“Clean and safe”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Very clean beach and life guards there (if you are staying at the Taj Exotica) so quite safe too. Not too many people hasseling you either. Water sports also available. There was a shack on the beach butr we didn't eat there.

“Lovely wide, sandy beach”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Benaulim beach is lovely, but it depends on which end you go! We spent most of our time away from the more touristy bits, down by the main beach road car park (although did venture down there for enterainment and dinner some nights.) The further down you walk, however, the more peaceful it gets, and the more you feel like you have the beach to yourself. Our favourite shack, "HawaiI", was further down and was a great find - fantastic people, music, food, with regular fire parties.

“beautiful beach, soft sand, clean water.”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

the beach is beautiful with a nice slope, soft sand and clean water. Romp about in the water, or go for some water sports - paragliding, banana boat ride, sea cruise or water jet ride. Don't forget to carry a strong sunscreen lotion. You can just laze on the beach or buy a beer at one of the shacks and spend some time in the shade, reading the book. You can eye the bikini clad babes, but be discreet about it, don't stare (it's a no-no as far as beach etiquette is concerned). Rest, relax and gorge on the scrumptious seafood served at a plethora of shacks along the beach.

“Clean & Peaceful Beach”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Beach is clean with very few people at the beach which makes the beach peaceful

Good Shacks available like Johncy, Cocos, Ice cube. to have good food, drinks & hukkah

Road towards the beach in the night is too lonely with poor lighting

You may not get good deals for doing water sports, please visit colva beach for the same
