					Benaulim Beach

One of the quietest beaches in Goa, Benaulim beach begins where Colva beach ends. A famous beach
for fishing, Benaulim has remained largely undiscovered by domestic tourists. It's only in the evenings
and on weekends that his charming beach gets somewhat crowded. Thus, Benaulim Beach in Goa can be
the perfect getaway for you to bask the day off soaking in the sun and enjoy an idyllic vacation in Goa.

On each side of the sand drenched beachfront, the softly shelving sands glisten away almost to the
horizon, strewn with pictorial wooden fishing boats. You can encounter hawkers, masseurs and fruit
vendors appearing from time to time.

Attractions

Churches

Located on a hilltop beyond Benaulim village, the Church of St John the Baptist is worth a visit in
Benaulim. Every monsoon, the feast of St John the Baptist (Sao Joao) draws numerous tourists to the
church.

Beach Bonanza fair

The Beach Bonanza fair held on consecutive Sundays from mid-April onwards on the Benaulim Beach is a
must see for tourists here.

Food

Owing to the Christian Fishing Community in Benaulim Beach and its proximity to Margao market,
numerous restaurants have sprung up here, which serve some of the most succulent and cheap seafood
available in Goa. There are several shack cafes that are located on the beach front. On the other hand,
you can find food at reasonable prices in the smaller terrace restaurants along the beach and dotted
around the village.
