Highlights of Goa – Benaulim beach

Each beach in Goa has its own character; the two I went to were very different, but neither one was picture postcard perfect (supposedly Agonda beach in south Goa comes closest, while still being quiet).

Highlights (or rather points of interest) of my 2 nights in Benaulim beach (technically I might have been in Serabatim beach, which is in between Benaulim and Colva beaches):

  • Conveniently close (6km) to Margao (Madgaon) where the train station is (recall that i was sick in the train while getting to Goa…)
  • Quiet beach
  • Few hawkers/touts
  • Mostly an older crowd
  • You could walk northwards to busier Colva beach (lots of watersports – parasailing was only Rs500/$12.50 with some haggling!!), which is popular with Indian families

Photos: my hotel and resto Coco Huts; barefoot on a shaded beach lounge chair (free); view north from my hotel resto; little crab that digs itself into the sand at edge of surf (even on my hand, it would dig into the little pile of sand and tickle my hand); fishing boat and family on the beach
