Miramar beach, a lovely golden beach surrounded by palm trees is one of the most popular beaches in Goa
. It is located about 3 km from Panaji
. Originally it was known as the 'Gasper Dias Beach'. Watching the golden sunset is a major preoccupation for tourists at this beach. It is an urban beach where the Mandovi River
meets the Arabian Sea
. An excellent view of the Aguada fort
across the Mandovi River is available from here. November to March is the ideal time to visit.
