Palolem beach stretches between two magnificent headlands and the beach is lined with towering coconut palms.
Every season bamboo-hut resorts and restaurants are erected along the beach allowing tourists to stay right on the sand, only a few meters away from a swim in the Arabian Sea. The beach huts range from very basic to somewhat luxurious, with en suite huts becoming more common every year.
Palolem provides beautiful accommodation for all types of traveler with prices varying throughout the season; Christmas and New Year being the peak.
Backpackers should have no problem finding somewhere to stay by just turning up and looking around, but if you are looking for something more exclusive it may be better to try and book in advance especially during December and January. Palolem is also ideal for young families as the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and safe.
Restaurants in Palolem are varied and due to the amount of tourists, generally of a very high standard. You can get anything from local Indian delights to authentic Italian pizza and pasta, and an added bonus is that alcohol is completely legal and very accessible. (Alcohol is illegal in some Indian states). The locally produced Kingfisher beer is a favorite amongst all visitors.
