Agonda is a great spot for sunbathing, relaxing and swimming, with relatively few tourists. Though the waters here might not be the most ideal place for swimming, Agonda is definitely a place for those who want to quit on a Monday morning. Most mobile connections do not work here (of those having SIM cards easily available to foreigners, only Vodafone does), so that is an added bonus for those looking forward to a quiet and relaxed holiday. Or, if you do need to party sometimes, Palolem is just 15 minutes by motorbike (10 km) away – but Agonda is generally cheaper, quieter, and hassle-free. Agonda beach is famous as a Ridley turtle nesting site which are nearly endangered. Please keep the noise level and the lights down at night at the beach to give them a chance to nest. Agonda beach is the ultimate in laid-back Goa beach holiday destinations.
