The Colva Beach lies around 6 Kms toward the west of Margao and is the most established, biggest and the most fantastic shorelines of South Goa. The shoreline comprises of around 25kms of the fine powdered white sand and is limited along its coast by coconut palms that stretch from Bogmalo in the north to Cabo de Rama in the south along south Goa's coastline. In the pilgrim days it used to be the resting zone for Margao's high society, who might visit Colva for their "Mundanca" or change of air. Today the region that is reminiscent of the rich way of life of the aristrocratic class has the lovely houses or manors that dab the town. While taking a walk around the Colva Beach, silver floor coverings of bangdde (mackerels) can be seen shimmering on the brilliant sands that are laid for drying by the anglers.
