Butterfly Beach In 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. This beach, also known as Honeymoon Beach, is in the form of a small cove surrounded by dense trees. It is slightly remote and is difficult to access on foot, making it one of the most secluded and peaceful beaches in Goa. Interestingly, this beautiful Butterfly beach is so named as the surrounding trees attract a wide variety of butterflies occasionally. Also, it may be because the beach itself is in the shape of a butterfly! Either way that is just as pretty as one, especially during sunsets.
