Butterfly beach is a tiny beach cove that lies just to the north of Palolem beach at a distance of about 37 km from Margao. The sands here are perfectly white and the water translucent. There is no access to the beach by road since the area is heavily forested. One can take a 2-hour trek through the forest. Vehicles, not even bikes can make the trip through the forest since the road takes one through brooks, steep climbs, fields and forested areas.
Usually, tourists take a short boat ride up from Palolem beach to reach here. Since there is no access by road, not many people visit this beach and visitors who make it here can enjoy the beach all by themselves. Behind the beach are hills full of dense vegetation. There are no buses that travel to this beach.

Interesting facts about Bhagwan Mahavir
As the name suggests, Butterfly beach is the abode of numerous beautiful butterflies. But what the name doesn’t tell us is that during low tides, when the seashore widens, the beach is littered with crabs and goldfishes. Sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and even redfish are common sights here.
Talking of the aquatic life of the Butterfly Beach, it would be criminal not to mention dolphins that can be seen playing near the shores of the beach. And though there are more places in Goa to spot the dolphins, what sets this beach leagues apart from the rest is the fact that it is more-or-less secluded. So, one can expect the beautiful creatures to be enjoying themselves in a carefree manner.
We have repeatedly mentioned the beach to be a secret. Wondering why? Well, the tiny beach cove of white sands & translucent waters are heavily forested. Vehicles, not even the two-wheelers or ATVs can make the trip that goes through water bodies, steep climbs, fields, and forested areas.
