I wouldn't choose to visit this particular beach in Goa, but it's worth noting that it does have lovely golden sand.

This beach serves as a hub for aquatic activities such as jet skiing, bumpy boat rides, leisurely boat rides, and thrilling parasailing adventures over the sea. It's a perfect stopover for those seeking an adrenaline rush amidst the crystal-clear waters.

The beach is quite tiny, and the prices of the snacks sold here are significantly higher than their MRP. Additionally, they charge 100 rupees for a plastic floor mat. However, the beach boasts beautiful golden sand, making it a worthwhile visit. It may be more convenient to bring your own snacks and floor mat.
