Agonda Beach

Location

This beach is located at 15° 2' 41" N x 73° 59' 8" E (Latitude: 15.04490, Longitude: 73.98580). It is 43 kilometers (26 miles) from Margao and 76 kilometers (47 miles) from Panaji. Its 10 minutes north of the much busier Palolem beach, south Goa's most popular beach. So, if the solitude at Agonda gets too much, you won't have far to go for entertainment.

How to Reach

The closest railway stations to Agonda are Margao on the Konkan Railway, and Canacona (also known as Chaudi). Canacona is a 20 minute drive away from Agonda and the journey costs around 200 rupees in an auto rickshaw. Margao is 30 minutes away and costs 600-700 rupees in a taxi. Alternatively, Goa's Dabolim airport is around one hour away. A taxi from the airport will cost 1,000-1,500 rupees.

Highlights

Agonda beach is the perfect beach for anyone who simply wants to relax away from it all. This seemingly endless pristine beach stretches for around 3 kilometers and it's lined with simple beach shacks. Hawkers aren't allowed on the beach, so you'll be able to remain refreshingly undisturbed. Chilling, swimming, walking, eating and just generally doing nothing are the main attractions at Agonda. Boat trips are possible for those who are up for some activity.

Other Details

Most people choose to stay in a coco hut on Agonda beach. Romance Beach Huts are recommended as  best Goa beach huts. Alternatively, Cupid's Heaven has clean and cheap rooms by the beach. Monsoon is a lovely little family run guest house at the northern end of Agonda beach, with very reasonably priced huts and room. Hangout, new and also at the northern end, has impressed its guests. Shanti Agonda huts are recommended as well. If you're looking for something a bit more upmarket, H2O has sea view and garden view cottages on the beach. Also check out Agonda White Sands huts and villas.
