Five beach vacations in South Goa

Goa-beach-2Think Goa beaches and you have visuals of Arambol, Mandrem, Morjim Vagator, Anjuna Baga Calangute Candolim Miramar and Dona Paula come to mind. There is no denying the fact that the beaches, most of them located in North Goa, are ideal for beach holidays.

But there is more to Goa and beaches in South Goa can match those to the north in scenic splendour. This tourist season, visit South Goa beaches and trust us, you will not be disappointed.


A popular tourist attraction in South Goa, the crescent-shaped beach is surrounded by hillocks and palm trees. Palolem is a natural bay surrounded by lofty headlands on either side. Because of its crescent-shape, you can view the entire beach from either end. The beach, about one mile long, offers a lot in terms of water sports. The beach is featured as the Goan residence of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) in the film The Bourne Supremacy (2004).Goa-BEach-1 est at the northern end.


Goa’s southernmost beach rarely figures on the itineraries of tourists visiting the beach state. However, it has ensured Polem is bereft of the hordes that throng the beaches and made it an ideal for those wanting to enjoy a quiet holiday.

Polem lies 27 km from Palolem Beach and is the southernmost beach in Goa. About 700 m long, the Polem beach is sickle-shaped.

The beach is ideal for a picnic or a seaside stroll.

Patnem Beach

If you are looking to escape the crowds and laze on the beach, do some sunbathing and do nothing else, then Patnem fits your requirements.

The white sandy crescent shaped seashore is among the quietest beaches of South Goa.

Find a beach chair or a hammock and let the sea breeze lull you to sleep. When you wake up, gorge on some of the most sumptuous and exotic fresh seafood to try out the Goan cuisines. Once you are done with it, reclaim your position on the chair or the hammock.

Recomended Guide Books for Hawaii?

My family is just begining to plan for our first trip to Hawaii. We want couple of good guide books to help us plan everything. Where to stay, what to do, etc.

There are so many books out there, I was hoping someone would have a suggestion to help us.

Thanks in advance!

It depends on which island you're going to. This should help you get started:

when you get to the baggage claim area, or front airport lobbies, they have tons of Free brochures (some with discount coupons)! Taxi's are too expensive, look in one of the free brochure's for a round trip Shuttle service.

have fun and Aloooooooooooooooooooooha! :o)
p.s. our avatars look almost the same, lol

Best travel book for Hawaii?

Specifically one for Oahu since that's where we will be staying on our vacation. But anyways basically I'm looking for a really good, helpful travel book for Hawaii/Oahu (we are willing to look into visiting the other islands so not a big deal if it's not centered directly on Oahu). We want suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. So what is the best travel book to buy?

I have try on travelcyclopedia.org and find lots of travel guide and tip about Hawaii you can try all the best....
