Agonda Travel Guide

Agonda Overview

Ultra tranquil, stunningly beautiful and with very little tourist activity, Agonda beach is the destination for those seeking to dropout and escape life for a while.   This federally protected beach is one of three locations in India where sea turtles lay eggs and therefore has seen very little development. Agonda beach is long and wide and although backed by scattered beach huts and restaurants, almost always feels deserted. 

 
The village of Agonda is a traditional Goan fishing village and it still holds its strong rural flavor. The villagers are warm and friendly and always ready to offer a helping hand.   People come to Agonda to relax, soak up the sun and not do much of anything.
 
Agonda is located in a secluded location in the South of Goa, approximately 90 minutes from DabolimAirport, and 30 km from Palolem. Once in Agonda it’s easy enough to get around by foot, taxi or rickshaw. There are also plenty of opportunities to rent motorbikes if you want to visit, Palolem Beach and Patnem Beach to the south and Canaguinim Beach and Betul Beach to the north.

Things to do in Agonda

Agonda Beach

Not surprising, the beach is the big draw to Agonda. Spend the day sunning yourself on the beach and cooling off in the tranquil waters.
 
Jungle Hotel – Located on the far southern shores of Agonda and up in the hills is a very unique site. The XX hotel was under construction, and nearly complete, in the early 1990’s when construction halted. It was to be the poshest seven star hotel in the South of Goa, but everything ended suddenly with the assassination of the Principal financial party, and has sat untouched for the past 20 plus years, slowly being eaten by the jungle. Now home to various bird species and monkeys, the hotel looks like something out of Indian Jones or Greystrok.
 
Blue Planet Café – located well off the beach and on the road to Palolem, this café/restaurant is worth the effort to get to. Serving all organic, as well and vegetarian and vegan health food, it’s known for its delicious food cooked with love. 
 
Cabo de Rama Fort – Located 12 Km north of Agonda, lay the ruins of Cabo de Rama Fort is worth a look. Dating back before the 1763 rebuild by the Portuguese, the present day condition is not well maintained, but beautiful and interesting nonetheless.
