Ashwem Beach

Ashwem is famous for its rocky beach that has been shaped by shellfish, giving the rocks a unique shape. The beach isn’t well known among tourists making it an ideal place for people looking for some alone time at a beautiful location.

Ashwem also stands out for its location north of the nesting place of the Olive Ridley Turtle, tourists and Animal Rights Activists come from different parts of Goa and beyond to witness this scene.

Attractions in Ashvem

The Restaurants

Ashwem has quite a few restaurants along the roads that lead up to the beach. These range from Italian to Continental and everything in between. It isn’t just known for its posh food but also the food available in shacks. Shacks in Ashvem prepare some of the tastiest meals you’ve ever eaten, it cannot however be compared to a restaurant as they are two completely different experiences.

The Scenery

Ashvem has a beautiful scenery known for its rocks all around it carved by the shellfish. The view that the beach provides is one of the most beautiful sights ever seen. Ashwem isn’t very crowded which only adds to it beauty that would’ve been ruined amidst a large audience.

The Beach

The beach was known for having large groups of turtles coming up to the shores to lay their eggs. Tourists and foreigners would travel many miles to witness this sight. However this is currently on a decline due to pollution and other environmental hazards that are detrimental to their well being.

Suggested Plan for a Day in Ashwem

Spend your morning going for a walk on the beach. Its a healthy, nice and peaceful way to pass your time. Followed by lunch at a shack on the beach. After lunch it would be a wise idea to stay indoors as the beach gets really hot and a tan would be the least of your concerns. The evening is a good time to go exploring and looking at the area around the beach. Watching the sun set puts an end to a beautiful day and then its off to find a restaurant to get dinner, if you still have unspent energy, hitting a nightclub might be a good idea.
