Carmona Beach is the name of a small part of South Goa sea coastline washed by warm waters of Arabian Sea. The resort has got its name from the name of the nearby village. The place is also known as Zalor Beach. The neighboring beaches are Fatrade and Varca Beaches in the north and Cavelossim Beach resort in the south. All of these great, fantastical resorts belong to Salcette municipal region (Salcette taluk), which is located in South Goa district.
Carmona Beach, as well as the neighboring Fatrade Beach, is usually referred to Varca Beach. However, local citizens of nearby villages insist to call these separate parts by their real names.
Carmona Beach is a very beautiful, magical place, very pure and one of the most pleasant resorts in Goa. It is very similar to its neighbors – two famous comfortable Beaches of Cavelossim and Varca: a wide beach strip covered with fine and smooth sand of a very light color, warm sea waters, high level of security, quiet and calm places for having a relaxing rest.
Tourists can choose which way of rest do they want: they can do sports and various activities or simply relax under the tender sun laying on the beach. Shacks and shops, which you can find plenty of at the beach, offer their clients numerous services and sell amazingly tasty dishes (mostly made of fresh seafood) from International and traditional Goa cuisine for not so much high prices. You can taste here some traditional local dishes like pav bhaji, for example, or try some coconut water, buy a hat or enjoy fantastical relaxing massage with different aromatic oils usage.
The Carmona Village itself is located relatively far from the beach, in the west, very close to Sal River. The main attraction of this region is Catholic Church which is visited by dozens of people on Sundays.
You can easily reach Carmona/Zalor Beach resort without any problems by walking from the neighboring beaches and villages. If you are coming here from afar then you should orient to Varca Village or Cavelossim beach resort.
