Quite well-known in Goa, Arambol beach is one of the last northern beaches of the state, far from the airport at the moment, but not for long if the Mopa airport project at the border of Maharashtra sees the light one day.
Below is a map of North Goa showing Arambol beach location. And if you want to see it on map of Goa, please go to: Beaches in Goa India, main page, to see it and also for an overview of all the beaches of Goa if you wish.
Arambol beach or more exactly Harmal beach is the northern part of the 10 km beach (about 6 miles) going from Arambol on the north side to Morjim beach on the south. There's only one stretch of sand, cut by a river in some places between Mandrem beach and Ashwem beach. Arambol beach is about 2.5 km (about 1.5 mile) and then starts Mandrem beach.
Now, if you go to Arambol, you'll find all kind of tourists and amongst them some hippies and there used to be
many Israelis here.
But now, the fashion in Goa is Russian, and you see many boards written in Russian everywhere on the goan coast.
Let's discover Arambol beach and its village in pictures!
The commercial part of Arambol village is located along the main street running in parallel to the north part of the beach and ending up reaching the beach. There you have all the tourists' stuff to buy all along.
Below are some samples in pictures of what you can buy in Arambol.
The shop below is selling lamp shades, statues, the Christmas 5 star that goan people hang with a bulb inside to illuminate their front door during the Christmas period.
By the way, Christmas in Goa is really a good period to come. Not only the weather is really pleasant, but the Christmas decorations are all over the place, and houses are full of blinking and colourful lights for some weeks.
On the picture above you can see the hills between Arambol beach and
Kalacha beach. You can go
to Kalacha beach through
a pathway between the two beaches. On the picture below you can see in the background, the lane of shops along the
coast, leading to Kalacha.
In the foreground, are sitted Lamanis women who sell items on the beach during the tourist season. Most of them can be quite pestering, but some others are nice. An advice: always haggle with them!
The main access to Arambol beach is from the north side of the beach, but you have many other access ways to the beach, and we gonna see some of them later.
Now, better than words, let's look at some pictures of the north side of the beach.
The busiest part of Arambol beach is on the north side of it, but it's far from being crowded as in Calangute beach for example. As you can see with the picture above, it's still reasonable.
