Then there is the beach that is the furthest north: Arambol also called Harmal. The sand is soft and white, there are cottages on the red laterite slopes, rocks in some places, a freshwater pond, and the approach road is lined with shacks offering souvenirs and clothes.

When you reach Harmal, you are 50 km away from Panaji. If you have traveled on this coastal quest with us, you will have visited nineteen of the better-known beaches of Goa.
