Margao • South Goa
Zalor beach is a small beach that lies just south of Varca beach. Just like Varca beach, this beach too has clean white sands.
Zalor beach lies at a distance of 14 km. from Margao city. The beach is mostly deserted with just a couple of shacks on the beach. A few low sand dunes and a few palm trees can also be seen along the shoreline. This part of Zalor beach is mainly catholic. So one can see churches, chapels, and crosses a bit everywhere. Like many other beaches in Goa, Zalor Beach is also an important fishing zone. If you make it to the beach during early dawn or late dusk, you can easily catch the fishermen in action. Don’t forget your camera, you might get lucky with some great shots!
There is a parking spot for your private vehicles at the beach entrance. A bar-cum-restaurant is situated on the left of the parking space and remains open all year round. Over the years a number of buildings have sprouted up on this beach which is an eyesore, but for the most part, they remain empty. Hence, Zalor still remains quiet and undisturbed.
