Benaulim beach, next to Colva beach, was once a famous fishing destination in Goa. Today, it has turned into a thriving tourist destination. The nearest airport and railway station to Benaulim beach is at Dabolim (70 km)and Karmali (50 km). Situated in south Goa on the shores of the Arabian Sea, it enjoys a pleasant climate throughout the year. The Church of St John the Baptist is a major attraction near the beach. People enjoy the grand feast of St John the Baptist (Sao Joao), which is celebrated as a thanks-giving on the arrival of the monsoon. Several tourists visit Benaulim in the months of October to May, to watch the bull fights.
