GOA –AGONDA BEACH


Agonda is a large village located in Canacona in South Goa, India. Agonda is famous for its beach and It is one of the only four beaches designated as turtle nesting sites under the Coastal Regulation Zone 2011 notification. There is one more beach on other side of Agonda cliff called Cola beach which has an adjoining lagoon. Agonda Beach is a public beach located in Agonda village in Goa, India, about 9.2 kilometres (5.7 mi) north of Palolem Beach in South Goa, and about an hour from Margao. During the month of September, the beach serves as a nesting ground for olive ridley sea turtles. In 2016 it was ranked on TripAdvisor's "Travelers Choice" as fourth in Asia by Tripadvisor 2016 and first in India. If you continue driving towards Panaji from Palolem, the next beach is Agonda. It’s long and lonely, fringed with palms and casuarinas and dominated by a large hill to the south. It’s not safe to swim out too far on this beach. There are very few facilities available here and you are needed to carry all the essentials. Agonda is a 3 km long beautiful cove of white sand, safely secluded in the palms. There are no tourists, no souvenir stalls, no restaurants—just peace and tranquility. Just the trees, the beach, the big beautiful ocean and you.

Swimming

The most common water sport is swimming, although it is least mentioned in the media. The waters around the Goan beaches are warm and almost always safe. Swimming can be enjoyed by the young, the old, the infirm, the affluent and the budget traveller alike. There are life guards at all Goan beaches, so check with them about the status of the sea, before you jump in.

Water Scooter

Water scooters accommodate two people on a ride. This action sport provides all the thrills of a motorbike with the softness of an ocean instead of hard tar road beneath the feet. They are readily available at Dona Paula jetty, Cidade de Goa, Majorda, and Candolim beach.

Parasailing

High fliers amongst the speed lovers can opt for parasailing. There’s a rope about 300 feet long attached to the parasail harness at one end and to the speedboat at the other. When the boat speeds off on the water, the parasailor just takes one or two steps and he is lifted into the air, the parasail lifting behind him.
