  Goa, India

Palolem Beach is situated in Canacona in southern Goa, India. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Goa. Palolem is a natural bay surrounded by lofty headlands on either side. This makes it a calm, idyllic sea with a gently sloping bed that allows you to walk up to 100 meters out from the beach. Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself.

It is about one mile long and is crescent-shaped; one can view the entire beach from either end. Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea. The depth of the sea increases gradually, being shallowest at the northern end of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast.

Palolem Beach is located within 2.5 kilometres of the market town of Chaudi in South Goa, and about 35 km from Margao, the district headquarters of South Goa. Other neighbouring beaches in South Goa include Agonda, Colva, Patnem and Galjibaga Beach.

The easiest way to get to Palolem is to take the train or fly to Margao, called Madgaon in the rest of India, and pay for a government approved fixed-price taxi to Palolem. Fixed-price taxis are available from the train station and from Goa Dabolim Airport at Vasco da Gama. Alternatively, Canacona is Palolem's nearest train station, approximately 5-minute drive away, but for shorter journeys from other parts of India it is almost always better to arrive by bus due to the remoteness of the train station from Palolem beach.
