Located about 50 km from Panaji, the long and lonely ambience of the Arambol beach provides a soothing contrast to the hustle and bustle of other Northern Goa beaches. If you are yearning for some solitude and tranquility, the Arambol beach with its serene surroundings fits the bill perfectly. Arambol comprises two beaches and the bigger one is known as the Harmal beach.
The Arambol beach is a vast stretch of golden sand interspersed with
rocky headlands. A hot spring near the main beach, which feeds into a
freshwater lake, produces silt on the lakeshore regarded as having skin
curative elements. The rocky headland or the cliffs near the beaches
lend themselves ideally for paragliding. Apart from paragliding, one can
set out on Dolphin watching boat trips.
The nearby village of Arambol is a typical Goan fishing village. They
are friendly people and you chat up with one of them, chances are that
you get to listen to some interesting anecdotes. The otherwise quiet
Arambol beach throbs with activities on weekends when large crowds of
local picnickers gather here for holidaying.
