Down to the south from Arambol beach is the stretch of three beaches in Pernem taluka. Immediately down, south to Arambol is Ashwem. Unlike other Goa beaches in the south this beach is quiet and an ideal place to relax. The wind-touch, white sandy stretch adds to the beach's charm. The beautiful beach, without the bane of commercialization, is a haven for tourists. Brisk walk, long swims and lazing around are very much in order.
Ashvem Beach is a hidden gem with stunning scenery and range of nice beach hotels and resorts. Most people come to this beach during the day for sunbathing and swimming, but there are some great options for dinner and accommodation too. Walk a little inland, through the forest, to see some authentic Goan villages and temples. Stroll along 1.5 kilometres (1 mile) of fine sand and listen to the soothing sounds of the lapping waves and the rustle of the palm leaves. Play in the waves and let the Arabian Sea’s warm waters relax your body.
Stay overnight at one of the low-cost huts or check out the upscale beach resorts in the quieter area of the beach. This section is known as Palm Grove, due to its collection of trees. The accommodation is mostly in the form of comfortable beach huts, as environmental protection laws prevent the building of new brick structures.
Despite all the resorts and restaurants, the beach remains remarkably empty and undisturbed. There is a noise curfew in the evenings, so the sound of the waves rules the area. For a break from sunbathing, venture to the charming Goan villages nearby. The villages are surrounded by coconut groves, forests and fields. Take the short rickshaw journey to Arambol Beach at night to take part in festivities at bars and clubs.
Buy lunch from a vendor in one of the many huts hidden between the trees. There are a few notable international restaurants along the beach, which offer anything from French cuisine to typical Indian curries. If you are on a budget, haggle with the many hawkers on the beach for cheaper food or drinks.
