Activities

Palolem beach is one of the most beautiful places in Goa. It is surrounded by hills on both sides, resulting in a calm, idyllic sea.
Palolem is quite small, so its easy to explore on foot. Immediately to the south of Green Park is the beautiful Colomb Bay. Just beyond is Patnem and Rajbag Beaches. Don't forget to carry a torch if walking along the beach at night!

Boat Trips

Goa Dolphin trip
A popular excursion here is the dolphin viewing boat trip. A local fisherman will take you on a traditional wooden fishermen boat to visit the resident colony of dolphins. Other popular boat trips are up the Talpona river, or for a picnic to Honeymoon or Butterfly beaches, just ask Sunny at the restaurant to make you a lunch! You can also rent kayaks for your own private adventure!
