Beaches In Goa

The Goan state has a long coastline, dotted with beautiful beaches of different length, shapes and uniqueness. More than 60km of Goa's coastline is sandy beaches. Some of Goa’s most famous and frequented beaches are in Anjuna, Vasco, Arambol, Chapora, Calangute and Vagator.

Beaches are what tourists come to Goa for. You can find lots of entertainment here: from beach tents and sun lounges to water sports and island resorts. Beach-related tourism is working big time in the state. Related services such as hotels, diving, boating and other flourish well here.

So does eco-tourism. Beaches of Goa are famous for nesting grounds for sea turtles. Olive Ridleys and Leatherbacks come to the beaches to lay eggs. The sandy, shaded beaches are favourable for them to hatch. The office of the Center for Environmental Education (CEE) in Goa is involved in programs creating awareness about sea turtles issues, their monitoring and protecting turtle nesting sites.

Morjim, Pernem Taluka, in North Goa, Galgibag in Canacona village and Agonda in South Goa are the three major nesting sites of the Olive Ridleys in Goa. Other sites are at Ashvem, Anjuna, Calangute-Candolim, Colva and Palolem. The local people are active in turtle protection and raising awareness to tourists. There are many community projects, too, initiated by the locals and environmentalists.
