Situated adjacent to the Mandovi estuary of the Nerul River, Coco Beach is the beach where visitors who have come to Goa along with their families can enjoy some much needed peace and quiet away from the throngs of tourists which are found almost throughout the entire state of Goa. There are a number of local families who often visit this beach for picnics on weekends. Since the beach is located next to a very active fishing village, tourists can expect to indulge in a lot of water sporting activities here. Tourists can visit any of the shacks (or sea - facing restaurants) on the beach, not only to taste some great food and drinks, but also to enquire about boating trips which they can readily arrange. There are also boating trips which can take tourists out into the Arabian Sea, wherein they can even spot dolphins playing with great ease.
