Jump to navigation Jump to search

Arambol is a village in North Goa, India.

Understand[edit]

Arambol Beach attracts many international tourists, mainly during the winter season between November and March. Arambol has a distinct bohemian feel which is no longer found in other areas, such as Calangute and this inevitably attracts many alternative travellers. Arambol beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Goa, amongst many other popular locations including Vagator, Anjuna and Palolem.

A short walk north off the main beach is a smaller beach with a "fresh water lake" close to the sea. The water here is a mixture of fresh water and sea water. The jungle valley, enclosed between low hills hide a spectacular banyan tree.

Arambol is expanding quickly, and prices are rising for real estate, rent, foods and services.

Get in[edit]

Arambol is approximately a two-hour drive from the Dabolim Airport.

Buses go from Pernem a few times every day.
