Carmona Beach Goa

The Carmona beach is situated in the Salcete district of South Goa. It is a beautiful beach that is very clean and is one of the most magnificient Beaches in Goa. Carmona village is located along the road in parallel to the 26 km beach of South Goa. Only the road signs will tell you that you are in Carmona. The villages follow one another 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 them. If you come from the north, you'll see the sign above on your right indicating the beach. If you come from Cavelossim-Mobor, the road will be of course on your left. Then, it's simple, you just go straight for about 2 km, and you reach the place below.Carmona Beach is the name of a small part of South Goa sea coastline washed by warm waters of Arabian Sea. The resort has got its name from the name of the nearby village. The place is also known as Zalor Beach. The neighboring beaches are Fatrade and Varca Beaches in the north and Cavelossim Beach resort in the south. All of these great, fantastical resorts belong to Salcette municipal region (Salcette taluk), which is located in South Goa district.


Carmona Zalor beach is really one of the most beautiful and peaceful spot amongst the beaches in Goa, being in the same time not in an isolated place. Margao, the main south town is only a few kilometers away. When you are on this part of this wonderful 26 km (16 miles) beach of South Goa, there's no beach road access before Mobor Cavelossim, almost 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) south.x

Where To Stay

y-star There's a bar restaurant open all year round on the left of the parking place.
    Many buildings have raised since a few years ago in Carmona, and not of the best taste, unfortunately. But in spite of that it is still a very peaceful place. These buildings are for the most part, empty for the moment.
There's a complex that exists for quite a long time: it's J.M.C, the Jose Menino Colonia, a group of first floor houses belonging to private owners or to rent, 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. Very useful during monsoon, when the sea is too rough to swim.
