Benaulim Beach – As radiant as it can get

Firstly, wishing all the fellow bloggers and readers ‘Happy New Year’!! It’s been almost a month since my last post, I have been traveling and catching up with loved ones 🙂 So, blogging got out of attention purview. Well, I’m back and here’s the first post for the year….

I saw flurry of colors taking off and

Landing smoothly on the calm waves

I witnessed the smiles while memories were made

The drawings on the golden sand

Making impression on my heart

I wish I could stop Time or may be capture it in a magical box…….

The beautiful Benaulim Beach gave us memories of a lifetime!!

Benaulim now a town in South Goa district (Salcette stretch) was erstwhile known as Banahalli. After Portuguese intervention it was given a new name and since then it has stayed so.

The region has two beautiful churches – The Holy Trinity Church and the St. John Baptist Church. Both the churches have peculiar appeal. However it’s prime beauty is its Benaulim beach adorned with tranquil waves, the swinging coconut trees, the creatures that greet you here and golden sands.

We spent whole evening here and it was just wholesome entertainment. There were more people swimming here as the waves on this beach were super calm. There was parasailing, jet skiing, boat riding, wind surfing, people jogging, playing volley ball, doing yoga and much more.

The number of sea stars that greeted us here was incredible. Not just that there were all different kinds of crab and all other tiny creatures touching the feet. And Jelly fishes too!!

The varieties of Starfish here was unbelievable, some of them were close to water and hence managed to survive but few others just waited for long to unite with the sea.

      • No need to try. I’m always here. And to be honest, I got a reminder today that I haven’t written anything for 18 days. Life. It does that. My family are all well though none with me in France – husband in the US since November and daughters variously in Malaysia (though coming back to Europe at the end of the month after 4 1/2 years) and Britain. I miss them all, of course but we have our baby birds to give them roots and wings – roots that will never falter and wings to fly 🦅

  1. Beautiful photos – I love all these photos, but the starfish images with the words are awesome … nicely done. The family photos will be treasured long after the glow of this trip wears off. I like your tank top … I am Canadian, lived here in the U.S. since 1966, but still a Canadian citizen. Happy New Year!

    • Hi Peta,
      Thank you so much. It’s great to know you are headed for India next 🙂 I stay in Delhi. We stayed in South Goa. So, all the beaches we have covered are majorly the South Goa ones except for one or two in North.
      Happy New Year to too.
      Cheers, Charu
