South Goa is home to one of SE Asia’s longest unbroken strands of good beaches. Reaching from Bogmalo in the North to Cavelosim in the South, Colva, Utorda and Majorda villages are our nearest access points to the golden sands with safe bathing and excellent shacks for dining, being only 20 minutes away. Many of the Casa’s guests rave about Zeebop at Utorda, famed for its fresh fish menu.
Further South, but easily manageable, are the delightful coves around Palolem and Patnem where the Western Ghats tumble into the sea. Life here is cosmopolitan and even a little alternative and Casa Susegad often swaps guests with some of the higher class eco-resorts down there. The huge crescent curve of Palolem with all its yoga/reiki/taro/silent-disco vibe contrasts with the slightly quieter Patnem and the almost deserted smaller coves like Colomb.
In the opposite direction, but still reachable, are the much more developed and commercialised beaches of North Goa – Candolim, Calangute, Vagator, Anjuna, Baga to name but five. It’s the Marmite of Goa – you either love it or hate it.
