Our Arambol beach review

Arambol beach is one of the best beaches in Goa, India. Whether you’re looking for relaxation or adventure, Arambol Beach is a must-visit for anyone visiting Goa. It has laid-back atmosphere, warm sea with enjoyable waves and golden sand. We found it nice and clean. There is not so many people like on a Baga beach which was very crowded. Therefore you can easily enjoy your trip without getting disturbed by people.
