Home :: Goa Beaches :: Colva Beach
Colva Beach, GoaLocation
Colva is a small village in south Goa on the shores of the Arabian Sea. It lies 39 km away from Panaji, capital of the Indian state of Goa.
Goa has a consistent climate through the year with just meager fluctuations in the temperature. December and January might require light woolens. April and May are warm. The period from June to October brings heavy rain, almost up to 400 cm. The temperature during the summers ranges from 24°C to 32.7°C and during the winters it ranges from 21.3°C to 32.2°C.
With 20 km of virgin white sands, palm fringed, and sun drenched beaches, Colva is the most loved beach for Goans. Colva beach is pride of Salcette and the only rival to Calangute by its scenic splendour. The natural & unique blend of sand, sea and sky is harmonious and enchanting. Colva is given the title of 'Queen of Beaches in India', as this beach has no equal in India. It's like a paradise, with 40 Km of unstopped white sand fringed with coconut palms along the whole of its length and a warm, calm sea. The silver-gray, powder-fine sand of the beach has been the inspiration for many folk tales and songs.
The Main Attraction of Colva Beach
Nossa Senhora de Merces (Our Lady of Mercy) Church
The church is famous for its annual religious event-Fama of Menino Jesuse (Child Jesus)-since the 17th century. The predominantly Catholic community celebrates it on the third Monday of October every year. It is one of Goas most popular feasts and a big fair is held on this occasion.
On the Beach
The seen on the beach is colourful, with tourists both - Indian and foreigners, as well as locals -can be seen strolling in colourful dresses. Many of them can be seen having a sunbath on the golden sands. The novelty stalls and the drink stands on the golden sands under the moonlight makes the evening on the Colva Beach simply romantic.
