Beach is 50 kms from Panaji. A unique beach in the North Goa, is both rocky
and sandy beach and much sought after. It has a sweet water pond right on the
Arambol is along the Goa border with its fresh water lagoon. Due to its isolation,
some tourists has been unable to reach this beach.It is the 16-km-long sea beach.
The main beach has adequate body surfing and there are several attractive bays
a short walk to the north.
Beyond an idyllic, rocky-bottomed cove, the trail emerges to a board strip of
soft white sand hemmed in on both sides by steep cliffs. A small fresh-water
lake extends along the bottom of the valley into a thick jungle,just behind
it. Fed by boiling hot springs, the lake is lined with sulphurous mud, which,
smeared over the body, dries to form a surreal, butter-coloured shell.
The resident hippies swear it's good for you and spend much of the day tiptoeing
naked around the shallow like refugees from some obscure tribal initiation ceremony
- much to the amusement of Arambol's Indian visitors.
