An Ocean Trek is a walk along a mountain overlooking the sea. As you walk, the majesty of the magnificent Arabian Sea is a near-constant presence. The sylvan sound of the waves crashing on the shore soothes your soul and makes your spirits soar.
We start from Porvorim in Goa at 07:00hrs, and drive to Paliem, a village between Arambol and Keri. We set off along a hilly path which takes you to the deserted and grassy Paliem plateau. After crossing the plateau, you then plunge through a dense evergreen natural forest as you follow a perennial stream down to the northern Arambol Beach, famous for its fresh water lake just a few metres from the sea (see photo above). Here, you can relax, take a dip in the sea, then wash off the salt in the sweet water lake. Or even smear yourself with medicinal mud from the banks of the stream on the hillside and then bathe in one of the many pools along the stream. We then walk across a hillside along the sea, past spectacular seascape scenery, to reach Goa’s northernmost and least commercialised beach, Keri, and then on to our pick-up point. We start back for Goa around 14.00hrs, reaching Porvorim by 15:00hrs.
