Hotels, Huts and Guesthouses, Restaurants in Palolem

 

Regulations in Palolem say that should be no permanent structures on the beach so they are just single and double huts. If you want a permanent structure such as a room or hotel it will be off the beach on the road near by. The few hotel built here are some what of the beach. 

 

 

 

Palolem Beach just 10 years ago was a just another sleeping fishing village but now it is the Beach hut capital of Goa and perhaps the world. Here you can find all sorts of huts, shacks, bungalows, guest houses and hotels. Restaurants, bars beach huts for every taste and budget. Over 500 rooms and 400 restaurants take your picks. Pizza, organic tofu, curry fish perhaps? The palm trees still hold their allure, fortunately they are protected under 'Feni Law.' On average each Goan eat 1.5 coconuts per day! So you'll be hanging your hammock under someones grocery basket.

 

 

The night life is some what subdued, with strict noise bans after 11:00pm. To answer the call a 'headphone club' has been started Saturday nights at Neptunes Point.

Palolem is crescent shaped and offers a bay teaming with fish

 

and the occasional dolphins. Keep an eye out early in the morning, look just out from the beach you will soon see a dolphin jumping.

The front beach huts always cost more. Everyone want to be right in front of the beach, but you should notice there is usually a restaurant underneath or near by.
