Colva beach is the most popular among the south Goa Beaches. It is located a few kilometers south of Dabolim Airport. It is close to the commercial city – Madgaon, that Goa travelers know better as the railhead in the state.

The beach has fine sand that is also whiter compared to the beaches popular in the north. This beach gets a lot of tourists during the season. And is a hub for various water sports like water scooters, boat rides, and paragliding. Usual amenities like eateries, safety, and accommodations including luxury Hotels and Portuguese era Goa homestays are all along the stretch of beach within walkable distance and or at short distances away.

Popular South Goa Beach

Colva beach is part of a long stretch of south Goa beaches extending from Cansaulim to Betul about 20 km’s in a straight line. For beach walking, this is a big attraction. As it offers a unique ‘just can’t get lost’ opportunity to them. You can walk on quiet and empty stretches that are punctuated with beaches like this one filled with people. While on holidays if you like the quieter beaches, we recommend a rather less crowded beach nearby – Utorda beach.

Viewing Sunset sitting while enjoying local food in the shacks, after all, the exhausting activities are what the memories are going to be made of. Especially for those who do not live on a sea-shore.

We recommend a visit beach to this beach when you are on holidays in the state. To soak in the Sun, Sand, and the sea. The memorable experience they create together as the sun bids goodbye for the day.
