Stretch of Arambol beach towards Mandrem

Goa : The stretch of Arambol beach towards Mandrem, which converts into a backpackers den in season, usually comes alive in the evenings with the drum circle, flea market and sunset jams. People from different parts of the world who live in Arambol or spend the tourist season there get together to do yoga, hoop, sing, play the drum and dance. Some even set up their stalls at the beach flea to sell their wares.This year, however, due to the pandemic, the vibe is quite different. While there are no new travellers coming in, the ones who spent the entire summer here due to the pandemic, have been meeting up for some low-key sunset jams.

Vajra Aigal, a hooper who’s regular at these jams tells us, “There are no new people, and new energy coming in. But the people who are here, have decided to stay back since it’s economically viable. Small groups of people have been getting together for jams, but the drum circle and the market are not happening yet. We get together for hula hoop jams, and just hang out on the beach the way we would before. Crowds are less due to the pandemic, but I meet a lot of domestic tourists who are visiting, have moved here or are planning to move here and work from home from Goa.
