The Four Scenic Beaches of South Goa

Life is not just a holiday, but much beyond it. Life is search for beauty and tranquility, love and togetherness and interaction with the nature. And all these can be found in a holiday destination where azure sea punctuates with clear sky, white sand shines with sunrise and life gets a new meaning with late night parties and lone evening walk. When I describe nature with such touching adjectives, I mean to talk about only one place, Goa, more specifically South Goa.

The beaches of South Goa are not as crowded as those of the north. Instead their less crowded look adds up to their beauty and extravagance. Not exactly a party goer’s destination, South Goa is for those who want to experience the silent part of life devoid of the daily hustle bustle. A relaxed sit on the golden beaches relieves you of all your tensions. Dip into the deep blue sea provides with lifetime refreshment in the extreme vicinity of nature.

Benaulim beach is just a 25 minutes drive from Panjim and offers a completely different world altogether. Water sport activities, dolphin sightseeing trips and laid back sand stretches are what Benaulim is decked up with. Its proximity to Colva beach does not entertain the influx of tourists, and what makes Benaulim more pristine and serene. The beach is all yours. If you do not want to engage in water sports, then simply lie down on the sand, soak off in the sun and enjoy the graciousness of nature. The beach is well known for fishing activities and interestingly you can enjoy an array of delicious sea food preparations. Though undiscovered by Indian tourists, a lot of foreigners flock here to enjoy their extended vacation on Indian beaches.

Another scenic destination in South Goa is Palolem, decorated by soft sand and tall palm trees. The beach is 27 miles drive from Margao and has recently emerged as one of the most gorgeous and rocking beaches of Goa. As the popularity of Palolem is one the rise, more visitors are flocking in every season to enjoy the beauty of the region. A wide variety of budget and luxury hotels along with coco huts never leaves a traveler homeless. If you are in search of a rich nightlife sipping your favorite wine, then head to the southern edge of the beach. An array of bars will serve the drink of your choice.

Very close to Palolem is Patnem beach, which is more secluded and less noisy as compared to Palolem. Nestled between some two cliffs, it offers a picturesque natural setting where you can go close to the nature and keep all your worries miles away. Though nightlife facilities are less common here, a range of luxurious resorts offer a comfortable stay altogether.

Varca beach is where you can find an array of luxury resorts. Classical performances, live music and casinos will cheer you up like a freaky traveler. Relax on the beach and enjoy fishing activities and watch the sun immersing into the sea water.

Be it your family vacation or honeymoon or a bachelor’s party for that matter, South Goa should be included in your holiday destinations’ list. So, next time you visit India, never miss out on this happening and picturesque beach destination of India.
