About Rio de Talpona

Rio de Talpona is a friendly family-run guesthouse located in Talpona, Goa - India. Talpona - Galgibaga (meaning: turtle) area is in the southern most part of Goa that encompasses Talpona and Galgibaga beach. A truly quiet, serene and peaceful place to get away from it all. One can expect almost empty beaches lined with casuarinas trees that give this area a unique character, providing shade and a tranquil atmosphere. Unlike the more crowded and touristic beaches nearby, Galigibaga is a truly protected turtle nesting ground where no large tourist developments are allowed and for that reason it remains quiet and serene with a limited amount of visitors throughout the year.

Our guesthouse is uniquely situated on the bank of the Talpona river just as it merges with the Arabian sea. You can enjoy stunning views of the river, mangrove trees, fishermen, as well as birdwatching while relaxing in our large palm tree garden or simply from your private veranda or guest room. We offer a variety of 9 rooms with prices starting at $9 up to $30. We offer single, double and king size rooms as well as an apartment and two independent cottages. All rooms have an attached bathroom and a private Portuguese style veranda. In addition, we can also arrange beach accommodations. Complementary WiFi is included, so you can stay connected while away from home.

There are two restaurants just walking distance away (5 min. walk) with additional restaurants located along the beach.

For those who are looking to do some souvenir shopping or want to enjoy some international cuisines while staying in this quiet and tranquil area can visit Patnem and Palolem beaches which are just a quick motorbike or taxi ride away. Motorbikes can be rented nearby.
