The spice plantation can be found here as well, with its wide range of spices filling the crisp air with delicious aroma. The locals are always ready to welcome you and show you around, as well as help you see how beautiful and inviting their town or village is.


Varca Beach simply adorns the entire Goa with its 10 km stretch of marvellous white sand covering seashore and the glittering blue waves hugging the coast. It has beautiful black lava rocks dotting the sand along with sunbeds and loungers, so as to admire the soothing scenery. It's a pleasant place that ejects undisputed beauty of nature. Varca is a home to the local fishing community and so wooden fishing boats are lined in some areas. There are plenty of five star hotels and budget lodgings that are located just behind the beach amongst lovely gardens and striking surroundings. There are numerous beach shacks that offer mouth-watering seafood at low prices.


Here, the nature is almost unspoilt and you can easily spend some beautiful moments of peace. Decorated with lush greenery, beach is surrounded with palm trees and other vegetation. The place is extremely calm and peaceful, which is very far away from the shores of North Goa. This place is always attracted by beach lovers and honeymoon couples as one can spend time in enjoying boat trips and watching dolphins on the river Sal. In brief, Varca beach is a perfect location for tourists looking for peace and serenity.
