As you go towards the extreme north of Goa, you reach Arambol, one of Goa’s prime beaches! Although the main beach has become commercial now, if you take a walk ahead to the curve on the right where you see a bunch of secluded rocks by the sea, you can get to the perfect spot for a sunset. Sit on one of the rocks (at a safe distance from the gushing waves of course) and enjoy a great sunset with no obstacles in your line of sight!

5. Chronicle in Vagator

Right by the beach, you will see this beautiful resto-bar called Chronicle which has tables and a bar overlooking the beach with a clear view of the setting sun. The breeze, the booze and the sunset together make Chronicle one of the finest sunset points in Goa!
