Compared to Morjim and Ashwem, Mandrem beach is the most captivating beach and offers the best option to spend the night. However, during high tide, access to the beach is difficult. So, hoteliers around the area have constructed a makeshift bamboo bridge to reach the beach.How to get there
32km away from Panaji, you can take a taxi or a bus. From Mapusa, you can take the hourly bus service. You can also take a taxi from the Pernem Railway Station, which is 20km away.Accommodation
Many locals let out rooms in their homes to tourists. Beach resorts and tents are also good options.What to experience
You can ask local fishermen to take you for a trip up the creek. You can also take a walk down to Mandrem village or to Suhas Parsekar's organic farm. Other options available are yoga and massages.
You can also go for dolphin-spotting trips. Many hotels and holiday resorts hire out motorcycles and cars and also arrange trips for dolphin spotting.Safety information
The beach is safe for swimming but because of the absence of lifeguards, it would be better not to swim in deep waters.
It is essential for tourists to be cautious and keep a safe distance from the mouth of the creek, which is rather deep, that separates Mandrem beach and Ashwem beach.Eating Out
The ambience is just correct at the beach and so is the food. The tandoori food and seafood are definitely worth a try.
