While North Goa remains to be the preferred tourist attraction, Colva beach is one of the best not only in south Goa, but goa itself. Really clean and well maintained white sand beach. You can surely go for the water sports here due to less rush. Really nice beach for some solo candid pictures. Not really familiar with the shack... More

It is near Madgaon and you can get down at Madgaon if you are coming by train and take a govt. pre-paid taxi to any hotel near the beach. From Madgaon to Colva you will... More

This beach is the south Goa version of Calangute beach. Highly commercial and crowded. But the large amount of coconut palms provide very good shade for tourists. The stagnate backwater in the beach provided great view. Good parking facilities and restaurants around.

I like this beach as it is not overcrowded. It is Very peaceful beach with all beach facilities like shack, water sports. Good for those who do not want to be part of overcrowded beach. Crowd is also seems decent.
