OK beach, crowded on Sundays. lots of locals, better beaches are Agonda, Palolem, Utorda, Kentucky restaurant near the beach entrance offers mouth watering food, especially Goan fish curry and rice, a bit pricey...locals go to cheaper option Manisha restaurant which is very nearby

As wide and lovely as Benaulim beach next along. Lots of beach activity if you want noisy rides. Though restaurant prices are much more expensive than Benaulim. Take the further walk if you want to eat/drink.
