Our last stop in Goa was the best. Palolem is a beautiful beach, a 4km stretch of white sand and palm trees. The water is really flat and easy to swim. The beach is extremely clean and the people visiting are all here for the same reason-to relax and enjoy the beauty of the place.
It was my favourite place in Goa and possibly one of the best beaches I have seen. The vibe was so relaxed. There was excellent shopping and food. We spent one morning kayaking out to sea and saw dolphins as well as a local fisher boat full of fishermen who were pulling in the nets while singing. It was a really uniquely beautiful experience to witness these men doing their daily jobs 3km out to sea. In India it is difficult to find an authentic experience so when we see something like this it is really lovely.
We also did another cooking class. This one was better than the last one we had participated in in Anjuna because we were the only two there and the chef modified the menu so that the dishes were vegan (except for malai kofta - Evans favourite). It was our six month anniversary that day too so it was really nice to have a few drinks while cooking and enjoy a candlelit dinner of our own food after.
Our accommodation was a tree house hut which was accessed by steep stairs and had views of the water. Palolem is an excellent place to visit for beautiful beaches, food and overall vibe. Before coming to India i would never have thought of it as a country that would have some of the best beaches or as a place that you would come to relax but it is surprising me at every turn. What a diverse, amazing country it is.
