When you visit Goa, don’t miss out on Arambol Beach that is considered to be the most beautiful beaches in Goa, and borders the Mandrem Beach and Keri Beach on two sides. We reached this happening beach from Calangute that took us approx. 1 hour. It is in North Goa but on the other end near Ashwem
& Morjim. Arambol, or used to be known as Harmal, is located 17km north of Anjuna Beach in North Goa.
