Agonda is known for being a long and isolated stretch of beach which is quiet and peaceful with relatively few tourists. This beach is referred to as the Silent Beach. Agonda has very few attractions, almost everything here is untouched. Since it’s isolated, this beach hasn’t got much tourist traffic. Off late, however, it seems to be getting more popular and a few shacks are coming up. The waters here may not be as ideal if you’re looking to swim but for sunbathers, it is a beach you will enjoy.
Agonda beach is a Ridley turtle nesting site, an endangered species that the villages around are keen on protecting. Hence, this beach is not very commercial and the villagers intend to keep it that way.

Things to do in Agonda
If the beach is too calm for you and you’d like to see some sights of south Goa, take the 18 km drive to Cabo de Rama Fort, one of the oldest forts in Goa. If the beach is not calm enough, head north from Agonda for about 10 km to Cola/Khola Beach, another secluded much smaller beach that is almost completely cut off from the outside.
