Ashvem Beach (as well known as Ashwem Beach) is located in the north of Goa on the stretch of beach that begins on the bank of the River Chapora in the south and continues almost right along to the Querim beach on the bank of the River Terekhol in the north. The Aswem Beach is found side by side with two other famous beaches of Goa – the Morjim Beach in the south and the Mandrem Beach in the north. Almost all tourists who have ever visited this amazing place single heartedly recommend this resort as the best place in the North Goa for budget holidays spent together with children of all ages.
The main advantage of Ashvem Beach is its small population. There are not too many hotels, cottages and other accommodation units in Ashvem. The resort is popular mostly among senior European tourists and families with children that prefer to spend their holidays in places away from the busy beaches as well as the roads and highways.
The beach at Ashvem is wide and desolated. The fine white sand is backdroped by tall palms and pine trees. The sea here is shallow and during the season, which lasts from October till April, it reaches the temperature of about 30°C. Through the northern part of the beach runs a small river, and sometimes you can even see volcanic rocks here. The mood at Ashvem beach is one of the more laid back and relaxed beaches in Goa, and it never gets really crowded.
The resort has a good selection of places to stay and to have a quick bite. The accommodation units are represented mostly by beach huts and shacks, but still there are few more up-market beach resorts and hotels in Ashvem. Few shacks even compete against each other to be called the most suitable accommodation units in the resort. All places to stay in have restaurants and bars where tourists are suggested to try amazingly tasty dishes of local and European cuisines. But however, you should not expect that you will be allowed to use the chaise longue absolutely free: it’s most likely that you will need to pay extra for them.
Also, the high quality massages and Ayurvedic procedures are recommended to be tried.
