Baina Beach is a relatively new stretch of sand on the Goa circuit, and as such, remains tranquil despite its growing interest from tourists. It lies on the edges of the city of Vasco da Gama, just a short distance from the international airport, making it a great stop if you’re short of time or don’t like the idea of being too far from the centre of town.
Stretching for approximately one kilometre in length, Baina beach is also quite wide, and flat, so is good for games of beach cricket. The only obstacle you might face if you do are attractive brightly-coloured fishing boats pulled above the high tide line.
A popular swimming beach, kayaking, paragliding, snorkelling and jet ski rentals are all possibilities. So is undersea walking, where air is pumped into a helmet as you walk with a weight-belt along the sea floor.
