Photographer's Note

Cabo de Rama, also known as Cab de Ram by the locals is a beautiful beach located in south Goa. The beach is located at a distance of 28 kms. from Margao. The waters here have a pristine greenish blue hue. To the north of the beach lies a small river that is shallow enough for one to wade across. Groves of palm trees line up the shoreline a short distance from the waves. The palm trees offers good shade to picnickers. Consequently this beach is a favorite for school and family picnics.

The beach is fairly secluded owning to its distance from major towns and cities and is not particularly crowded. Behind the beach is a steep cliff having rocky flat top. A set of crude steps lead down to the beach. On the left side of the beach a little into the sea is a boulder with a single tree atop it. This boulder can be reached sometimes when the tide is particularly low. There are no shacks or restaurants at this beach.

Overlooking the beach to it's south is the Portuguese Cabo de Rama Fort. From the fort, one can see the Cabo de Rama beach and the Arabian sea. The view from the ramparts of the fort is truly breathtaking! There are no buses travelling to this beach. The beach can only be reached by private transport.
