Colomb Travel Guide

Colomb Overview

Tucked between Palolem and Patnem beaches is the small fishing village of Colomb. The shores of Colomb are rocky and not particularly good for swimming, so most of what little activity there is here, takes place on land.  Ample quantities of quietude and peacefulness can be found Colomb, with the only sounds coming from the waves lapping on the shore and the various local wildlife.  Not much of anything goes on in this sleeply village.  Visitors, often on long-termers, happily watch the tide go in and out day after day. 

 

Often overlooked by South Goan visitors, Colomb can be an excellent choice to make your homebase if you’re planning to stay in the south.  Strategically located walking distance between Palolem to the north and Patnem to the south, Colomb is an ideal location with a handful of budget accommodation options.

 

Although not overly touristy, you can sill find a few shops and jewelry stands on the main road, as well as a handful of shanty style restaurants.   Like many places in Goa, Colomb is a hotbed for alternative therapies, yoga, massage, acupuncture, and perhaps practiced most of all….the art of chillin’.   

 

The best way to get around Colomb is either on foot or to rent a motorcycle from one of the local bungalows.   Supplies, phone store, and bank with an ATM machine can be found in the nearby town of Chaudi.
