Zalor beach In Goa
Zalor beach is really one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots amongst the beaches in Goa, being at the same time not in an isolated place. Margao which is the main south town in Goa is located only a few kilometers away. When you are on this part of this wonderful 26 km beach of South Goa, there’s no access for beach road before Mobor Cavelossim, almost 4 kilometers south. Carmona Beach is the name of a small part of the South Goa sea coastline washed by warm waters of the Arabian Sea. This beach has got its name from the name of the nearby village. The place is also known as Carmona Zalor Beach. The beaches near Zalor Beach are Fatrade Beach and Varca Beach in the north and Cavelossim Beach resort in the south.
There’s a bar-restaurant open all year round on the parking place. Many buildings have raised since a few years ago in Carmona. But it is still a very peaceful place. There’s a complex that exists for quite a long time: it’s C.M.J, the Colonia Jose Menino, a group of first floor houses belonging to private owners or to rent, with a hotel inside, just a minute away from the beach. They have a medium size swimming pool, open all year round, where anybody can come for a small fee.
How to Reach Carmona Beach
Carmona village is a beautiful place situated along the road in parallel to the 26 km beach of South Goa. The villages follow each other along this long beach, and unless you pay attention to the road signs, it’s not easy to know in which village you are. So, pay attention to the signs while traveling. If you are reaching here from the north side, you’ll see the sign above on your right indicating the beach. If you come from the road of Cavelossim-Mobor, then it will be of course on your left.
