“Goa's best kept secret”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

I have no words to explain what a wonder this beach is. Very close to Colva taking a right from the second Colva beach circle after the bus stand, about two kms, past Serenabatim beach, Benaulim is the ideal place to soak in what is called sun, sand and spirit of Goa. The beach as not yet explored finds few visitors-specially Russian tourists. There are descent shacks. We visited a shack called Hawaii. It is more towards Varca a bit far from the crowded part. The shack is a wonder. Run by a lady from Manali the shack is opens only in peak season and serves awesome sea food and Italian pasta. The beach is so clean that you can see it for some distance in the sea. As the beach is not frequented by tourists the option for water sports is limited and no nagging vendors mind you. The beach is safe for swimming. The pathway to the beach has few shops and the villages has home-stay options and small hotels. Though we halted at Colva, but a better option for couples would definitely be Benaulim. The place to fall in love again.
