Beach Overview
Halt just two kms before you reach Colva to pass some good time at tranquil beach of Benaulim. As a beach Benaulim has everything Colva has, except the crowds. Mainly a fishing village, Benaulim is still undiscovered by domestic tourists. This has helped it to maintain its natural charm. Except the evening and weekends when the vendors roam and local come for their evening walk, the beach remains mostly uncrowded. What is best about Benaulim is ofcourse its closeness to Colva, if you stay here you can enjoy the Colva's nightlife by maintaining your seclusion.

Apart from a fishing village, Benaulim is a village of gifted carpenters. Here you can see a number of ornamental altars in houses as well as churches, which depict the craftsmanship of carpenters. Like Colva, in Benaulim too, you will find beach shacks where you can enjoy some delicious sea food. Boat rides are also in offer at Benaulim beach and there are good chances of spotting the dolphins.
