If you just want to relax while in Goa, put up your feet in a sunbed, enjoy your continental and Konkani food, and drinks, then Betalbatim is the beach for you.
The Betalbatim beach is 18.5 kilometers from Vasco da Gama, and 10.7 kilometers from Margao by the Colva Beach Road. It is just 4 kilometers from Colva, South Goa’s more popular beach, especially with the Indian tourists.
Betalbatim has retained its original charm and identity even while thousands of tourists visit Goa in the main season, often making the most popular beaches very crowded.
Unlike most Goa beaches that are lined up with palm trees, this beach has numerous pine trees along the shoreline. Betalbatim is known for its clean golden sand and beautiful surroundings. Tourists who prefer quieter beaches often choose Betalbatim over its more crowded neighbor, Colva. The beach gently slopes down to the Arabian Sea so it's safe for swimming.
