Polem beach lies in the south of Goa, and is the last beach in the state before the border with Karnataka. At 700 metres in length, it is considered small by Goa’s standards.
Its clean yellow sands are set slightly back from the surrounding coastline, in a small bay. Providing some shelter from the full strength of the Arabian Sea, it is generally regarded as safe for swimming. However, Polem Beach does not have any lifeguards on duty.
Lined with coconut palms and native casuarina trees, Polem Beach is one of Goa’s quietest beaches. On weekdays, it’s entirely possible to have the entire beach to yourself. Needless to say then, food and drink options are limited, with just one family-owned bar-restaurant providing sustenance for beachgoers.
