The Remote Sands of Honeymoon Beach

Ever wondered how it would be to be the only person or couple on a pristine beach? Well, that wonder will turn to reality if you set foot on the Honeymoon Beach, a secluded beach cut off from all civilization on the Goan coastline of India.

The remote sands of Honeymoon Beach 
The Honeymoon beach is a small stretch of sand that is surrounded by small ranges of hills and lush green forests. And in front of it lies the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea. The nearest civilization from this place is Palolem in the Canacona district of South Goa. It takes about an hour by boat to reach here. If you need a vacation rental be sure to check out: Goa Vacation Rentals for a great deal!

In terms of infrastructure, this beach has absolutely nothing. And that in my mind is its best asset. The waters are great for swimming too. This beach is also a great place for camping. You can catch your fish and do your own sweet barbecue. However, do ensure that you carry all your trash back to civilization.

This is also the place where one can spot a lot of dolphins early in the morning. Early morning treks to the top of the hill peaks offer great panoramic views of the picturesque Goan landscape.

The sands of this beach unlike the rest of the more popular beaches is very soft. So soft that your foot can sink in quite a bit. The place is so remote that your footprint will stay on till the next high tide session.

All in all a bang up beach destination. And as the name suggests, it offers the best privacy for the adventurous honeymooning couple. For access to the market, restaurants and clubs, Palolem Beach is just an hour away.
