This beach is all about simplicity, and it's surrounded by a one-of-a-kind freshwater lake. Because of local policy, the Arambol Beach region does not have many hotels and restaurants, but there are several shacks where one may enjoy the beautiful beach, clean air, and clear water. Arambol Beach is close to Anjuna Beach and Mapusa Beach, both of which are only a short drive away. The Money Stone is a remarkable sculpture that has recently gained popularity among tourists.
