The Mandrem Beach is in Noth Goa – to the south of Arambol Beach resort and to the north of Ashvem beach, sharing the same one continuous stretch of sand in this peaceful, quite and serene place. This is a beautiful deserted beach and an isolated place with the vast stretches of white sand – the best place to spend comfortable holidays.
Similar to its neighbors, the Mandrem beach has not too much developed tourist infrastructure. For this reason this place is more popular among budget tourists and people who prefer to have camp wild than to spend their vacations in some crowded places within luxury accommodation.
Being a quiet beach, one can even see the white-bellied fish eagles that live here in the casuarina trees. Sometimes you can even see the famous Olive Ridley marine turtles that are nesting at Mandrem beach from time to time.
The best time to visit the Mandrem beach resort is in the winter, which lasts from October till March. During this period of the year the humid tropical climate ofNorth Goa gives way to the sun and warmth, so that tourists can enjoy the amazing warm and clear weather.

The Mandrem coastline is about2 km long; northwardly it blends into the Arambol beach, and is plugged up by a small local river in the south. This shallow river strongly wags on the sand, and it seems that the beach is divided into many small islands. The river is arched over by little bridges which gives the local scenery some unique beautiful touch. In some places however, the river must be waded.
The beach is sparsely populated, which makes this resort the best place for quiet and lazy holidays spent with a low level of services, swimming in the shallow waters of theArabian Sea, long walks and bike rides. The resort is very popular for yoga and for weddings.
