There are many things to do if you’ve had enough of lying in the sun. To the north end of the beach there is Monkey Island to explore and a river you can take a boat trip along or hire a kayak and meander up it yourself. The closest beaches to Palolem are Butterfly Beach and Honeymoon Beach which can only be reached by sea,
a perfect reason to rent a Sea Kayak. You are likely to see different species of birds and monkeys around there.
If you head out early enough in the morning you might get to see Dolphins.
