South Goa is famed for its laid-back, pristine beaches, wildlife watching and beautiful local surroundings. Agonda is an idyllic golden sandy beach that is located in the quieter area of Goa, 9km away from the busier Palolem. Fringed by palm trees, the scarcely populated balmy cove stretches across 3km and has a small village road that runs adjacent to the beach. The beach has a variety of high quality restaurants to chose from, many specialising in delicious freshly caught fish.
Agonda is home to an abundance of flora and fauna, and has been designated as a breeding site for the Olive Ridley turtles that can be seen nesting and hatching from October until April. Boat trips can be organised to see pods of dolphins that live in the local waters, and the surrounding wetlands provide ample wildlife sighting opportunities.
My Place are right behind the turtle conservation centre, so offer an unbeatable opportunity for late night turtle watching.
