beaches along the west coast

the best beaches in india are definitely along the west coast starting from south maharashtra along goa, karnataka and kerala...
the more popular beaches are in goa (arambol, anjuna, baga, calangute , palolem etc.)and in kerala(kovallam, varkela n cherai)...
there are many less crowded but beautiful beaches like tarkarli n ganapatiphule(in maharashtra),devbag n gokarna(in karnataka) ..

happy beach tripping..

Talking

Andamans has great beaches.

U missed Karnatka and andhra Pradesh..here

They have the best beaches.

Karnataka - Karwar, Malpe, Marwante, gokarka, Ullal and Mangalore - r have great baches.

andhra pradesh - Vizag, Machilipatnam,...beach is good.

Orissa too has great beaches - Puri and Gopalpur - Chilk lake..is awesome...

I don´t know if it has changed over the last couple of years, but when I was in Puri, it was more like Pu(blic toilet)ri. Can´t beleive they´re crapping on the beach, well I can belive it, but I just feel sorry that they do. This puts Puri pretty far down the list for me..

he he that keeps the rif raf out.

Actually i think it is worse in mamalapuram. Puri has a very long beach.
The problem is that the besides the main western tourist area is a huge camp of 10,000+ displaced fishermen families from andreapradesh. I think some aid agency may have build a few toliet, but the locasl still prefer the 'beach flush' method. So what out for floaties if you go swimming


other than that puri is highly atmospheric place and a terrific destination, considering it close to calcutta as well. There is bubaneshwar and the sun temples.. doesn't get much better than this. throw in a trip to darjeeling and sikkim and you have the perfect 4-6 weeks india experience!

Yep afraid so ,the area is fascinating and well worth a visit ,but the beach Mamalapuram is just as bad and the beach at visak imho is nothing to write home about .The west coast definitely has the best beaches to laze around on

Also Srivardhan, Alibaag and Murud in Maharashtra are worth mentioning.

Every beach has it's own uniqness.
I will prefer a secluded one. May be Andamans.

there are certain attributes that i look for to rate it as a good beach

Colour of the water - light greenish blue - like swimming pool

Colour of sand - White / light brown / golden

calmness, the scenic beauty around

not very steep / water not very wild

Not all crowded / silent.

My personal favourite include beaches of Lakshwadweep, Andamans, Baga & Palolem & Nagoa ( Diu )

Nagoa ( Diu ) - people who can't afford to go to Lakshwadweep, Andamans and do not like to go Goa either because of the mad rush.

Nagoa ( gujarat state - Diu UT )is the place to be. Have a look at it in google earth. You would love it.

Hey you guys got it all wrong man. When one says best beach i would rank it on the basis of 1. how clean 2. how exclusive 3. how not crowded. And my vote would go to mandvi beach in kutch any day. Have a look at in in google earth. This is the beach adjoining the Vijay Vilas Palace.
