Hailed as one of the most beautiful beaches of Goa, Cola Beach is a tranquil paradise hidden from the prying eyes of tourists. Surrounded by the ocean, coconut palms and forested cliffs, Cola Beach is also home to an emerald green lagoon. Although well connected to other main beaches in South Goa, the approach road to Cola Beach might get a little cumbersome as it requires a tricky trek down the sand. One of the easiest ways to access the beach is by taking a boat from Agonda. Here's an all-you-need guide to help you make the most of your time here.
Here's A Complete Guide To Vacationing At Cola Beach
Where To Stay At Cola Beach
Cola offers very few places to sleep overnight and these obviously come at a premium. There are no beach huts or luxury star hotels at Cola, Goa. Blue Lagoon Resort Hotel, Soneka Cola Beach Hotel, Casa Diya, Samyama Retreat and Cola Beach Resort are the top choices if you do want to spend a night or two. At the northern end of the beach, you will find accommodation in traditional Rajasthani tents, complete with an ensuite bathroom and verandah. Our most favourite place to park ourselves is Dwarka Eco Beach Resort where you can enjoy views of the lagoon and the beach along with some fresh catch of the day served right. The tariffs here start around 12k a night. Dwaraka Eco Beach Resort is open from 15 October 2021 to 30 April 2022.
Where To Eat At Cola Beach
There are very few places to eat at in Cola Beach, and most of them are located inside resorts. Blue Lagoon Cola Resort offers a beachfront restaurant that has a wide range of Indian, European and Chinese style foods and a full bar. The beach shack at Casa Diya serves comfort food in the form of local preparations of fresh seafood. If you’re willing to drive around, there are a bunch of restaurants along Agonda Beach road that offer good food, out of which Fatima Corner, Manveer’s Kitchen, Kopi Desa Agonda and Blue Planet Café come highly recommended.
What To Do Around Cola Beach
Go swimming in the lagoon, and enjoy the views of the ocean as you float around. If you like a little adventure, opt for a kayaking trip down the lagoon or take a quick dip in the sea (watch out for the rocks though!). Goa offers gorgeous sunsets, but it’s extra special at Cola Beach. So make sure you stay back to watch the magical sunset and the effect it has on the landscape here. If you’re here during high tide, you’ll see an island appear a little off the beach. You can wade through and enjoy this spot while the tide lasts. For day trips from Cola Beach, you can consider going down to Butterfly Beach or even sign up for a tour of Tanshikar Spice Farm- one of the best spice farms in Goa. Palolem and Agonda beaches are close by to and can be accessed via road.
