Agonda Beach Goa – The Beauty of Beach

A refreshingly undisturbed experience

Although most of the times, the awesome night life in Goa is what everyone considers a great vacation in Goa to be, Goa does have a few surprises up its sleeve. Unlike the regular, Agonda beach Goa in Goa is a surprise package. Stretching for miles on end, this agonda beach is lesser known as a party hub and is known as an ideal beach for those who want to just relax and spend some time away from the bustle of the city. The first thing which a traveler notices about this beach is its aloofness and absence of hawkers on the beach. In fact, hawkers are not allowed on Agonda Beach Goa. This is one of the reasons why one can whole-heartedly enjoy the scenic beauty of the beach and not get disturbed. More calmness and less shacks and huts on the shore. So for the ones who love to hear the sound of crashing waves and get mesmerized by the view of a heart-melting sunrise and sunset view, Agonda beach goa is the best beach in Goa to visit.
