Agonda Beach – I { GOA }

After spending time in North Goa, staying at Morjim, we moved onto South Goa. After spending the day at Candolim on our way to the south, we drove for about an hour and a half before reaching Agonda which falls north of Palolem, Goa. We stayed for 3 nights at The Monsoon Guest House bang on Agonda beach run by Dirk. I think he is German. It cost us ₹ 5,100 for all 3 nights and we stayed in a first floor beach facing hut (we were upgraded to this hut last minute luckily for the same price). The first floor huts have a better sea view and privacy I feel.

Monsoon Guest house is a lovely place to stay. They have group yoga in the mornings for those who can wake up that early. And their breakfasts are absolutely amazing. They also have THE best nutella banana pancakes I have eaten anywhere in Goa. That’s the view from their restaurant.

Agonda beach is a very quiet and spacious beach. With long stretches of fine sand and no one to bother you. No local vendors trying to sell anything. Just you, your beach mat, some sunscreen, the sun and the salt water. I even did a bit of yoga right on the beach (my first time). All day everyday on the beach.

That’s the view we had from our beach hut. It was an absolutely splendid golden light coming in at dusk. We would sit on our terrace and drink port wine and sometimes even sleep out. What I wouldn’t give to go back to those days…*sigh*

The sunsets are something you can never really have enough of in Goa. I would wait patiently and look at the sun go down the horizon everyday thinking that the next day I’d probably be doing something else but I’d find myself waiting for the sunset everyday and just looking out into the sea till the sun went down like I was in a trance. And it wasn’t just me. It was EVERYONE around me – tourists, locals, Indians, foreigners, kids, old people…It really is magical.

    So cool to see the exact hut that we stayed in. Monsoon was a wonderful place to stay – fantastic people in a beautiful setting. Thanks Dirk, and Flynn
