Arossim welcome board on the parking place.
If you are looking for a peaceful place, Arossim beach is a good choice. Only one beach shack here, and plenty of empty space around it.
Better than words, these photos speak for themselves.
The access to the beach through a tiny bridge over a small stream…
… that runs for a while along the beach.
Next is another view of Arossim beach: the store houses on the beach and the coconut grove.
The local traditional life is still active here, and coexists with tourism, as well as the wild life.

The Heritage Village Club Hotel.
Less than a kilometer before the beach, stands the Heritage Village club and its numerous bangalows. The people you can meet on the beach are mainly their customers.
But there are before that on the road different guest-houses, in typical modern goan houses, but also in an old and huge indo-portuguese house.
You also have on the way to the beach some few other restaurants.
like the Mango terrace restaurant next to the Heritage Village Club, and also a health center, the Ayura.
HOW TO GET TO AROSSIM BEACH?
Arossim beach is just between Velsao beach and Utorda beach, on this beautiful 26 km beach of South Goa.
It is about 20 km from the airport and a few kilometers from Margao, the main city of South Goa.
Roughly a road goes along the coast in a parallel line.
If you come from the north, about 2 km after Cansaulim, there’s on your right a small purple chapel, and the next turn on your right is the road leading to Arossim beach. A board is there, indicating the Heritage Village Club.
If you come from the south, after Utorda, and the Park Hyatt Hotel, you’ll go through an open space: a water reservoir with water lilies and paddyfields. Then, a kilometer further, on your left, you’ll see the road leading to the Heritage Village Club and Arossim beach. Check the boards! And beware of the speed breakers!
