Ashwem beach is in North Goa, between Morjim and the Mandrem beach. It is a part of a long stretch of sandy shore that starts from the banks of the Chapora River, in the south, and extends all the way to Ashwem. Also referred to as Ashvem, it is 31 kilometers from Panaji via the NH 66 and is 54.7 kilometers from Vasco da Gama. The Dabolim international airport is 54.6 kilometers away.
This is one of the cleanest and most well-maintained beaches in Goa. Less crowded, which is rare in the north, as many beaches here attract a lot of tourists in the peak season. Thanks to the fewer tourists, both the water and the beach are cleaner. You will have more quiet and peace. More privacy! In fact, there are long stretches where you won’t find any beach shacks, restaurants, or sun beds. The waves are gentle, so you can swim without worry. Swaying palm trees line this 1.5-kilometer beach – the touch of greenery making the landscape look prettier.
The best time to visit Ashwem beach is between November and February. The weather will be much nicer this time of the year. The beach shacks will be all open. Ashwem sees fewer tourists, but during the summer and monsoon months, the beach will be almost completely secluded, so the shacks, and even many of the cafes, bars, and restaurants, will be closed down.
