Top 2 beaches in Goa and India 1


Top 2 beaches in Goa and India

Blessed with a very long coastline, Goa has an  almost unbroken sand cover. So, if you have been searching on Google for the best place in India with sun, sand, palm tree lined sea shores and a good decent crowd you ‘ll be pleased to  to know that Goa has 2 of the top 10 beaches ranked in Asia. This is from the list of this year’s awards honouring 343 beaches, including the top 10 in the world and lists for Asia, Africa, Australia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, South America, the South Pacific, the UK and the US.

Three of India’s beaches have featured in the list of top 10 beaches in Asia out of which two are in our beautiful Goa.

Agonda beach (Goa) has been ranked at number four position in the Asia top 10 list, mostly for being wide, quiet, picturesque and a great spot for sunbathing and relaxing with relatively few tourists around, the survey said.

Goa’s Palolem beach has been ranked 8th in the list for its beach hut accommodations.

Stretching between two magnificent head lands, Palolem beach is lined with towering coconut palms and is largely unspoiled. It is inhabited by local fishermen and foreign tourists alike.

1) Agonda Beach

Agonda beach (Goa) has been ranked at number four position in the Asia top 10 list, mostly for being wide, quiet, picturesque and a great spot for sunbathing and relaxing with relatively few tourists around, the survey said. This is a fabulous place for a beach picnic under a beach umbrella. The rocky crag on the southern tip of the beach against an azure sky lends a bit of drama to the serene landscape. Go looking for the bats nesting in trees that line the shore. You can’t miss their black capes and orange-brown faces. It’s located about 37kms from Margao.
