Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Enjoy the serenity and soothing atmosphere of the picturesque Samudra Beach. Lush hills skirt the beach, which dazzles with its fine, dark sand and sweeping views over the water. Enjoy the feeling of the large waves crashing against your body, although bear in mind that they can be a bit too strong for a pleasant swim. Find shade under the tall palm trees as you appreciate the beach, which serves primarily as a spot for local fishermen. Refresh with a drink and dinner at one of the restaurants lining the beach, while gazing at a spectacular sunset.

  • Clean and amazing location..not crowded like Lighthouse Beach ..water is very clear and very bluish green like in Maldives..not suitable for swimming..very rough and seasonal..  more »
  • Beautiful beach, we simply loved it. We can't wait to go back. The best part is that the beach is not very crowded and the colour of the water is greenish.Simply irresistible.  more »

  • It was an impromptu trip to Kovalam. It was always on our to do list but whenever we planned we landed up in Goa I guess a known destination to an unknown. From the day we landed we fell in love with this city, it was magic it was as if we had been there before. People were friendly from an auto driver to a bystander always ready to help. We were staying at the Taj property which is another story to write about simply incredible. So we met this auto driver who said let me take you to the Kovalam beach and light house after dropping us he said when you want to go back call me and I will come.We offered to pay the auto driver he said i will take it on my return it was a simple act of trust that got us hooked to him for the next 3 days we were there. Once on the beach my daughter being a bold girl walked ahead exploring what we could do before nightfall. Next before we knew she had talked to a boat guy and we were on it and off for a boat ride along the coast. With the setting sun on one side and the beach on the other it was worth every rupee we spent the glittering sands and the waves made this ride along the quaint coast so magical. Once we were off we sat on the beach for some time watching the sun going down. After a while we got up and started walking along the beach where in the night all the tiny shops some selling jewelry some tours and the majority restaurants came to life, as we walked along each restaurant there were people outside the shop trying to tempt us to their restaurants with exotic catches of the day, you name it from crabs to lobsters of various sizes. Fish from pomfret to sear fish they all on display. After a short walk we settlef into a restaurant for a cold bee0r and some lovely food. We walked back to our point called the auto guy who was there in a jiffy and left with some memories that we would remember for a long long time. Must add the auto driver in his broken English asked us about our experience and said he would be waiting for us the next day and that is another story...........
