It's not quite paradise but I like it

Today is Saturday.

For the last two days we have been enjoying the sun, sea, sand fish and port (yes, port!) at Mandrem beach.

Deciding on which beach to get to was pretty tough. We didn't want to hit a crazy busy beach with lots of life and activity - we've been in India for 5 weeks so busy is the last thing we want. Everywhere we went we met people telling us different places to go. Arghhhhh!

It was a real last minute blind decision, but we eventually found ourselves on the bus to Mandrem.

We rocked up and found ourselves a cheap shack on the beach.

Within a few minutes we were on the beach.

The beach is nice. Fairly clean. Golden.

The sea is clean. Warm. But not crystal clear.

This beach isn't the most beautiful I have ever seen in the world. It's ok.

We went to Anjuna beach for a day trip on Wednesday and Mandrem beach is much nicer than the beach there.

So yeah in the scale of beaches i'd give it a 6/10.

I guess I just expected more having seen beautiful pictures of beautiful Goan sands.

We haven't really done much since arriving at the beach. Just reading, swimming and sun bathing. But after 5 weeks of chaotic India it was greatly needed!
