Welcome to Polem
Kamaxi Beach Resort, the sole place to stay, has some pretty earthy rooms for this price but you’re paying for the seclusion and the friendly brothers work hard at keeping the place very low key. At the time of our visit there were two candle-powered dirt-floor huts at the southern end of the beach and simple rooms in a pair of buildings at the northern beach entrance. A restaurant serves fresh seafood and cold drinks.
To get to Polem, take a bus from Chaudi (₹20, 50 minutes) and get off at the bus stop, around 3km after the petrol station. The stop is directly opposite the turn-off to the beach, then it’s a 1km walk to the village and beach. There’s an ATM in nearby Majali.
