Butterfly Beach, Goa
Butterfly beach is a tiny beach cove that lies just to the north of Palolem beach at a distance of about 37 km from Margao. The sands here are perfectly white and the water translucent. There is no access to the beach by road since the area is heavily forested. One can take a 2 hour trek through the forest. Vehicles, not even bikes can make the trip through the forest since the road takes one through brooks, steep climbs, fields and forested areas.
Usually tourists take a short boat ride up from Palolem beach to reach here. Since there is no access by road, not many people visit this beach and visitors who make it here can enjoy the beach all by themselves. Behind the beach are hills full of dense vegetation. There are no buses that travel to this beach.
