If you want to stay in beach huts, South Goa is the place to be. The southern beaches are more developed than those in the north, and you will enjoy more facilities and accommodation that is better suited to kicking back and enjoying this magical part of India.
There is a lot of variety. If you want to travel on a shoestring budget, you can find a cheap beach hut in south Goa. They won’t be luxurious. We are talking about the bare minimums required for survival; a bed and running water.
But you are on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, a stone throw away from cities that are overflowing with culture. If you want to pay a little more, these beach huts are willing to accommodate, and they will respond with absolute luxury.
You are paying for a bigger, nicer structure, gorgeously crafted out of wood, complete with thatched roofs, and some of the wants join the needs. Such as, running water, kitchen equipment, balconies that you can sit on and watch the waves roll in. It is downright amazing what has been done with these huts.

The Beaches in South Goa with Beach Huts
The Agonda, Palolem, and Patnem beaches are probably where you want to begin your search. They are all quite developed and well set up for tourism.
Agonda Beach is in front of the large Agonda village. It is one of only four beaches that are listed as a designated turtle nesting spot. So, if you want to see turtles nesting, this is not a bad place for it.
There is a little bit of surf but nothing massive and lifeguards are stationed there. A welcome assurance for the average swimmers among us. The beach itself is beautiful. It faces towards the setting sun, and you have no choice but to watch it from your beach hut, as it paints the sky vibrant orange and tints the clouds red before the ocean extinguishes it.
The beach is getting a little bit more crowded, but I would still consider it a quiet beach. All in all, it is a great choice and one of my favorite places on Earth.
Palolem Beach is probably the most commercial beach in South Goa. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The kind of thing that you might see on a postcard and unsurprisingly it is on the back of many post cards.
To enjoy Palolem Beach it is all about when you go. If you go in the high of the season, it will be too busy to enjoy. If you go before the season it is littered with rubbish. The right way to enjoy this pristine bit of coastline is to arrive just before the season. It is not busy but all of the preparations are being made for the swarms that are about to arrive.
It is really interesting watching the beach transform as the huts are erect and the rubbish cleared away. The shops take on extra staff and the whole area swells in anticipation. When it is in full swing, the beach might be crowded but the parties and nightlife are amazing.
A great time, highly recommended, and having a beach hut among it all can make for the best time of your life.
A smaller beach with a fraction of the people of Palolem Beach, Patnem Beach is a laid-back alternative. It kicks up a decent surf, and it is just as pretty as all the other breath-taking wonders along the coast.
The beach huts are well kept and the people plenty friendly. Who could forget that magnificent sun set that dips into the ocean every night. If all you want from you South Goa beach hut is a relaxed atmosphere and a place to put your feet up, this is the place.
These are just three of the countless beaches in South Goa that has beautiful beach huts nestled on their pristine coastline.
Each area offers something a little different, so be sure to do your research before you book, but you really won’t regret spending some time in this beautiful part of the world
