I remember the numerous visits I made to Goa post my teens, spent a couple of days on the ever so crowded beaches of Calangute and Baga and went back home content with a tan. This blog explores the unexplored, the vast expanses of beaches where weekend tourists forget to horde.
Pernem is a district in North Goa. The most popular beaches in Pernem are Morjim, Ashwem, Mandrem and Arambol. Though Arambol has gained immense popularity in the recent years, Ashwem still remains a quiet haven where the lucky few sip on their mojitos and get a golden brown tan.
