This is the Best Place to Stay in Arambol if You Want to Have a Happening Time

Tripoto

Goa is pretty amazing, especially if you go during the right season and the right people. But honestly, in the recent years, Goa is not the same as it was before.

The popular beaches like Baga, Calangute, etc. have become extremely crowded and dirty. And most of the North Goa has turned into a party place with not a minute of peace.

However, this doesn't mean that you can't still go to Goa with your partner or alone to enjoy some peace and tranquility. You just need to choose your beach better. And well, luckily, Arambol beach still remains to be charming and quieter than the other beaches in Goa.

This could be because it lies to the north of the popular Goa beaches and is easily 1-2 hours ride away from Panjim. But whatever the reason be, Arambol is the best place for you to hang out for some awesome partying and quiet time.

And well, if you are looking to enjoy the Arambol beach then you have to stay here too. The Noname Guesthouse is perfect for this because it is right next to the beach and offers your European-styled luxury at extremely affordable rates.

Best Time to Visit

Although you can visit Arambol throughout the year, there are specific months for specific activities to do here.

If you are looking for some peace and quiet then plan a trip post monsoon, i.e., during the months of September and October. At this time, it is still off season so the beach stays empty for most part of the day.

For people who want to enjoy the nightlife and beach life of Arambol, winter time is the best time to visit. Come here anytime between November and February and you can enjoy the drum playing on the beach along with some happening beach parties here.

How to Get Here

As I mentioned before, Arambol lies in the extreme north of Goa so it is easily around 2 hours from Panjim. But there are a couple of ways to reach here:

Rail

The nearest railway station to Arambol is the Vasco Da Gama station which is connected to major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, etc. So, you can take a train till here and then get a cab or rent a scooty to reach Arambol.

Air

The nearest airport to Arambol is the Goa International Airport in Vasco Da Gama. From here, you can take cab/scooty to reach Arambol.

Road

There are also several public and private buses which will leave you at Panjim which is around 2 hours from Arambol. From Panjim, you can take a cab or rent a scooty and reach here.

Local Buses

Once you have reached Goa, you also have the option of taking state buses to reach Arambol from any place. But remember that there is no direct bus connecting Arambol to Panjim, Madgao, Baga, etc.

If you are coming from South Goa then you will need to reach Panjim first. From Panjim, you will need to take the bus to Mapusa and from there, you will need to take the bus to Arambol. It will easily take around 3-4 hours to reach Arambol this way.

Ideally, scooty is the most convenient and cheapest option to travel in Goa.

During the winters, the beach comes alive at night and there are a lot of performances to enjoy here daily.

Take a Walk to the Sweet Water Lake

Another thing that you should definitely not miss out on is the hike to the hidden Sweet Water Lake in Arambol. It is just 1 km from the beach and involves walking through the rocks but trust me, it is pretty exciting.

And that feeling of watching the ocean waves while dipping your water in the lake is completely indescribable.
