Beaches in Goa  >>  Agonda Beach

If you continue driving towards Panaji from Palolem, the next beach is Agonda. Itís long and lonely, fringed with palms and casuarinas and dominated by a large hill to the south. Itís not safe to swim out too far as here on this beach. There are very few facilities available here and you are needed to carry all the essentials.

Agonda is a three-kilometer long beautiful cove of white sand, safely secluded in the palms. There are no tourists, no souvenir stalls, no restaurants, nothing. Just the trees, the beach, the big beautiful ocean and you. It also makes for a great day trip from Colva and Covelossim. For real adventure, hire a tent and camp for the night, listening to the crashing of the sea waves.

 
Excursions Ė Cabo De Rama
Not far from Agonda beach is Cabo de Rama, untouched by most of the visitors in this region. The atmosphere of the fort creates a sense of history and drama that very few would fail to appreciate. The fort is named after Rama, hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana. According to the local legends, Rama stayed here with his wife Sita during the period of 12-year exile.

Transportation
It is really difficult to reach Agonda Beach because it falls a bit away from the main road and no local buses ply here. It also gives an element of solitude at the beach, as you wonít find many tourists here. The best way to reach this beach is by a scooter or motors bike.
