Ranwaddo beach is one of the 2 beach spots of Betalbatim. It is also called Lover’s beach, as you can see on the picture below. We took the pictures at sunset, and they beautifully convey the romantic atmosphere of the place.

Ranwaddo is a beach of Central South Goa, located on this beautiful 26 km (16 miles) beach that you can see on the map below. Actually, Ranwaddo beach is the name of this portion of this huge beach and of its access. To have an overview of all the beaches of Goa, you can go to: Beaches in Goa India.

A small car parking place, but that’s ok, Lover’s beach is not a crowded place.

A second access pathway to the beach

Different sandy pathways lead to the beach through a nice coconut grove, with some bushes where lovers can hide themselves…
The land behind the beach is a mix of pine and coconut trees, spread over sandy dunes: a very beautiful spot.

As you can see on the pictures above and below, the government, to prevent the erosion of the beach, has put huge nets to protect the beach. Will tell you after the next monsoon if it has been efficient!
Update: It’s ok, it’s holding on!
