A natural marvel, The Butterfly beach is in form of a small isolated cove and can be reached best by a boat from the Palolem beach. One can enjoy the thrilling ride by the paddle boat towards the beach with some frolicking dolphins for company.
The beach is surrounded by a plenty of rocks. Here one can see a tiny stretch of perfect white sand and transparent waters. During low tide, one can easily reach the butterfly beach by taking a delightful stroll enjoying hiking trails and sunsets on the way. Low tides here create a vast canvas on the beach with footsteps of crabs and goldfishes. This little piece of paradise can also be reached by walking for a couple of hours through a forest.
Interestingly The Butterfly beach is called so because in the past, when the trees on the hillside near the beach bloomed, lots of butterflies thronged the beach filling it with colour and beauty.
