Located in Goa’s southern district, Colva Beach has a length of just under 2.5 kilometres. Comprising soft pale sand, it is predominantly sought out by domestic Indian holidaymakers, with international beachgoers making up only a small proportion of its visitors.

Popular during the annual holiday periods, Colva Beach is watched over by lifeguards, who also mark out the safe areas to swim with flags. You don’t have to go far to find accommodation, including both guest houses and higher-end hotels, while there are also numerous places to eat, drink and relax. They range from simple beachside shacks to bars and restaurants lining nearby roads, although nightlife at Colva Beach is minimal.

There are plenty of things to do at Colva Beach, with water sports such as paragliding, snorkelling, jet skiing, and speed boat rides all available. Facing west, Colva beach is also a great place to enjoy Goa’s stunning sunsets.
