Cola is a stunningly beautiful hidden beach in South Goa that very few tourists know of. This is so remote that it feels like a private beach. It remains hidden by thick vegetation, palm trees, and hilly terrain.
On my recent trip to Goa in Jan 2020, I chose to explore South Goa. Cola is a perfect choice to escape from the crowded beaches and the hustle and bustle of city life.
Our journey to Cola Beach began with a one-hour drive from Varca Beach (South Goa) which is 28 km from Cola Beach. This beach is 16 km from Palolem, which is further south. Getting to Cola isn't very easy, to put it simply. The sign boards are non-existent. Just to make you aware, there is an unpaved off-road with bumpy rock formations, with red mud all over, that stick out along the path. Hence, coming here only in the day is advised.
