Benaulim Beach, Goa Overview

Just 2 km away from the tourist hub Colva of South Goa lies the serene Benaulim beach. With its long stretch of empty sands dotted with inviting beach chairs, this scenic beach is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation away from the crowded beaches of North Goa. It is popular for its water sports activities and dolphin spotting tours.

Benaulim Beach is well-known for fishing, so there are a number of makeshift beach shacks here serving delicious seafood. This beach remains peaceful and calm even in the tourist season as very few people tend to wander here. The party scene isn't the thriving all-night scene like the party beaches of North Goa. However, lively music plays at the many shacks and restaurants of Benaulim beach.
