Agonda, a 3km long stretch of white sand, is well known as one of the most beautiful, isolated, serene, calm and quiet beaches in India, and it is rated as one of the best beaches in Asia. Covered with palm trees and bright, clean water, Agonda is a charming, clean, green and protected bay.
Luckily, Agonda is also the only beach in Goa where salesmen, hawkers and masseurs are not allowed on the beach, so you can truly relax and unwind undisturbed.

In Agonda there are no nightclubs, commercial hotels or resorts, although those who want to experience the party scene can do so just 7km away, at Palolem beach.
