A hidden land of adventure, peppered with some stunning views & aquatic life; that’s Butterfly Beach for you! The beauty of the hidden gem has an aura of calmness and bliss attached to it. Semi-circle shaped landscape, millions of butterflies flying over the hilltop blossoms, and acrobatics of the dolphins around ensure a wonderful experience at the Butterfly Beach in Goa.
Seldom do we meet people who have heard about the Butterfly beach in Goa. And out of those few who have, many know it by the name of Butterfly island. The semi-circular shape and the fact that is accessed by a boat ride give the tourists an impression of an island.
Just to confirm, it is NOT an island. It is a beach, situated north of Palolem beach. In fact, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in South Goa. However, it is easier to reach the beach by a boat ride from the nearby beaches as the land journey involves a challenging forest hike.
As the name suggests, Butterfly beach is the abode of numerous beautiful butterflies. But what the name doesn’t tell us is that during low tides, when the seashore widens, the beach is littered with crabs and goldfishes. Sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and even redfish are common sights here.
Talking of the aquatic life of the Butterfly Beach, it would be criminal not to mention dolphins that can be seen playing near the shores of the beach. And though there are more places in Goa to spot the dolphins, what sets this beach leagues apart from the rest is the fact that it is more-or-less secluded. So, one can expect the beautiful creatures to be enjoying themselves in a carefree manner.
