Candolim Beach

" The lonely seashore at Candolim Beach invites all, who yearn for solitude and tranquility. Here, I could feel thoroughly relaxed and completely in control. The warm breeze caressed me with its salty tang everywhere at Candolim Beach. The silver hued sand caressed my feet when I took a stroll on the secluded beach. The feeling was amazingly refreshing and divine. The extraordinary sight of soft sand and sapphire waters certainly made Candolim Beach a perfect dream holiday, which I ever had in my life. "

- Mac Abrahim, Finland
