Palolem Beach, nicknamed Paradise Beach, is the southernmost stretch of sandy coastline in Goa and one of the most stunning in all of India. The crescent-shaped cove, with its clear turquoise waters and palm trees lining white sand, was once one of the most tranquil spots in Goa, but the influx of tourists in recent years has brought with it vendors, restaurants, bars, clubs and hotels.
Today the stretch of beach has become somewhat of a Bohemian haven with plenty of inexpensive dining options and a lively nightlife. Palolem Beach’s clubs gave birth to the silent party trend, where partiers dance to the beat of music coming through a set of headphones wirelessly connected to a DJ system.
If your idea of the perfect beach includes fewer people and a little more peace, taking a stroll down the beach will bring you to a more deserted stretch of sand.
