Spend a day out on the beaches of North Goa. Our favourite beaches are the less crowded Morjim, Ashvem and Mandrem; here the sea is calm and the beaches are not too rocky. The shore is lined with little cafes, shacks, and restaurants so you can spend an entire day enjoying the Goan sun, sand and sea. The beaches of Morjim, Mandrem and Ashvem are a fifty minute drive from the hotel.

6:00 am to 10:00 am

Sunday's are generally off
