Mandrem BeachThis is undoubtedly the most surreal and aesthetically pleasing beach of North Goa! Super large, clean with very few shacks and other eateries/vendors of any sort are present here. This is one of those beaches, where you can just enter and let go of your inhibitions, as there aren't any opportunists waiting to bother your peace (very common NOW in Goa, specially the crowded beaches). Being a girl traveller, these might be one of your important concerns, but this is the beach you should definitely go to if you're just looking to have time by yourself!
Last day in Goa so we decided to just chill at Mandrem all day. The day alternated between dips in the sea, beers in the restaurant and just lazing around on the sunbeds. In the evening we walked along the beach street picking up trinkets and snacking on shawarma rolls. We left for the airport the next morning and headed back.
After lunch at Palolem we headed started the long cab drive to Mandrem. Reaching there in the evening, we had a late lunch at the sea facing huts where we were staying, had a nice dip and chilled by the beach for the rest of the evening.
g) Drove to Mandrem to explore the beach. Also checked "Elsewhere" cottages to check their stay. Pretty decent place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle and want far less crowded beach for yourself.
Had enough, well then get moving on to Mandrem Beach. This is the relaxed part. You will see foreigners but they are more the family sort. The interesting topography makes a small inlet of water where you are sandwiched between water sand and ocean.
