'Paradise' Beach

  based on 2 reviews   write a review

Palolem, India
'Paradise' Beach - My children realised how fortunate they were when they befriended a group of orphans who had never seen the sea before. Palolem is very child friendly
'Paradise' Beach - My beach accommodation (Coco Hut) 500Rps per night.
'Paradise' Beach - Beautiful little coves with accommodation to the south of Palolem main beach, for those looking for seclusion.
'Paradise' Beach - Lots of wildlife, unspoilt beauty if you take a boat trip down the estuary running just north of the beach
'Paradise' Beach - Personal yoga & meditation tuition for those who want it. I couldn't suggest a more tranquil or spiritual place to try this.

'The stuff that dreams are made of!' That's the only way i can describe powdery white sands, turquoise sea, Lush green forests climbing enormous peaks framing a tiny slice of paradise.

If you've ever seen the movie 'The Beach' then you'll welcome India's version. At almost the Southern tip of Goa, Palolem Beach plays host to a multitude of accommodations, bars and restaurants of all genre. Ideal for a honeymoon location, at the northern end of the beach one can find luxury beach huts with sunken baths and pristigne white bed linen, restaurants that serve Champagne and personal yoga tuition. At the Southern end of the beach you are likely to be greeted by backpackers sitting peacefully in a beachfront bar playing chess or trading information on travels and experiences.

Beach huts or coco huts (as they are often referred as) are the usual accommodation and at the southern end of the beach, can be found, after haggling, for approximately 300 Rps per night (£3.00) The more luxurious huts at the northern end of the beach are approximately 1500 Rps (£15.00) per night.

After dark, the ambience is complimented by the tranquil wash of sea meeting sand combined with chinking glasses and the melodic euphoric sounds of the nearby bars, often open all night. Plaolem is a spiritual, harmonious sanctuary where all cultures meet and greet with love and friendship.


1) Try Brandons for middle of the range Coco huts. Basic but clean and comfortable with fans, balcony, private bathroom and shower - approximately 500Rps beach front.

2) Note all beach front properties are temporary, so they are taken down out of season including restaurants and accommodation.

3) Child safe although be aware of strong sea currents, roaming dogs and mosquito infestations.

4) Haggle on boat trips. You can expect to pay approximately 150 Rps per person for a 2 hour journey. If you catch your own crab, local cooks/chefs will cook and serve them for you Goan style.
