Colva Beach is the most popular among the south Goa Beaches. It is located a few kilometers south of Dabolim Airport. But far away from the newly built Mopa Airport in the north Goa district.

Popular South Goa Beach

Colva Beach is part of a long stretch of south Goa beaches extending from Cansaulim to Betul about 20 km in a straight line. Take a look at Google Maps, and zero in on the beach you will realize the stretch of the beach. 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 holiday if you like the quieter beaches, we recommend a rather less crowded beach nearby – Utorda Beach.

Sunset Time

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

We recommend a visit beach to this beach when you are on holiday 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.
