Although the waters are clear and alluring, we advise getting the opinion of the local folks as well as the lifeguards before jumping in for a swim. Our next stop will be Ashwem Beach, situated south to the Arambol beach. This is another isolated beach in Goa with vast stretches of sand on the horizon as you make your way to beach shacks and huts midway along the beach.

These days, there are not many foreign sellers, and even fewer hippie ones. Nowdays most sellers are professional market vendors from Rajasthan and other places in north India, Tibet, Nepal and other places, offering everything you would normally find at the local beach markets, and much, much more. Get a taste of Goa's relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking scenery on the full-day beach tour.

What people are saying about Karnataka

Joe was very knowledgeable about Goan history and introduced us to some local Goan specialities. They were generally rather heavy with pastry and some very spicy! But great to try. It helped us find our way around the area of of Panaji where we were staying. He recommended 2 local restaurants, one we dined in tonight and it was excellent. Great value for money
