Miramar Beach in Panjim town - A beautiful and one of the most visited beaches in Goa

If you have been following the ongoing series of blogposts on Goa, you would know that Miramar beach was the most visited one this time because we were staying at the Goa Marriott Resort and Spa. So it was very convenient to step out early in the morning or in evening to enjoy those splashes of waves covering your feet with thin layer of sand. and as we walked more on Miramar beach we realised that this is a very special beach of Goa because of various reasons.

I am not sure about the exact reason but sunset from Miramar makes me believe that it can be called Golden Beach. The other reason can be unique colour of water at Miramar beach, may be it's because it's a confluence of Mandovi river and Arabian sea.

Supposedly Miramar beach is also considered the longest beach in Goa state and it's spread over 2 kilometers. The grand entry to the Miramar beach is from the circle where Goa Tourism property is located and it's also a bus stop, with small kiosks selling snacks & toys for kids visiting the beach. Just close to the beach, there is a park and a bunch of coconut trees looking over the beach.   Related Blogpost - Interesting rock-dwellers on the beaches of Goa

Above photograph shows a beautiful pattern of sand on the beach. This was created by a small water stream flowing from a backwater source to the beach. The water was constantly flowing through this path. I loved this pattern on the beach and thought of clicking a photograph.

The Miramar beach is also accessible through public transportation available in Panjim. That's best part of Panjim town in Goa, that if you want to take public transportation you can and the availability is pretty decent. As you move away from the town, you would need a reliable transportation of your own - taxi or car/bike on rent.

The beach looks even stunning during sunsets. During monsoons, either the sunsets are pretty dull or full of colours and we saw almost all the variations, which you can see through photographs shared in this blogpost. Miramar beach looks different with hues of sunsets and specially monsoons make sunsets even special.

While around the beach, the common activity we all indulge in is looking at these waves and how pattern changes during the day. And if you spend enough time just observing these waves at peace, it's a meditative experience.   Related Blogpost - Cruise on the Mandovi river - One of the popular tourist activity in Goa
