Palolem Beach information
Palolem – despite the development that has seen an unbroken string of beach shacks and huts spring forth from one end to the other – remains a beautiful beach. Its southern end tends to be busier, whilst its northern stretch, bounded at high tide by the mouth of a shallow river, is quiet and calm, with a pretty island that you can walk out to at low tide. The sea here is usually shallow and swimmable, and you’ll sometimes spot dolphins cavorting in the bay. Beware, however, the weekends, which see scores of local daytrippers descend with their cameras a-clickin’.
