Hippy’s hidden haven turned backpacker paradise, this beach is now well enough known to attract all kinds, but still hums to the laid back tunes of its past. Visitors and the local authorities seem to have to right idea about preserving Palolem’s reputation for being unspoiled and even its selection as Jason Borne, from The Borne Identity fame’s residence in India has brought in more crowds but not spoiled the view (watch the beginning of the film for a proper appreciation of this beaches appeal.).

Visitors used to stay in ex-fishermen’s shacks on the beach, and some still do, but you can also stay in a resort if you’ve hung up your love beads for Tiffany.

Currents are gentle enough to say it’s safe for all swimmers and it makes a pretty vista from either end.
