Colva beach of Goa is very famous for its tranquillity. Its not very crowded unlike other famous beaches of Goa.If you are a nature lover and like to spend time peacefully walking along the sea shore then covla beach is the perfect place.Also the sand in Goa is very fine and smooth that forces you to walk on bear foot. It is also one of the longest beaches in the world(24km apprx).

Attractions: First is the nature by which you ll be mesmerised in the evening time and in the early mornings.There are many beach sports you can participate and all of them are really adventures and fun guaranteed.
A few of the water games that can be mentioned are
1) Bike ride 2) banana ride 3) paragliding ( all games i mentioned here are in sea water only ).
Apart from these, you also can plan many events if you are going in a big group.
Accommodation: You can find many resorts or lodges depending on your budget.
Time to visit: Best time to visit is from October to June.
Hotels: There are number of hotels just near the beach only.
Personal Experience :
We have planned to Goa as a Bachelor's party of our MCA classmates. And i only have planned to stay in the colva beach for our two day trip. So we have booked GTDC owned colva Residency which is very affordable considering the area and amenities. Its rent is Rs1375 per two adults and 20% extra for every extra person.
The Colva resort is just beside the beach and is walkable. We have spent one evening completely in the beach and tried all the games i mentioned above. Each one is a different experience but only thing common is, everytime i was afraid of water before going inside sea, but after coming out, that feeling is really awesome and fun.
We had a good food there, having all the varieties and i like biriyanis specially.The drink lovers can sit and drink anywhere and anytime.There is no one to question you, thats the advantage of GOA.
There are number of shops to do shopping also, mostly for ladies and I did a lot of shopping.
So happy visiting....!
