Chill-out and Explore
So whatever do you do in South Goa when it's always raining and there's very little open I hear you ask? The answer is to kick back and chill-out with a book and a beer or soft drink, and when you get bored of that embrace the rain and explore. Getting caught out in a torrential downpour of lukewarm rain is great fun and because of thehigh temperature you soon dry out...until the next deluge that is!
We spent our days wandering up and down Palolem beach, pottering around the couple of streets behind it, eating delicious curries, and drinking the odd kingfisher beer or three.
Palolem beach itself is a beautiful, gently curving, palm fringed stretch of sand, set facing a calm bay. It's set between two headlands, the one to the right is called Monkey Island and can be reached by foot at low tide. Pulled high up on the beach are numerous coloured fishing boats and lots of beach wildlife to keep you entertained. Volleyball playing cows, soaring sea eagles, lots of lazy dogs, and cawing crows. You can see a video clip of Andy's take on this here.
