Default Bogmalo Beach

Hi Aditya,

One of the best clean and isolated beaches in Goa would be the Bogmalo Beach. It is very near to the Goa Airport and would be the ideal place to stay if you want privacy and if you want to escape the buzz of Goa.

You could stay in Ruby's Guest house in Bogmalo which starts at Rs. 500/- a day and then you also have Lalita's Guest House on the beach starting from Rs. 700/- a day and if you have the moolah and would need a luxury getaway..you could stay in the Bogmalo Resort which starts at about Rs. 3000/- a day w/o taxes..
I have stayed at all these three places at times and really like the place and the food in Lalita's is amazing..
you could also hire an active from the nearby shops for about Rs.150 a day..
let me know if you want more info on the same..

One of the best fish curries that I have had in Goa is at O'Coqueiro
Not exactly cheap, but true goan and portuguese food.

Can someone suggest a decent place to stay for a family of 4 ?
Like a villa or something? I am thinking of going in feb first week or so.

Also a visit to Mandrem beach is a must. It's before Arambol, and the drive to these 2 is amazing. Takes you through the hills with winding curves. And the walk to Mandrem is quite exciting too. You have to cross a long rickety wooden bridge to get to the beach, which IMHO is quite thrilling. One thing to note is that there's hardly any parking space to park vehicles, and one has to park on the road. But once you get there, its amazing. There's a shack in there named "End of the world" and you really feel that ways!

My fav place for a lazy breakfast, Lila Cafe Goa - The Best Restaurant & Cafe in Goa : About Us
I will need to constantly update with my inputs as and when I remember . - also vist Feista, next to Tito's on Baga. Very elegent and somewhat formal compared to the rest of the joints. How could I forget - Britto's for breakfast.

gotta go, enjoy

Interesting to note that there's not one non-quasi-touristy place named. Everything is on the coast. No complaint's but just wondering. Has anyone really, "really", explored GOA? It's like going to Mumbai and eating/Drinnking at Cafe Mondegar's or something

I'm right now in Goa - My vote goes to Morjim beach. I just drove my civic through the sands here near to the water. I could see lots of white migratory birds here. From here you could also see the chapora fort (DCH).

Ditto.
Most people get fooled at the main Arambol beach & spend some time there & move on. Most people do not realise that the real fun is when you go beyond the cliffs on the RHS of the main beach that you get to this secluded beach. Have some great memories from this place.

Two thumbs up

Most of Candolim has good water sports activities, cant get the name of the place but you cross the dominos outlet and head to the sea.
