You’ll be free to kick back and relax on holidays to Arossim Beach – this place comes with one of the quietest and prettiest beaches in South Goa.
Time for a time out
Long, sandy beaches – check. Wooden beach shacks – check. Picture-postcard sunsets – check. Arossim Beach ticks all the boxes for those who want a taste of classic South Goa. And it’s all tempered with an even more laidback attitude than usual.
Arossim Beach conjures up the backdrop to a classic beach holiday – but with a twist. There’s sun, there’s sea, there’s sand, but there’s also loads of breathing room. The beaches here run together seamlessly to make one wide, sandy mega-beach that stretches 25 kilometres down Goa’s west coast.
Eat like a local
If the boats beached on the shore haven’t given you a clue, the food here is swimming-around-that-morning fresh. Beach shacks are one of those true Goan staples – they dot the whole coast with fab eating spots. If seafood isn’t your cup of tea, the hotels just behind Arossim Beach lay on international buffets that offer a bit more choice.
A knotted history
Four hundred and fifty plus years of Portuguese influence have meant that Indian and European cultures have knitted together, creating something of a patchwork landscape. The countryside right behind Arossim Beach is home to some huge colonial mansions. They’re scattered between forests of palms, lush paddy fields, and traditional fishing villages.
