    We live in a peaceful coastal village. In spare time one can visit the beaches. Mandrem beach is around 1km from the farm. Morjim beach know for olive ridley turtle is around 6 km and Arambol beach which was a hippie beach in 70s also know for sweet water lake is 5 kms away. All the places are accessible by local transport. Goa has bike takis and it's more convenient to hire a two wheeler to travel around.
