About Palolem and the area
Palolem is one of the last beaches in the South of Goa, located near the town of Canacona. This is how the Lonely Planet describes the place:
"Palolem is undoubtedly one of Goa’s most postcard-perfect beaches: a gentle curve of palm-fringed sand facing a calm bay. (...) It is popular with backpackers, long-stayers and families. The atmosphere is vibrant and there’s plenty to do. As a protected bay Palolem is one of the safest swimming spots in Goa and you can comfortably kayak and paddleboard for hours here.
Away from the beach you can learn to cook, drop in to yoga classes or hire a motorbike and cruise to surrounding beaches, waterfalls and wildlife parks. At night you can listen to live reggae as the sun sets or dance in silence at a headphone party.
Palolem lulls you into a sense of peace but keeps you active and excited. This is Goa’s best beach, so find your hut, order a Kingfisher or cocktail, and enjoy."
