Palolem Beach is located in Cancona taluka (South Goa) around 37 kms from Margao. It is a cove with the Western ghats as a backdrop. Palolem is one of the most gorgeous and enchanting beaches in Goa. The beach is less crowded as compared to the North Goa beaches. The white silvery sands of the beach and the glorious waters of the beach reflecting the clear blue skies make it a favourite haunt of both Indian and foreign tourists.
There are regular buses from Margao to Cancona and Karwar.
