|Fishingboats on Agonda beach, south Goa|
Agonda beach is located in Canacona taluka, south Goa. The beach at Agonda is a stretch of pristine white sand lined with palm trees, it’s wide and almost 3km’s long. With large headlands protruding into the sea, clearly defining it, on either end. The quaint little village lies just behind the beach. The centre of the villages, around the church, is located roughly at the middle of the beach. A small road runs through the village and continues to run parallel with the beach in both directions. Pretty much everything on Agonda beach is on either side of this road, most places to stay, eat or drink, more than a few little shops selling all the necessity's needed for a stay on the beach, a few beauty parlours, yoga places, scooters and motorbikes for rent, and of course shops and stalls selling the usual tourist trinkets, jewellery, clothes and what have you. At the very southern, less built-up, end of the beach is a space designated for overland travellers, usually you will find about a half dozen or so of these adventurers, in trucks of various sizes, camping out in the palm grove next to the beach. At the very northern end of the beach, at the river inlet, is the place where the local fishermen keep their boats and bring their fresh catch.
