Beaches in India not only carry with them a feeling of isolation, remoteness, but also a feeling of belonging and sharing. These are the ideal destinations for all age groups...Can we discuss some of the most loved and also least explored Indian beaches.....
Hi Priyadarshini....your post comes with a cool breeze in this scorching summers. Some of the famous beaches of Goa are - the Anjuna Beach, which is popularly known as the freak capital of the world, and is the perfect place for enjoying the azure delight. Calangute and Baga lie in north Goa, and Calangute is also known as the Queen of Beaches. The Palolem Beach in Kerala is one of the most beautiful and untouched beaches with white sands, coconut palms and a gentle ocean breeze.
Hi friends....this is indeed a cool post, the very thought of beaches bring a relaxing feeling. The longest beach of India, Marina Beach in Goa, comprising of golden sand, good surf and a shimmering clean blue sea.I have been to this beach and trust me watching the sun set and rise from the beach is a fascinating experience. In the evenings, the beach turns into a fair ground with various kinds of entertainment and food stalls lining the beach. Another interesting fact i would like to share here is the availability of pony riding at the beach. At the other end of the beach is the new lighthouse. Close to the Marina beach is the aquarium, which has some of the most exotic collection of tropical sea fishes and fresh water fishes.

In this hot summer, the cool breeze at beaches comes as a great relief. The Gokarna beach in northern Karnataka is one of the four of India s most secluded beaches. Gokarna is a small and remote holy town, with untouched beaches. If a visitor wants to get a feel for what Goa was like in its heyday, it is the best place. Om beach is the only one of the four beaches that can be reached by car or rickshaw. Here, accommodation is basic but preferable to the often dirty places town. From here, one can look through the hills to the other beaches Kudle, Half Moon, and Paradise while enjoying the panoramic views. Kudle is the closest beach to town and is popular with day trippers, whereas the other beaches are much more isolated. Paradise beach is possibly the least like paradise as it s small and the water isn t the clearest. However, some travelers prefer it as it s the most inaccessible. Another lesser known beach is Varkala Beach of Kerala. It is situated about 50km north of Trivandrum. It is strikingly scenic beach, which is situated a small rickshaw ride away from the non-descript main town. It offers a peaceful alternative to the commercialised Kovalam. The setting of this beach is outstanding with a kilometer long stretch of cliff and views extending over the Arabian Sea. A paved footpath runs along the length of the cliff, bordered by coconut palms, quaint shops, beach shacks and bungalows. To have a sunset glance at one of the beach huts is one of the beautiful moments here. The Varkala village also offers very Yogic treatment here.
Thanks for this post...Iam an ardent admirer of Indian beaches. I have visited several beaches of this country, but Dona Paula has remained my favorite. At the place where two of Goa s famous rivers meet the Arabian Sea, is the secluded bay of Dona Paula. This beach of Goa carries with it an aura of both romance and myth. The Dona Paula beach is popularly known as the Lovers Paradise due to a myth that has been attached to this place. Among the places of interest at the Dona Paula beachside, there is the Reis Magos Church. This is considered to be one of the oldest churches built in Goa. It is dedicated to the three Magi the wise men of the East -Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar who, according to a legend, were guided by a star to Bethlehem to greet the newborn Jesus.
Please do include the RadhaNagar beach in Havelock Island, Andamans. Rated as world s 7th beach because of its vastness and the fact that there are literally a few people around makes this place worth a visit. The water of course is blue green as seen in the movies :
