Welcome to Benaulim

Out of season it has a somewhat desolate feel, but the lack of traffic or any serious beachfront development is an obvious attraction to many travellers, some of whom rent houses in the village and stay for the season. In many ways, this is the southern antithesis of Calangute and Baga in the north.

Benaulim has a special place in Goan tradition: legend has it that it was here that the god Parasurama’s arrow landed when he fired it into the sea to create Goa.
