Agonda Beach Goa
Location : 37 kilometers from Margao, South Goa
Best Time to Visit : October to February
Attractions : Secluded beach, Cabo da Rama fort
The Agonda beach is situated towards the north of Goa. It lies a bit secluded from the mainland and thus is a bit difficult to reach. There are no local buses that ply here.
So one can always take a cab or hire a bike and reach here. The Agonda beach is a 3-kilometer long beach, which is no less than paradise. It is not much frequented by tourists, which gives it a touch of solitude. If you are looking for uninterrupted peace and tranquility amongst the calm waves and swaying coconut trees, the Agonda beach is the place for you. A little away from the beach is the fort of Cabo de Rama.

Though in ruins, it creates an element of mysticism and drama around the beach. This fort is also not much frequented but people make it a point to visit this fort to appreciate its beauty and architecture. It is said that Lord Rama (of the Hindu epic Ramayana), stayed here with his wife Sita, during his 14 year old exile.

The Agonda beach is a beautiful stretch of land, which is flanked by the ocean on one side and the small hills on the other side. If you are looking forward to some adventure, hire a tent and spend the night camping on the beach, under the starry skies, listening to the crashing of the waves against the shore.
