road trip !
lets head southbound about 1hour 45 mins from anjuna , first stop palolem beach . jason bourne filmed scenes here running along the beach and being chased in his car with the girl . they eventually crashed off nerul bridge . palm fringed paradise although its a bit busier thesedays . this is right in the middle of palolem bay

dropadi restaurant is part of the dunhill agonda / april 21 patnem group . each place is particularly good . and clean .
along the beach these are some of the many temporary shacks and huts along the bay that set up in november and dismantle completely in may [approx] .
CAFE DEL MAR
such hard work [!] , so it was drinks in round cube where we watched a ‘murder of crows’ [true saying] demolish a whole bag of grapes while the girls turned her back . nice work guys ;-)
before carrying on along the beach
RESORT DE PALOLEM
THE PLACE SEA VIEW
YOU CAN DO STAND UP PADDLE FROM HERE
CAFE DEL SOL
right at the very southern end of palolem you have “silent noise” party , the saturday night weekly all night headphones party . its an excellent club night with 3 djs playing house/classics/r+b~funk~disco on 3 seperate channels . ive got pics from a previous visit on my blog if you use search box ‘silent disco’ . that and the amazing leopard valley are the 2 main party nights in south goa .
after this went for sunset strawberry daquiri’s on patnem beach 5 mins moped ride from palolem beach . wanted to try tantras this time . was nice fresh fruit but too heavy on the lime and too light on the rum to be ‘the’ daq champion . still enjoyable however .
and hung out on patnem for the rest of the day till sunset
for our evening meal we where gagging to revisit a personal favourite of ours , ourem ’88 in palolem . superb quality food every time , advance booking is essential they dont have many tables and turn away 3 times the amount of people every evening . the couple from england who run it are great hosts too . bloody lovely ! search ourem in the box on this page for more entries for here . the music is always on point here too , a random selection of coolness ie disco , 70’s , synth pop , 90s , the jam might be played back to back with a motown track then into blondie folowed by andy weatherall then james brown , anything goes but always an enjoyable eclectic selection . bravo !
these are the specials and part of menu
the fresh homecooked food NOM NOM
a waiter lol
and a very reasonable bill
if you are down south you really should pay a visit to ourem ’88 , definitely one of our favourites in all of goa .
