Goa, the western world of India is a haven for one of the most beautiful beaches of the country. It’s very unfortunate that all the beaches cannot be included in India tour packages. Only the most famous and visited are included like Calangute, Baga, Vagator, Colva etc. Same way Agonda beach is also one of them. Situated 10 kilometers away from its bustling neighboring beach Palolem, it’s a very quiet beach.
The name of this destination you will never find in tourist maps sold at various shops in Goa. The local villagers as well as the panchayat are very particular about the beach’s popularity status as they don’t want it to become a bustling overcrowded beach like Palolem which is another reason why Agonda is not a part of anyIndia tour packages.
Seashore and sunset: - As a beautiful beach of Goa, its natural beauty is an attraction in itself. The beautiful sun gazing down on the sandy beach, the sparkling sea water and the beautiful landscape giving a feast to your eyes will make you wonder why this beauty is not part of any India tour packages.
Water rides and food mania: - The place is best suited if you are not at all willing to go to office on a Monday as there is no cell phone connectivity to the area. Still you can witness some commercial activities over there like the shacks, restaurants setup on a temporary basis. However everything like this vanishes whenever the local police or the tourist police arrive there for inspection.
