Benaulim Beach

Benaulim offers a pleasant contrast to the busy life in north Goa. The beach lies right at the heart of Colva Beach, just 7 kms west of Margao and 40 kms from Panaji. Most of the day you can enjoy a time of solitude and peace at Benaulim as it doesn’t get crowded except in the weekends and in the evening.

Benaulim also has an important place in the history of Goa. Legend says that the state of Goa was created when Lord Vishnu's sixth incarnation, Shri Parasurama, shot an arrow from the top of the Western Ghats ordering the surrounding waters to recede.

Visit the beach either for a reflective time of solitude or water sports. Here you can indulge your senses by taking in the endless blue expanse of the water while sun bathing at the sandy beach. If not, get you adrenaline pumping with some extreme water sports or spot a dolphin while you take a spin.

How To Get There: The beach is well connected by road and there are buses every 30 minutes from Margao, Colva, Varca, Cavelossim and Mobor. From Dabolim airport, you can hire a taxi and drive down the 70 kms stretch of road that will take you to the beach.

Where To Stay: There is no dearth of accommodation in Benaulim. Small budget guesthouses, resorts and budget hotels are scattered at the back of the beach. For those who want comfort, there are top-end hotels like the Taj Exotica, Carina Beach Resort, Jupiter Resort & Spa, Hotel Failaka, Royal Goan Beach Club and Lotus Suites.

What To Do: Hire a boat and spot some friendly dolphins or discover the adventurer in you by trying some water sports. After you’ve tired yourself with these sports, head for a spa at the resorts or beach shacks, or just lie down in the sand for a tan or take a dip in the calm water. Otherwise, you can try your luck at angling; Benailim is a popular place for fishing.

Like many other beaches in Goa, Benaulim too has few interesting historic buildings to see like the Holy Trinity Church and the Church of St. John the Baptist. Though nightlife is next to none, there are several fairs and festivals that will interest you, the most famous being the Beach Bonanza held every Sunday.

As for the food, the fishermen community serves excellent seafood but the prices are quite competitive. The small beach shacks offer better priced food coupled with excellent views of the ocean. The terrace restaurants found all over the beach are another popular eating joint among tourists.
