Until recently there was no real development here with the exception of The L’Amour resort and the O Palmar Cottages at the sea front. Now there is the new Royal Palm Resort, overlooking the beautiful ‘Lotus Lake’, and other hotels are set to follow. Most visitors stay in cottages or local homes in the village, approximately 500m from the beach.
Though there are a few cafes and restaurants in the village, most are on the beach. Most are fairly similar, though Johncy’s appears to be most popular.
Whilst a few buses leave from the sea front, they are irregular, and it’s wisest to wait at the main crossroads by the Maria Hall. There is a pleasant cafe opposite the hall. Buses go to Margao, Colva and Cavelossim..
Margao 7km, Colva 3km,
Cavelossim 9km.
