Mandrem is one of the best-kept secrets of north Goa. This beach is as laid back and languid as one could possibly hope for. A balmy tropical breeze, sea waves running hastily to the shore and unexpected simplicity, makes this beach stand out from the others. Yoga and meditation are the most favoured activities on this beach. Meditating in the lap of nature with the distant whispering of the palm trees makes this place a haven for the exhausted mind and soul. Nestled among luxurious palms sits a cluster of shacks with a view of the serene Mandrem beach licked by the warm waters of Arabian sea. You should head here for the beach-bound bliss and be warned, you might find it hard to tear yourself away.
