About the Location: 8-Day Yoga Retreat at Polem Beach, Goa
Nestled in the pristine landscapes of South India, Polem Beach emerges as the southernmost jewel in the crown of Goa. Here, where the Goan coastline meets the shores of Karnataka, you’ll find a secluded paradise untouched by the hustle and bustle of tourists. It’s a haven for those yearning for solitude and self-discovery.
As you walk along this mesmerizing 700-meter stretch of pristine sand, the vast expanse of the ocean unfolds before you, sparkling in shades of blue. The only faces you’ll encounter are the fellow retreaters and the local fishermen, adding an air of exclusivity to your experience.
Polem Beach boasts towering rocky cliffs that enhance its natural allure. It’s a place for swimming and sunbathing, with a unique feature – you can spot dolphins gracefully leaping in the waves and white-bellied fish eagles soaring above, right from the beach.
Unlike many secluded Goan beaches, here you’ll find a few charming shacks offering beachside relaxation and snacks. Beyond the beach, there are waterfalls, temples, and islands waiting to be explored, making this location a true treasure trove of experiences.
