Galgibaga Beach or as it is also called Galgibagh Beach is located in the south of Goa in the Canacona region (Canacona Taluk), 7 km from the famous Palolem Beach resort. Many people consider the whole Arabian Sea coastline from Talpona River mouth up to the Galgibaga River mouth to be the entire coast. Probably due to this wrong way of thinking there are some discrepancies in how to call the Beach properly.
Galgibaga Beach is also known as the Turtle Beach and is one of three other Goa beaches (alongside with Agonda beach and Morjim beach) where the state program of olive turtles saving and protection works and implemented perfectly. The whole northern part of this beautiful beach is used for turtles nesting.
As with most other beaches in Goa, the best time to visit is in the winter months from October to March, when the weather is pleasant and the seas are not so rough. In the summer, despite the heat, the beaches are still a great place to be. During the monsoon month, the beaches are less frequented because the seas are rough with dangerous undercurrents and inclement weather.
