Arambhol Beach Goa

Arambhol Beach Goa | Top 5 Things to Explore When You Are Around

Goa is a pocket-sized island with several serene beaches to explore. The first beach vibe I feel is Arambhol Beach whenever I visit here. This is one of the cleanest and greenest beaches in North Goa.  Arambhol is a village in the Pernem region of North Goa. This is the most adopted Beach by many foreigners. Peaceful beaches, Greenery around the beach, and most hippie activities around the beach are the reasons preferred by foreigners. This is one of the famous beaches in Goa. Arambhol Beach is not only known for salty beach water but it is famous for its sweet water lake located at the adjacent corner of the beach. Dipping and swimming are allowed in the Lake so one can explore that too.

How to Reach Arambhol Beach in North Goa?

Arambhol is a village located in the Pernem region of North Goa and it is easily accessible from any part of Goa.
If you are traveling from Panjim then the distance is around 50km, if you are traveling from Calangute Baga Beach then the distance is 22km, and from South Goa, the distance to Beach is 100 km. The distance from Thivim to Arambhol Beach is just 30 km. Thivim railway station is easily accessible from many states of India.

Mode of Transportation to reach Arambhol Beach

It is said that Goa is quite expensive when it comes to reaching from one place to another, isn't it? I have experienced this every time I visit Goa. Let me tell you all Arambhol can be reached as per your budget constraints.
It would be much more costly if you hit a direct taxi to reach Arambhol Beach. There are direct taxis available with high frequency but the only thing you need to scissor your purse.
Local buses run to and from Arambhol to many other places you wish to travel from. The only thing you need to do is get help from locals to know about the timing of the buses since the frequency is quite low but it is accessible.
The cheapest mode of transportation to reach Arambhol village is rented by bike or car. If you don't get a private vehicle then you can rent out a bike or car and can easily access Arambhol Beach. There is a parking space available near the beach for part of our vehicle. Another benefit to renting our own vehicle is time-consuming and you can reach it at your convenience.
