  • Trip introduction

    Push through casuarina trees, trek up the low cliffs to get a rolling view of the Arabian Sea. Take a dip in a freshwater lagoon with the sound of waves just nearby, rinse the salt and sand off your feet, and spend a little time playing in the medicinal mud along the banks of the stream. If you’re looking to do something off-beat on this trip to Goa, this one-day trek is perfect. You’ll end at Keri Beach, a pristine, secluded destination away from the crowds.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum group of 6 travelers is required to book this trip.

    Destination

    Arambol Beach is one of the most popular beaches in North Goa and yet maintains a sense of seclusion. The approach to the beach is through a grove of cashew trees that lend an air of the wilderness to it. The beach is equal parts rocky and sandy and also boasts of a freshwater lagoon. The cliffs surrounding the beach are often used for paragliding, and give you a spectacular view of the coastline and the waves.

    The Paliem plateau sees few visitors and is the perfect place to get a glimpse of Goa in all its majesty.

    Trip details
  • Day trek at Arambol

    Participants will be picked up from the agreed upon point in Porvorim. From here, you will be driven to Paliem plateau, which is where the trek begins. From the grassy Paliem plateau, you will trek downhill, following a stream down to the northern Arambol Beach, famous for its fresh water lake just a few metres from the sea. Here, you can relax, take a dip, wash off the salt in the sweet water lake, or even smear yourself with the medicinal mud on the banks of the stream or bathe in one of the many pools along the stream.

    After that, you will walk across the hillside, past spectacular seascapes, to reach Goa’s northernmost beach, Keri. You can explore the beach and its surroundings or just sit down and breathe in the salt water air as the sound of the waves soothes your soul. Catch one of Goa’s legendary sunsets and after that it’s time to leave this escape and head back to reality. You’ll be dropped off at Porvorim. Trip ends here.

    This trip begins in the morning and ends by 19:00 hrs. There is no accommodation for this trip.
