I love beaches (and mountains too). Our nation is really incredible which offering almost all sort of natural sights and scenes. With a coastline which stretches more than 7000 kms, from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal, the Indian landmass offers tourists a plethora of beautiful beaches. Here’s my list of 11 most beautiful beaches in India.
Agonda Beach, Goa
If sun baked white sands and surf friendly shimmering waters are what you crave for, Agonda is where you should head. This enchanting beach, considered one of India’s most beautiful is located in southern Goa. If solitude is what you seek, this is a great place to unwind.
Neil Island Beach, Andaman
Supernaturally beautiful, this island is a part of the enthralling archipelago of Andaman Islands and is the preferred choice of beach lovers. Its magically clear waters and fine warm sands have lured tourists from around the world. The pristine beach is home to a variety of flora and fauna.
Candolim Beach, Goa
For the more boisterous amongst tourists, Goa offers Candolim beach, famous for its psychedelic and trance parties. It is located in a small village in northern Goa, and has earned its reputation as the freak capital owing to its magical dancing nights.
Kovalam Beach, Kerala
This is one of the finest beaches in the Indian coastline and is often referred to as ‘paradise of the south’. And it’s not without reason. With its clear azure skies, idyllic sea waters, and soft whitish sands this is pastoral relief for tourists from India and around the world.
Coral Island Beach, Andaman
Being a part of the Andaman Islands, this beach is a favorite amongst foreign tourists in India who wish to unwind in a remote alienated place and become one with nature. And while you are there indulge in outdoor activities like snorkeling in shallow waters or cycling along the sandy beaches. I feel blessed to have visited to this amazing beach.
Ram Krishna Beach, Vizag
Vizag, previously known as Visakhapatnam is has a lot to offer to it’s visitors. Ram Krishna beach is one of the most popular beaches in Vizag and is perfect spend a peaceful evening.
Mahabalipuram Beach, Chennai
This is a huge departure from the usual beaches found in India, in the sense that it captivates with its shore temples. It’s an amalgamation of surreal natural beauty and the echo of the greatness of Indian architecture.
Gopalpur Beach, Orrisa
For a lot of travelers, this beach is more of a temporary idyllic unwinding space and less of a holiday destination. Gopalpur beach is about 180kms from Bhuvneshwar city. It is famous for it’s view of golden sand and gentle slopes. If you are looking for a place perfect for sea swimming and sun bathing, Gopalpur beach is for you!
Karaikal Beach, Pondicherry
Karaikal beach captivates tourists with its sheer beauty. The beach is easily accessible by regular buses from Pondicherry. The beach, famous for gorgeous sunsets and a boating club located in the backwaters of the Arasalar River has lured tourists from all over the country.
Bangaram Beach, Lakshadweep
Its coral reefs and clear blue waters make this place extra special. A very tourist friendly beach, Bangaram also delights its visitors with such adventure activities as kayaking, glass bottom boat sailing as well as turtle snorkeling. If exotic and splendid is what you relish, Bangaram is waiting for you.
Gokarna beach, Gokarna
Still not popular among Indians, the main Gokarna beach is one of the most beautiful beaches. Gokarna beach is very peaceful and calm as compared to other famous beaches.
