Privacy is the name of the game here. Mandrem Beach, off Mapusa in Goa is a North Goa beach which offers the perfect setting for couples and honeymooners. The beach is secluded and has very few shacks and joints offering the perfect setting for an afternoon alone with a book or your better half.
Casuarina trees flank the beach and one can catch a glimpse of the white bellied fish eagle here. Other attractions in the locality include a very well preserved Portuguese fort.
The best way to get to Mandrem is on a hired two-wheeler or your own car although you just might manage to convince a cabbie to get you here, fares being an issue. Come night, and Madrem turns into an ideal place to just lie on the beach and stargaze.
