Bambolim beach is a quite beach located about 7 kms. from Panaji. It is lined up with trees and shrub vegetation with many paths leading to the beach. Many Goa University students visit this beach during there free time due to the close proximity to the institute. The beach is clean and quiet, yet beautiful. The shoreline is lined with rocks and palm groves.
Besides the Bambolim Beach resort, there are no major hotels in the area. Not many people visit the beach. During most part of the year the beach is deserted as Bambolim is a rocky beach interspersed with small stretches of sandy areas. However new Resorts are coming up in the area and the beach will soon be bustling with activity in a couple of years from now. There is no bus service to Bambolim beach, however the beach is well connected by road.
Located in North Goa, this peaceful little beach is a haven for those who want to enjoy the sand and surf without the crowds that pepper most of the other beaches in North Goa. The beach is a secluded stretch of sand and rocks, lined on the landward side with swathes of swaying coconut palms, which provide a cool and shady place to relax.
The Bambolim beach is located near the little seaside town of Bambolim which is about 7km from Panaji, the capital city of Goa. Although there is no bus service to the beach, it is quite accessible by road and can be reached using the services of a pilot or taxi service.
Bambolim beach, like most of the beaches in Goa is at its best during the tourist season, from October to March. Those who choose to visit between March and June, should beware the hot sun, and carry water and sunscreen. From June to September, the monsoon season, the beach has its own peculiar charm, but the sea is not safe to swim in
The Bambolim beach is a great place to have a beach picnic and enjoy the quiet and solitude of one of the less frequented beaches in Goa, whilst at the same time, being more accessible than most of the other secluded beaches.
The Bambolim Beach Resort, which is located nearby provides rooms for rent and also has a great restaurant which serves a variety of different cuisines ranging from authentic and spicy Goan fare to cool continental delights.
Unlike most of the other beaches of Goa, the Bambolim beach is not cluttered with vendors and shacks lining the shore cheek by jowl, instead it is a stretch of golden sand interspersed with rocky outcroppings, and of course boarded by the blue waters of the Arabian Sea.
The beach is also a popular hangout for university students who like to chill there for a while after their lectures, since this is the closest beach to the University of Goa. The beach is also popular with fishermen, both pleasure fishing and serious fishing.
