Polem beach is the southernmost beach of Goa. It is a very secluded with large stretches of white sands. The beach has just a couple of shacks, but hardly any tourists. A small road from the National highway leads to the beach. Polem beach is located at a distance of about 50 kms. from the city of Margao.
The beach in fact has more tourists from the town of Karwar in Karnataka than it has from Goa. From the beach one can see the island of Anjdiv in the distance protruding out from the sea a few kilometers off the beach. The island is the location of the future Naval base of India on the West Coast. The modernization and building of this base is in progress currently. When ready, INS Vikramaditya and its carrier fleet will be based at this naval base. One can reach the beach by bus from Karwar and Canacona.
