Welcome to Arambol, the pearl of Goa
Arambol, in the far north of Goa, close to the Maharashtra border, with its seemingly endless stretch of sand and rocky headland, is one of India’s most charismatic beach towns. Discovered in the 1960’s by the hippies looking to escape the fading flower power era of the west, the town has since become a welcoming community of locals, tourists and long-term visitors, where peace and love prevail amongst a still largely unspoiled paradise!
The beach is the focal point of the town, with a vast array of accommodation, restaurants and market stalls scattered from one end to the other. To the north, situated on the cliffside, is a collection of beach shacks of varying description. The main road, running from the beach and through the main part of town, houses a further assortment of guesthouses, bars/restaurants and stores. As there is not too far to go, everything is within reach on foot.
In the company of its constant laid back atmosphere it is difficult to do anything but relax, however the town is developing a reputation for extreme water sports, such as paragliding and kite surfing. Nevertheless, for visitors in search of peace, the beach is vast enough to find a quiet spot even if it means sharing with the cows. At sunset and as night falls, the beachfront transforms into one of Goa’s most romantic dinner settings, with candlelit restaurant tables serving up a feast of fish dishes and beer. The fascinating blend of traditional Goan village life and western hippy culture never fail to leave a lasting impression. Coupled with its location on the shores of the Arabian Sea, Arambol is the perfect place in which to lose all thoughts and dream the day away!
