Beaches in Goa cannot get more scenic than the Betul beach, located south of Mobor beach. This beautiful beach rests right at the delta of Sal River, giving passers-by a gorgeous view of the serene sea. The beach itself has soft silvery sand, fringed by looming fruit trees and swaying palms to provide visitors with some shade as they enjoy this seaside delight. The foothills of the Western Ghats form the backdrop of the beach, offering a 360-degree natural panorama. A small lagoon also exists at this beach. A walk to the Betul lighthouse along the fascinating coastline is sure to inspire a new sense of admiration for this natural beauty.
The village of Betul is small but friendly and very hospitable. It is easy to find directions in this area or friendly locals at the restaurants in the area. One can also see the majestic Betul fort from this location, located on a hill that overlooks the Southern coast. By the beach, one can find many fishing boats and ocean trawlers as Betul is a fishing village. Being a slightly offbeat and more peaceful beach, one will not see beach shacks as is prevalent across Goa. However, the seafood at Betul is quite amazing, with some of Goa's finest and largest mussels being found here.

Rail: The Madgaon Railway Station is about 18 km away from the beach.
Road: There are buses from the morning to the afternoon from Madgaon and Panaji that arrive at the Betul Cross stop, walking distance from the beach.
