out. It's a perfect long board wave, but a mini-mal for fish
would also give a lot of fun. It's a tropical environment, the
sea is warm,
accommodation is in beach
huts on the beach and of course there is cheap and
tasty Indian food.Wave: 3 feet at best, 2 feet is more common.
Breaking waves appear about 3 times a week. The rides are short.

tide. Patnem has the most consistent wave, but sometimes it's
better at Palolem.
