check out palolem beach for cute beach huts.
That depends on your defnition of basic. Beach huts can range from little shacks made of straw on stilts with nothing but a bed and a lamp. Or you could stay in something made of brick, with an attached bath, which is also good. The availability depends on the beach you are planning to stay at and the season you are going in. By and large, I would reccommend something close to the beach.
check out www.chalston.com affordable place will cost u around 20$s amazing place loads of party places around there
yes Palolem it is for amazing beach huts. i have some pics here:
These may seem too basic for u, but I’d recommend “Bhakti Kutir” or “Ciaran’s Camp” here which provide great (and affordable) living. You could do a search for both these n u’ll find tons of info and contacts.
We stayed in the basic ones tho – I even had an American friend along n he loved the experience!
BTW, Bourne Supremacy’s first scene was shot on this beach :)
Quick word of advice – do carry toilet paper and other toileteries if ur going to the simple ones :) but dont worry the loos and bathrooms are clean!
Ah yes.. the eternal quest for a beach hut. you could try Palolem (South Goa) a la Matt Damon in Bourne Supremacy. These are basically huts on the shore.
Basically South Goa is less crowded and cheaper. But cud lack action. If that’s what ur looking for head to North Goa (overcrowded yes, but action packed).
Try beaches like Candolim (i live there, yay), Anjuna, Vagator.
Avoid at all costs Calangute unless you want to feel like Mumbai in Goa.
i found your response the most honest here!
i am visitng Goa from 23 to 27 feb…and dont know where to stay!!
cud you help me with this please???? i am hoping to stay in panjim, but dont know if i am right…we are a family of 6, hence the choice of capital.
if you could advice me some apartment kinda place [low budget] in panjim [or anywhere you recommend] i am sure you will have a frien for life! and ready help whenever you try to be in delhi.
glad i cud be of help and even happier to know ur visiting goa! in order to help u a bit more a couple of questions.
- 1. whats the budget – medium?
- 2. what kind of holiday? beachy or typical goa touristy (churches, etc)
and just one request as a native goan..
thanx clyde for your response.
1. yeah, medium budget…i was about to reserve a room at the Panjim Residency, about Rs. 870 for a day, double room. someone told me we can get an apartment there for sometging about 1500-2000, dont know how true this is!!
2. typical goan holiday with a tour of north goa, a day to south goa, a day in panjim nd back to square one!! we are a typlical punjabi family so this is all i can think about!!!!
also, pls give me your email ID too…
You convinced me ;-) I’m going to Goa during the next Christmas holidays. One week in the South (Benaulim) but first one week in Candolim. As you live in Candolim, perhaps you can recommend me some (basic) accommodation there, close to the beach. I’ll be on my own.
Thanks in advance!
Regards from Belgium
Thanks… the answer seems to be to turn up there and find somewhere, hopefully that wont be too tricky!
We are veering towards Palolem baech, but when you say not action packed what do you mean? Is it easy to get around the various goan beaches? What else is a short journey away should we fancy a day trip?
Palolem (and much of South Goa) is not yet “commercialized” and doesn’t have hoardes of tourists – just beautiful beaches.
So chilling out = Palolem/South Goa
Partying/water sports = Baga/Anjuna etc.
Basically up North you’ll have a lot of touristy things going on and I’d recommend a good mix of both. All these beaches are easily coverable in a day. So you could be staying down South in a chilled out shack and get out in the day (or later for the nitelife) to Baga! Purrrfect.
