Once again thanks Dhanush for this tlog, which helps many of us to visit some nice places in Goa apart from well known beaches.
Happy to know that this report of mine was of good help to you.
It was only good that you did not get stuck up at Calangute, Baga or Candolim. During the just concluded long weekend, it was a crowded and spilling over.

Arambol, correctly chosen by you is one amongst the lesser crowded among the lot.

Thanks for clarifying no1lives4ever.
My bad, I stand corrected for calling it the 'Terakhol Beach'.

I am afraid that you might not be allowed entry into this place.

Thanks for such a wonderful narration yet again Dhanush

Arvalem also has a Shiva Temple and falls 500 mtrs ahead - after the caves. You can see the falls in its full glory during peak monsoon. The temple is small setup with not much of a crowd. During Ganesh Festival, the ganesh idols are immersed in the foothill of the waterfalls. The stream flows full and the earthen red water color is one amusing thing to enjoy!

I have few images taken few years ago at that spot. Here are they -

The entrance to the Temple - on left hand side after 100 mtrs, the waterfall can be seen.

When the rains were long gone, the waterfall was so small and tiny -

There is a well maintained steps to enter in the water stream too - right in front of the temple, but entrance from the right side of the temple.

And in early summer when the water is still running, kids have blast in the water -

Rainy season is when you see this place in the most amusing colors!

Fabulous travelogue Dhanush! Really loved the photos and your journey. I only wish I had searched properly on T-Bhp and found this article when I visited Goa during the last week of July. But ended up visiting Chapora fort and Japanese Garden among the places that you have mentioned. Although we didn't go down to the beach from the Japanese Garden since it got cloudy really fast when we were there due to the ongoing monsoon. It was a good decision too, since the moment we got into the car, it started raining.

Chapora fort is anyway a famous tourist spot.
Though the travelogue was supposed to be covering the "lesser known sojourns", I included Chapors because it is my favourite destination for a sunset in Goa
