Best Time to Visit Benaulim Beach
Looking for best time to visit Benaulim Beach?
If yes, you have come to the right place. Best time to visit Benaulim Beach is from November till March.
The Benaulim Beach can also be called the Fishing Paradise, and it is probably the quietest beach of North Goa. The beach still falls under the “undiscovered destination” and thus should be expected to be less crowded, less polluted, clean and calm. As you move 2 km further from the Colva Beach, you will come across the magnificent Benaulim Beach. As per Hindu mythology, it was here that the arrow of Lord Parasurama landed on earth, when he was creating Goa.
The Portuguese corrupted the original name ‘Banali’, in Sanskrit, and named the beach as ‘Benualim’. Benaulim Beach abounds in natural beauty as well as serenity. It is the perfect place to forget all the worldly tensions and indulge yourself. Though a fishing destination, it is still left largely unexplored by the domestic tourists of India.
Just like the other beaches of Goa, Benaulim Beach also has a string of snack joints, serving delicious food. The village of Benualim is as popular as the beach is. Its rosewood furniture and exquisite carvings are renowned throughout the country. There are a number of tourist spots near the beach. One of them is the ‘Church of St John the Baptist’, which lies on a hill just beyond the village. The major attractions of the church include its exquisite architecture, based on the type Goan Christian style, and the Feast of St. John the Baptist (Sao Joao).
