Highlights

Benaulim Beach is only a short distance south of Colva Beach, but there's a huge contrast between the two. Known for its fishing industry, it's a beautiful and laid back stretch of beach. You won't find any wild parties there, but water sports and dolphin sightseeing trips are on offer. It does get a little crowded around peak time in December, but head a bit further south down the beach and the quietness will be restored.

Other Details

Just like the other beaches of Goa, Benaulim Beach also has a string of snack joints, serving delicious food. The village of Benaulim is as popular as the beach is. Its rosewood furniture and exquisite carvings are renowned throughout the country. There are a number of tourist spots near the beach. One of them is the 'Church of St John the Baptist', which lies on a hill just beyond the village. The major attractions of the church include its exquisite architecture, based on the type Goan Christian style, and the Feast of St John the Baptist (Sao Joao).
