The nearly mile long Galgibaga Beach in South Goa’s Canacona extends out into the confluence of the Arabian Sea and the River Galgibaga. It is one of the southernmost of Goa’s many beaches. One of the last nesting grounds of the endangered olive ridley turtle in India, the beach is a protected area and is generally closed to the public. The best time to visit the Galgibaga Beach is between November and March to witness the olive ridley hatchlings emerge from the nests and head out into the sea.
Not far from the Galgibaga Beach are the more well known beaches of Palolem and Talpona, which are separated by a hilly area ideal for some light trekking.
This area is still underdeveloped as far as tourist facilities and transportation are concerned. It is better to be self sufficient if planning a visit here as the village of Galgibaga is predominantly a fishing community.
