Goa truly is a beach lover's paradise, blessed by endless stretches of gorgeous coastline dotted with some of the world's most inviting beaches. Booking a beach holiday to Goa will give you the opportunity to experience some of these exquisite sandy stretches, and through our fantastic accommodation collections, you can even opt to stay beside one of the state's most alluring beaches.

We present a number of beach hotels in Goa, ranging from mesmerising and luxurious resorts, to great value, mid-range options just steps from the sand. To protect the beauty of the state's beaches, hotels are no longer allowed to be built right on the beach, but the majority of our beachfront properties are less than a minute's walk from the sand, while their grounds are also designed to feel like an extension of the coastline's natural beauty.

To give you a flavour of what to expect from a stay in one of these properties, we've compiled a list of our top 5 beach hotels in Goa - see if you can pick a favourite!
