The full list of Goa's Beaches: North Goa to South Goa.

There was a time when Goa had a number of ‘secret’ beaches. In other words the kind of beaches neither mentioned in the guidebooks nor marked in the maps. The scoop is shared by word of mouth among the seasoned backpackers. Not anymore. Though the intensity varies, all of the Goan beaches are now mobbed by both domestic and foreign tourists. Indians do it during their summer holidays and the western backpackers and holidaymakers make a stampede during the winter months sandwiched with the New Year bang.
Far from a typical tourist trap,Goa still retains its old-world charm as an explorable destination.

The 150 kilometer ( 93 miles) coastal belt is lined with well over two dozen beaches. And the discovery of ‘new’ beaches still continues!
From south to north the ‘list’ goes something like this.

By the way when you need to take a break from the hectic beach life at Goa , think of Hampi. There is nothing in common between Goa and Hampi worth a comparison. However backpackers have drawn a parallel between Goa and Hampi. There is even a place called the “Goan Corner” in Hampi . They marched from Goa to Hampi in search of a more laidback place than Goa. And they found it in the Virupapur Gadde of Hampi. Once you reach this area of Hampi, the bamboo hut filled Palolem beach appears as if a buzzing metro!
When you travel from Goa to Hampi , you are practically tracing the trail of the Arabian horses brought to Hampi from the ports of Goa.
Though not seen in a favorable light , there were (and still are ) attempts to replicate the Rave parties of Goa in Hampi. The Goa hangover still hangs in the air , especially the weeks following the new year eve. Though the nearest beach is a few hundred kilometers away , Virupapur Gadde is Hampi’s clumsy answer to Goa's laidback scenes.
