The beaches of Goa attract tourists from all over the world. However, when it comes to the beaches, there is much more to discover that the rather commonly known Vagator, Calangute, Baga, or Anjuna. If you have had enough of the colorful nightlives, adventurous times and exiting shacks, then a number of less crowded beaches in Goa have many fine things to offer.
1. Agonda Beach
The beach that comes under the UNESCO heritage is close to the busy cities of Patnem and Palolem. Yet, with the calm sea, laid back ambiance, easy-going days and the super quite nights, it is one of the most peaceful beaches in Goa. Forget the parties and the crowd; soak in the sun in this very clean beach.

So if you have basic swimming skill, you might like to swim along the borders. However, since it is a turtle protected beach, it remains open for about six months for its visitors. It is a popular venue for beach yoga training. You can also enjoy side activities like going for a dolphin trip, or a trip to the butterfly beach, enjoy live music or join a yoga school.
2. Cola Beach
While driving towards north from the Canacoa town, the Cola beach comes next to the Agonda beach. This hidden gem in South Goa remains a lesser explored beach for an obvious reason. The virgin beaches in Goa like Cola might not be the best beach for traveling with your family. This is simply because of its remote location. You need to drive up steep cliffs to reach there. So it is not a good idea to get there with a small clearance car. But once you get there, you will find that the pain is worth taking. There are a few shacks, and the sea is somewhat rocky. However, the main attraction of the cola beach lies in its fantastic lagoon, which is lined with lush palm trees. The lagoon is warm, picturesque, and brilliant to swim in. However, it might not be the best place to visit in the rainy season.
3. Betalbatim Beach
It is a great option for those who find that the nearby Colva beach is excessively crowded. You can easily reach here from Madgaon. Located in South Goa, it lies in between the twin beaches of Majorda and Colva, the nearest town being Vasco da Gama. It has a few shacks. It has tiny open restaurants where you can wine dine while experiencing the sunset. This low on crowd beach has some comfortable accommodation ideas in its proximity. Enjoy drinking some great quality liquor from the beachside bars.
4. Arossim Beach
It is basically an extension of the Cansaulim and Cuelim beaches. It is just 12 km away from Margao. The Dabolim international airport is just 16 km away from the beach. It is the starting point of the coastline of South Goa. Spending some days here is no less than spending some days on a private beach. It is a very peaceful beach, where you would like to spend days reading, doing yoga, and exercise. Drinking good quality rum and savoring kinds of seafood by the waves come as incentives. However, in virgin beaches in Goa like these generally, offer lesser water sports.
5. Ashwem Beach

Last but never the least; this small beach is located in between the north of Anjuna, and the South of Vagator. It is not located remotely, yet it is one of the less crowded beaches in Goa. The secluded and relatively unexplored beach is just the place for the privacy lovers.
