Away from the crowds, noise and crazy vendors of Baga, Kalangute, Anjuna lies the clean, simple and peace loving beach of Mandrem.
Definitely a place for relaxing, there are no water sports here, but a good beach to enjoy food, drinks and shacks, away form crowd.
Cleaner and less crowded than surrounding beaches with very nice restaurant’s that serve food and drinks to your sunbed. Beach has lifeguards and is cleaned daily for the trash.
Shore is flat especially on low tide so it is very nice to walk. There are deeper parts for swimming at some locations and distance. Surfboards etc. for rent and classes are available but the waves break so evenly that it is not much fun for advanced surfers. A sup-board is more recommended here, you might even have a chance to see wild dolphins while supping.
This is absolutely a pristine beach located in the north Goa. Also, the beach is mostly frequented by international tourists and some Indians. Here you get the real fun of the white sand beach and swimming in the sea. Its a safe beach for kids . The shacks offer excellent service and don’t differentiate between tourists. Food served is delicious and the service is also excellent. Lifegaurds keep a watch throughout and offer safety advice to avoid rocks on the left side.
These beaches are among the best you can come across in Goa. For a change, you can avoid crowded Calangute, Anjuna , Baga and come here for a serene relaxing experience. You can only get decent people and tourists relaxing.Also, due to relatively few people around, this is one beach in Goa where you can wear a bikini to have a cool dip in the sea, without being gawked at.
No paper cups/bags, plastic bottles, and other waste strewn about the beach, not many hawkers selling their wares, and hence not much of a disturbance.
The water here is crystal clear and is very clean. There are a few shacks on the shore and serve decent food. In the evenings, the wind as well as wave currents are very strong and parasailing, surfing can be good option. If you are looking for high-octane entertainment and crowds of people, this is not a beach advised. All in all, a beach to enjoy some tranquility, good food, laze around and enjoy the lapping of the waves and have a soulful experience..
