'alternative' here. It started attracting the tourists since the 70's for offering a memorable experience of dancing and lying on the beach while slurping the tropical fruit. Enjoy a full day tour to the famous flea market while browsing in the area.

Baga Beach
Baga beach is the most suitable place for the vacationers preferring some isolation to watch the sun set. Located 10 km west of Mapusa, Baga is basically an extension of Calangute. It is even difficult for the locals to differentiate between the two. Basic difference between this beach on the northern tip with the rest is that this it is marginally more varied and picturesque. It lies in the lee of a rocky, wooded headland.
Dona Paula
It is the place where Goa's two famous rivers meet the Arabian Sea. This secluded bay offers a fine view of Marmagao Harbour. Located 7 km from Panjim, Dona Paula is nestled in south of a hammer-shaped headland dividing Zuari and Mandovi estuaries. This former fishing village and today's commercialized beach resort is an ideal locale to relax and soak the sun.

Calangute Beach
Calangute Beach You can reach Calangute in merely 45 minute bus ride from Panjim. Goa's busiest and most commercialized resort, Calangute Beach is the flagship of Goa's bid for a bigger slice of India's package-tourist pie. This peaceful fishing village became the favourite haunt of the hippies during 70's and 80's.

Benaulim Beach
Lying in amidst the heart of Colva Beach, Benaulim Beach is 7 km west of Margao. Named as Benaulim by the Portuguese, it looks like a large fishing joint where the tourists can easily become gourmets and try out various culinary delights of the seafood. The sea is also safe for swimming, generally jellyfish-free and the village area near beach side itself boast a few serviceable bars and restaurants. You are served the most succulent and competitively priced seafood in Goa here.
Cavelosim Beach
Located at the coast road 11 km south of Colva, Cavelosim Beach is the last major settlement in southwest Salcete. While touring Cavelosim, plan a visit to Mabor, South Goa's largest and most obtrusive package tourist enclave. The holiday inns and beach resorts here combine to create a holiday camp ambiance. These are crammed together on to a narrow spit of dunes between the surf and estuary.
