Beaches in India | Beach Locations in India


India has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful beaches in the world. Its long coastline ensures that there are long stretches of sands along its many azure seas that are eye's delight on their own right. The palm trees, the little huts, the coconut groves, the colourful hammocks that line these beaches add more charm to this natural splendour.

Goa is the most favoured destination for a comprehensive beach holiday experience. Goa has an enviable stretch of beaches complete with tourist friendly facilities and accommodation.
