Once up we headed to the swimming pool. After a swim we all got ready for a day to hit the beaches of South Goa. We were four people on two Activas. We first went to Palolem Beach to buy a pair of slippers for me. (Remember, yesterday my slippers got washed away by water)
Our first beach was Rajbagh Beach. It is a beach where The Lalit is
located. The beach was white, clear and virgin. We saw a group of fishermen
getting ready with their fishing net to head to the sea.
After Rajbagh, we drove further south to Galjibagh Beach.
Enroute we saw Talpona Beach. Galjibagh Beach was a virgin beach with
absolutely no soul on this long stretched pristine beach lined with trees. It
is some 20 mins drive from Palolem and is Goa’s best kept secret.
spending some time on this beach and deciding to visit this beach the next day
in the morning we headed to Karwar. Karwar is 40 kms from Palolem and is the
first beach in Karnataka from Goa. Karwar Beach was way less crowded and much
cleaner than Palolem.

We were hungry and had lunch at a restaurant in Karwar.
On our way back we stopped over to see Polem Beach
which is the last beach of Goa.
We then headed back to our
hotel as Ashish and Charitra will be joining us in the evening.

Once in hotel we refreshed and this time Ashish made us place another board game – Cosmic Encounters. It took a lot of explanation by Ashish for us to understand the game.
After playing the game and the girls defeating the boys we
went to Palolem Beach to have dinner. We headed to Dropadi and realized that it
is full and on top of that they don’t have a waiting number system. We have to
catch hold of a table when one is empty. It was like catching hold of a seat in
government bus. After lot of waiting and watching we finally got hold of a
table. We ordered food and since it was taking long for the food to come, we
all decided to take a power nap. After the nap and the food we headed to our
hotel and slept like a dog.
