Google Map Links
The main track starts at Cajumol (at Cola Village, near Agonda) on Google Maps:
The track starts behind the State Bank of India ATM / Panchayat Office at Cola Village - see photo below.
Once you reach Cajumol at Cola Village, you can either park there and get a track taxi, OR, this is the next map link to follow if you want to drive down the track to the beach:
Using both links will ensure you reach the correct track.
If you are coming by two-wheeler or hiking, please also read about the shortcut track.
Free parking is available in two places.
- Parking at Cola Village (at the start of the track)
You can park at the main road in Cola Village by the Cola Village Panchayat Office / State Bank of India. There is a large parking space here, at the entrance to the track. If you want to park here, you will need to pre-book our Track Taxi to meet you there and take you down the track to the resort (see below).
- Parking at Cola Beach (at the resort, at the end of the track)
If you drive down the track between Cola Village and Cola Beach, you will reach the second carpark at the end of the track above the beach. Walk down some steps and you are in the resort.
- If you are hiking, or coming on scooter/bike, you could alternatively use the shortcut track.
If you want to make your own way to Cola Village, we can send a track taxi to meet you there (300 to 600 Rs depending on number of guests and time of day). We need at least 30 minutes to coordinate it for you - please tell us in advance. Track taxis are normally only available between 8am morning and 10pm evening. If you will need one outside these hours, please talk to us at least a day in advance.
Outside taxis are unlikely to take you down the track. They will leave you at Cola Village and you will need to book a track taxi with us to come down the track. Some outside taxis may offer to bring you by the shortcut track, this leaves you some distance from Blue Lagoon and you have to hike down a hill onto Cola Beach from there - the shortcut is only suitable if you are bags are light and easy to carry and you don't mind walking the last part of the way.
The Main Track
- Starts behind the Panchayat Office / State Bank of India at Cola Village
- Distance is about 2.4 km / 1.5 miles
- It is a bumpy offroad dirt track, which is narrow and winding in places.
- Many cars, taxis and two-wheelers use this track everyday. Whether you want to drive on it depends on your confidence and your car. If you do not want to drive down the track please book a track taxi with us so it can meet you at Cola Village.
- It can be hard to find the turn for the track in the dark. The track is not lit at night. If you are arriving at night tell us in advance so we can help you get here.
There is a small sign for "Cola Beach" on a lampost where the track starts. The track is shown on the maps below. There is a car park at the end, above Blue Lagoon Resort. Steps lead down into the resort from there.
From the north - from Margao / airport:
Take the coastal road south via Chinchinim, Betul and Cabo de Rama. Shortly after Cabo de Rama you will reach Cola Village. Landmarks: look for the Panchayat Office (local government office) and State Bank of India (SBI) on your right. Immediately past SBI, turn right onto the red, unsurfaced track that goes behind the buildings.
From the south - from Chaudi / Agonda / Palolem:
Take the road from Palolem to Agonda. Do not turn into Agonda - stay on the main road. After Agonda, DO NOT take the first track on the left... this is the wrong track, although your GPS might tell you to take it. Stay on the main road and keep driving north. You will reach Cola Village about 15-20 minutes / 10km after Agonda. Landmarks: look for the Panchayat Office (local government office) and State Bank of India on your left. There is a small sign on a post saying "Cola Beach". This is where the correct track to Blue Lagoon is. Turn left here, onto the red, unsurfaced track.
