This is one of the oldest forts in Goa, built before the arrival of the Portuguese. With the historic significance related with its name, Cabo De Rama has a mythological legend. Lord Rama accompanied by his wife Sita took refuge here during his exile from Ayodhya for 14 years. Inside the Cabo De Rama Fort, there is the church of Santo Antonio which is in excellent condition and is still used by devotees. The white church and the black fort provide a photographic picture of stark contrast. People come here to pray and just enjoy the mystical atmosphere of the fort. Cliffs drop steeply to the sea provide a panoramic outlook of the surrounding areas, at the western side of the fortress. The fort provides majestic views of the entire length of Colva beach and the Canacona stretch. How to get there:One can visit the Cabo De Rama fort by hiring a taxi from anywhere in Goa.
Palolem beach is a natural bay surrounded by lofty headlands on either sides, resulting in a calm, idyllic sea with a gently sloping bed which allows you to walk up to 100 m out from the beach. The beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself. It is about 1.61 km long and is crescent-shaped – one can view the whole beach from either end. Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea. The depth of the sea increases gradually, it being shallowest at the northern ends of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast. Palolem is quite small, so easy to explore on foot. There is a variety of eateries serving both local and international food, as well as bars along the beach.
Cola/Khola Beach is fantastically beautiful, picturesquely situated in small bays of the Arabian Sea, 4 km north from Agonda Beach. Tourists choose this place because of the immediate proximity to the beach with fresh and salt water. Behind the Great (South) Cola there is a lagoon, into which a small river flows. That’s why the water here is always clean, cool and fresh.You can rent here cute huts. There are also bars and shacks here. Prices are higher in Khola Beach than in any other part of Goa. Cola/Khola Beaches is a suitable and perfect place for a short rest.
Abba’s Glory Land is 30 to 40 metres (1 minute walk) away from the beautiful Agonda Beach and is only a short stroll from the main village. The beautiful sandy beach and blue seas is ofcourse a walk in Paradise. Agonda’s beach is very simple and natural. It is very quiet place, not suitable for the party crowd. The beach is famous as a Turtle nesting site. These animals are endangered. Please keep the noise level and the lights down at night at the beach to give them a chance to nest. The Panchayat ( village administration) is very invested in not allowing Agonda to become another overcrowded Palolem. Anything you can do to minimize waste, save water or electricity will be much appreciated since the village is struggling to avoid environmental degradation and preserve it’s beauty for the next generation.
