If there is one place where every beach lover has always dreamt of going to, it can be none other than Goa. The serene beaches of Goa pull young and old from all corners of the world. Goa offers both tranquility and adventurism to its visitors. Beach Trekking is a recent trend that is getting all the attention apart from Goa’s famed beaches. This kind of trekking is a little different from the usual treks. The trail discovers many secluded beaches along the way. The participants cross lush green forest patches and hillocks. People love soaking the sun, enjoying the cool breeze, and capturing the mesmerizing view of the Arabian Sea.
The Arambol Beach Trek
This 5 km long trek takes you into uncharted territories. It lies in the northernmost part of Goa. The complete trek can be covered in a day and is relatively effortless compared to other hiking trails. Most part of the trail is on grassy Paliem plateau. There is a perennial water stream running along the way acting as your guide to Arambol beach.
At the finish point of this trek, you find the majestic Arambol beach. People love to take a dip in the water and play with the pristine sand. A quick wash in the freshwater lake nearby is a good idea to get rid of all the sea salt. The region around Arambol beach is also renowned for the medicinal mud, ‘Multani Mitti’. You can smear some mud over your body free of cost. On your way back you cross Goa’s least commercialized beach, the Keri beach. Arambol Beach Trek is a wonderful experience and is best enjoyed with families and friends.
Beach trekking gives you an opportunity to exhume a different perspective of life in Goa. It pushes the body out of its comfort zone. You feel closer to nature. The joy of trekking together with friends, caring and sharing with each other is truly invaluable. It is highly recommended to keep a day or two in reserve for beach trekking on your next trip to Goa.
