Goa Adventures 2015 – Benaulim Beach
The last September (2015) I was volunteering in Goa with Mission Rabies for vaccinating dogs and educating children. This was day one of my two-week volunteering trip to Goa. We had a small briefing about our volunteering schedule for the coming days. Before we started doing all the work, we took a day off in Benaulim beach to enjoy one of the more beautiful beaches of Goa.
Benaulim beach has a beautiful laid back vibe to it with white sand which is not very well know to the domestic tourists.
There are plenty of palm groves around the beach, giving it beautiful views with nice winds moving in from all sides.
The beach also has rich marine life, we could see a lot of clams and star fishes all over the beach. Unfortunately, The low tides washed a lot of star fishes and clams to the shore. It looks like a beautiful place to snorkel and dive.
There have boat rides that depart from the beach offering some basic water sports for adventure seekers. We could see some children playing beach cricket, which was something I saw in other beaches of Goa as well.
There was a very small crowd at the beach, making it perfect to relax and unwind. It was nice to not just see the marine life, but also dogs and herds of cows strolling by the coastline.
The majority of Dogs at Benaulim were vaccinated against rabies from the year before, it was nice to have a look at what we were going to do in the coming days.
We spent the evening enjoying the beautiful horizons across the shore before moving into one of the shacks to enjoy some yummy seafood with Feni, Goan style.
