The Beach Guide

Mandrem Beach

Compared to the frenetic pace at the neighbouring traveller / backpacker oriented Arambol and Anjuna, laid-back Mandrem Beach will seem something of a haven of tranquility.

Situated in the North of Goa, Mandrem Beach has 800 meters of clean, white sand which is separated from the village by a shallow creek. Backing the beach are sand dunes and palm trees, and you will see the local fishermen landing their catch here.

This beach is well known for its beachside shacks with sun beds where you can relax and enjoy something to eat and drink while you take in Mandrem’s natural beauty. Beyond are creeks with bridges that you can cross to get to the beach, and it is a lovely place to relax.

Rather than a place for all night partying Mandrem is more of a place to relax and the more sedate pace of life reflects this. You will be able to practice Ayurveda, yoga, and meditation here; at the Oceanic Yoga and Meditation School, or as many people do, on the beach.

The sea here is clean and safe for swimming, and you will find lifeguards on the beach. There are a few cafes and bars on the beach and more restaurants in the village. Also you can walk to the markets or hire a scooter but make sure you stick around for the sunset at the end of the day.

There aren’t any luxury resorts here, but you will find some nice places to stay and chill out at this low-key beach.
