You can’t miss the Hansa Beach if you are arriving in Goa by air. The Hansa Beach is that clean stretch of sand near the seaward end of the airstrip of the Dabolim Airport, Goa’s only airport. The bad news is that the Hansa Beach is usually off-limits to the general public. The reason? It is a part of the property of the INS Hansa, the largest naval airbase of the Indian Navy. Incidentally, the Dabolim Airport is a civil enclave situated right within the INS Hansa airbase. But you never know. You might get lucky and be allowed by the sentry to enjoy a quick ‘walk around’. One bit of advise though, be polite and ask nicely.
