Perfect for couples, friends and even solo travellers.Shiva valley, famously called as the psychedelic temple, is located next to Curlies and is renowned for its Tuesday trance parties starting from 5pm. Neon lights and bass-thumping music will make you dance to the tune again and again.

Personally, I felt the place was too crowded which is usually not my cup of tea. We could hardly find a vacant table. The night club was on the first floor with an entry charge of Rs. 750/-. As decided we were just here for dinner, and ordered Chicken and prawn fried rice and Chilly chicken. It was an absolute delight. The place did not serve pancakes and soups at night because it was too crowded. Too strong a logic I believe. Plus, we were interrupted quite a few times by peddlers who were selling neon bands and headbands. It was quite annoying. The tables were laid out on the sand just few steps away from the sea. The place had a live barbeque counter where they were serving fish and meat. If you follow the Google GPS from Siolim, it will directly take you to Curlies parking. Car parking charges – Rs. 40/- per car. From here, you will have to walk 5-7 minutes to reach the shack. The street shops will guide you. Cigarettes are readily available. This is the first time I saw so many brands at one place. And, for some strange reasons they were selling chocolates along and not mint. Share with me if you know why they do so in the comment section below.
One of the treasures found off the shore of the Anjuna beach, the Curlies is probably the most popular beach-side bar in the country. Unarguably, there is a certain quaint-ness and a beauty to experience in this place. Without the usual over-crowdedness, the beach and the shack too are great for one of the most beautiful beach bar experiences.
