The sand covers itself into hues of golden rays and view is spectacular.Advise- Go barefoot to enjoy sunrise. Walk into the slow gentle waves as they wash the shore, feel the cool breeze and love the breathtaking sight in front of you. If you are accompanied with your love interest, its icing on the cake.Varca beach - This exotic beach has white sand and a lot of peace and serenity, making it an ideal spot for sea bathing. Magnificent Palm trees around seashore line made it more beautiful. Lots of little white crab were around the beach.Colva-Benaulim-Varca – this is one endless stretch of white sand beach.We move towards Benaulim. You could find some best spa here to pamper yourself.You can get tattoos and hair braiding done at a very cheap price. You just need to bargain.We saw the lovely sunset at beach.Advise – Try different cocktails in Goa like Prawn Cocktail with Jack Daniels Sauce, yummier and tastier. Try their local drink ‘Fenny’ but not all love this drink.We returned to our stay and end our day with street shopping at Colva beach. We brought few souvenir at very cheap rate (all thanks to our bargaining skills), some cool shorts and T-shirts at unbelievable price. For girls, you get really cool clothes at very less price.

How To Reach Benaulim
Book Benaulim Tour Package
Colva is a village in south goa and the beach stretches about for about 2.4kms of white sand and coconut palms, it is a famous tourist destination with budget hotels, shacks, pubs etc. It was a popular getaway for the Portugese when they were in India, this place has alot of migrants from Portugal, Brazil, Angola etc.
From there, Benaulim. It pretty much looked exactly the same as Utorda, with more foreigners and restaurants. Looking north (and south) I realized its just one long strip of sand divvied up into different beaches, so in essence they’re all the same… It all depends on whether you prefer to have some pretense of seclusion or easy access to overpriced restaurants.
Varca - one of many white sand beaches in South Goa, but the only one we found pristine and the most untouched. Less people, no shacks marks the essence of Varca.Word of advice - As mentioned there are no shacks in Varca, not advisable to visit if you are looking to munch by the bay.As is guessable we were indeed looking for some food when we reached Varca, and without putting up for a longer time there we headed to Colva.
The Seminary once housed the famous Museum of Christian Art, containing church artifacts collected from all over Goa. The green way that leads to the seminary is beautiful beyond explanation. Every corridor of the Rachol Seminary is furnished with paintings which speak volumes about the rich history.
GOA a place with excelent cost lines. South Goa costline is less crowded while north Goa is very much crowded. Some beaches are clean while some are very dirty. Overall the place is very good place to chill. The roads are awesome and there are no signals in Goa. You can get a rented vehicle very easily be it a 2 wheeler or a 4 wheeler. There are plenty of hotel ranging from low cost travel hostels to luxurious villas. The locals are very helpful so you fell completely safe in any area of Goa.
Firefly Goan Bistro Bar
Bust a move to some jazz and rock at a bistro barWhile Goa is known for its clubs and discotheques, most tourists are unaware of the state's musical heritage that goes beyond the conventional venues. This time when you're in Goa, spend a night with the locals swaying and busting a move to a jazz event at a neighbourhood joint. Try the family-owned Firefly Goan Bistro Bar at Benaulim for some retro rock and jazz. The place is owned by the makers of feni (Goan liquor) brand Cazulo, so you know the alcohol will match the music.
