Palolem in detail


Most of Palolem’s accommodation is of the seasonal beach-hut variety, though there are plenty of old-fashioned guesthouses or family homes with rooms to rent back from the beach. It’s still possible to find a basic palm-thatch hut near the beach for as little as ₹800 outside of high season, but many of the huts these days are more thoughtfully designed – the very best have air-con, flat-screen TV and sea-facing balcony.
