Arambol(Harmal)

North Goa , Goa

The popularity of Arambol, a lazy beach in north Goa, is growing every year, but so far, it still retains an uncommercialised feel. Local pressure has ensured there are no resorts or classy hotels at Arambol. Just basic guesthouses, most of similar standard, and huts on the beach. The usual assortment of shacks, and textile and jewellery shops, complete the picture. Once a sleepy fishing village called Harmal, Arambol Beach has become the newest hippie haven for Goa’s “freaks”. They’re joined by a number of more normal looking visitors, who’re also attracted to the laidback environment and live music scene there. People usually have a sea bath, followed by a mud bath at the stream above the lake (its said to have healing effect for the skin) and followed by a bath at the fresh water lake. All the baths surprisingly help you to put your mind to rest. This is a place with quite a character and probably that is the reason it is gaining in popularity. Arambol is one of those place where you do not come for luxurious holidays. This is a simple little village whch gives you a completely earthy and grounded feeling. You can sit back and relax in one of the hammocks on the beach reading your favourite books and what you are really offered here is peace. The cliffs near the beaches are popular for paragliding and dolphin watching boat trips. Adjacent to the beach a few shops sell clothes, junk jewelry and handicrafts from across Goa and India. 50 kms from Panaji, it is quite easy to reach and offers the odd tourists all the tranquillity he has been look for. For the true feel of Goa, do visit Arambol and its friendly fishing village.
