Palolem Beach - Goa - Reviews of Palolem Beach - TripAdvisor
WOW!!!!! What a fantastic place. As I think happens with a lot of people, we had only anticipated staying here for 3 nights, when in fact, we spent 10 nights here. It is totally relaxing, the beach is fantastic. There’s a great little backwater trip you can do when it’s high tide. (100 rupees per person!) You can walk out…
Palolem Beach - Goa - Reviews of Palolem Beach - TripAdvisor
A 3km palm fringed sandy beach that’s a bit of Paradise on earth. India wasn’t the first place I thought of looking for the “perfect beach” but that’s almost what we found in Palolem. A local planning restriction means that there are no permanent brick buildings with eyeshot of the beach, so what has developed is a string of restaurants…

bars all along the beach and food is lovely and cheap! Beer is 80p a
bottle and its buy one get one free before midnight! :)
accommodation as soon as we got off the bus. R300 between us per night
which is 4 pound 30 (no pound sign here on keyboard). lovely room.. even
had a TV!!
So we stayed there 6 nights... had intended on 4 but we
met lots of cool people n got to know the place that we found it hard to
leave. We visited the beach next to it called Patnem which was more
secluded. We saw dolphins one early evening which was cool... especially
as Stine and I had stayed up till 7 next morning to see them as they
apparently come onto the shore.. but not that morning,
animals everywhere!! especialy dogs. There are cows just walking down
the street, even queuing up to get into the resturants. I was walking
back to the appartment one afternoon on my own when a HUUUUGGEE Camel
walked around the corner on its own. Very bazaar!! But thats Goa!!
We got the bus up to North Goa today, Baga. Were not too impressed so were
gonna move further north tomorrow to Anjuna , stay there a few nights
and then the relaxing ends and we head up to Rajasthan. thats is for now

We are always looking for great activities going in Palolem and indeed the whole of Goa, so we can let you all know about them.
One such activity is 'Goa Jungle Adventure'.
French owner Emanuel runs day trip adventures around Goa which include water fall trekking, ridge trekking and canyoning. Just what you need if you feel lazing about on the beach has become too much for you! It is also great because it gets you out into the Goan jungle, and introduces you to the local wildlife and fauna. It really is an experience you shouldn't miss. For more information contact Emanuel through the Goa Jungle Adventure page on Palolem-Beach.com.

Fire Dancers, Visuals, Performers!
The Final Wave Season Closing Party in May 2009 in Goa was a BLAST. Now we're back to OPEN the season with a massive beach party in Palolem.
Silent Noise is launching its 3rd Season on the 7th of November at a totally revamped Neptune Point (Outdoor Ocean Front Venue).
Silent Noise has been tipped by the Guardian (UK) as one of the best Beach Parties in the world (http://bit.ly/2hs2Ju).
SILENT NOISE (http://www.silentnoise.in)
Question: How do you keep the party going and the people dancing all night long when there’s a sound ban after 10pm? Answer: headphones.
Welcome to Silent Noise, where wireless headsets allow those people that want to party to do so, while nobody else is disturbed. Here there are several hundred party goers rocking the night away, while around the corner folks aren’t even aware anything is going on. With 3 DJs playing on 3 channels - there's always something you will like!

I thought you would enjoy reading some more of our articles about travelling in India. Palolem, is my all time favourite place in India, but I love travelling in India as a whole and have done a whole lot of it! Another one of my favourite places is Kerala. Often dubbed 'God´s own country' it has so much to offer and is a beautifully moving place to visit.
A MUST DO in Kerala is a cruise on a houseboat through the magical backwaters. I have written a personal account of my first such houseboat cruise and am happy to share it with you here. Enjoy and do send me any feedback if you spend some time in Kerala!

We are a Danish couple + 6o who stayed 5 days in Om Sai Agonda Beach Hut. It is extremely quiet and is a wonderful change from everything else if you want to rest in silence and go for long walks along a beautiful stretch of fantastic beach. Not so many dogs and not so many selling people. very, very beautiful place. For old as well as young, singles or couples. Go for it. Thank you, everybody in Om Sai Agonda Beach Huts.
Kirsten and Eric.
How do I get from Goa International Airport to Palolem?
Goa International Airport is a one and a half hours drive away from Palolem by taxi.
Expect to pay 1200 Rupees for a taxi from Goa airport to Palolem. The easiest thing to do is order one at the ‘Prepaid Taxi’ rank as soon as you arrive at the airport. That way you pay beforehand and will not have to deal with any bartering. If you want to bargain you go outside of the airport and find a taxi there.

The new season is starting in Palolem, Goa, India.
The season in Palolem starts in October, although most places do not really open until November.
We recently got an email from someone who wanted to know whether there would be anything open in October as that was when he was planning to arrive. Here is our reply;
''Since the new law which obliges all huts to be dismantled at the end of each season, resorts do tend to open later, because of the time it takes to put them all up again and get all relevant licenses.
However, in our experience there are places that have the right connections and manage to get up and open by October. So a lot of the places especially restaurants and bars, will already be open.
We cannot tell you which resorts specifically will be open, as we do not know, please try contacting them specifically. For their contact details see our Accommodation page.
The main road and all the businesses along there will already be open.''
When are good times to come to Palolem beach, Goa?

Meanwhile we are working on our website so that it is full of information for you all to use and enjoy, making your trip to Palolem and Goa even easier.

Michelle, who also teaches yoga and massage techniques in Patnem, runs weekly Reiki courses during the season.
Reiki was originally 'discovered' in Japan and means 'Universal Life Force Energy'. It is a way of awakening your energy and chanelling it in a healing way to yourself and others. Reiki can completely balance the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your personality.
My experience of reiki was a very powerful one and I would recommend it to anyone interested in awakening to their spirituality and inner power.
The course I took was a three day intensive course -you can read more about Reiki on our website.
