This is about a unique and romantic place in Goa. We don’t want it to get crowded. So, keep this information to yourself. Don’t share this blog.
Everybody knows Goa is the most romantic destination. Scenic beaches, warm weather, free flow of music and liquor, Goa is the perfect place to be with your special one. But here, I won’t ramble what you already know about Goa. I will talk about a hidden jewel, a lesser known place to visit in Goa – a fresh water lagoon on the northernmost Arambol beach in Goa. You have heard about beaches in Goa but how about soaking in a fresh water lagoon amidst dense forest, just a trek away!
Go right up to the last beach in North Goa, Arambol.Take a short, romantic trek up the cliff from the beach to reach the lagoon. A narrow pathway meandering amidst dense forest, sounds of chirping birds, leaves rustling under your feet, huge branches of trees as obstacles and soon you will hear and see rumbling water beneath.
Tip: Remember to carry your own beer and snacks as you won’t get anything up there.
After a 15-20 minutes trek you will see water flowing besides you. This water collects in a small lagoon at small intervals. Keep trekking till you find your favourite spot. This place is away from the maddening crowd (I am guessing very few people know about this place) and so you have a lagoon all by yourself. Soak in the water while the sun plays hide and seek amidst trees, small fishes turn iridescent with sunlight and birds chirp around. The water is crystal clear and you can see small fishes moving all around.
Another interesting thing about this play is clay rocks. Just scrape some natural clay, rub with water and apply on your face. You have your natural, organic and free spa, right there.
With beer, in hand, clay pack on face, fishes nibbling at feet and just us for company we managed to spend around 4-5 hours at this lagoon in Goa. I never wanted to get out of this fresh water lagoon in Goa.
If you are a couple in love or on honeymoon I strongly recommend you to visit this fresh water lagoon in Arambol beach. It is a quiet place with rarely a couple or two to spot.
