how to reach varca beach

The beach is approximately 10 km from the city of Margao. You can easily reach Varca by bus or taxi, which are easily available from KTC Bus Stand. Bus won't stop near the beach, however it is pretty easy to find once you get to the village. The main road leading to the beach will take you to a T-junction. On your left lies the Club Mahindra resort and Zuri. The road on the right will take you right up to the beach (after some twists and turns).

about varca beach

The first thing that you notice on Varca Beach is the absence of crowd which so typical of the beaches. You can even cycle here when the tides are low. While exploring this beach, you will come across rows of large fishing boats which belong to the Christian community here. You can spot the fishermen in action if you come during dawn or dusk. The sun sinking into the sea in all its red blazing glory, and the silhouettes of the fishermen throwing open their nets, come together to create a vivid image in your mind.

Since it's not that popular, you won’t find a lot of shacks on this beach. There is one at the main beach entrance called the Mama’s kitchen, one next to Club Mahindra and another opposite hotel Zuri. Like the Betalbatim beach, Varca is also lined with pine trees. Once you are done with the beach you can also visit the nearby Varca village. It is quite well developed and full of shops and other modern conveniences. There is a signpost near the Varca church which reads, “You are being watched”. Ominous much?

We enjoyed our morning walk on the beach more than the evening one. In the morning the beach was quieter with a few of people. You will get a peace on the beach
