Betul Beach – the magical shore in South Goa
Betul is a small coastal village in South Goa, which is located in Salcete Taluk (Salcete region), 24 km from Margao city. This is not only a nice resort but also a fishing port, where both fishing boats and ocean-going trawlers are bringing their catch to.
The main occupation of residents here is fishing. Betul Village consists primarily of huts and cabins; separate houses and cottages are not so much here – nearly 60 units only. People are living amicably; every evening children and women are gathering together to talk about different things, to play games and have fun.
Betul is located in the south of Mobor Beach, on the opposite bank of the River Sal, exactly at its delta. The river separates the beach from the village. This is an incredibly beautiful and interesting place, very suitable for people of romantic nature who are looking for solitude and loneliness and are yearn for connection with nature. The cool ocean breeze ensures pleasant temperatures all year round. The relatively small secluded beach, which occupies the eastern coast of the River Sal, is hidden in the pleasant shadow of fruit trees and coconut palms and cast a spell onto tourists and guests with its soft silvery sand. The beach has a small lagoon and a river that flows to the sea. A field road with a slight slant leads to the beach. Amazing, unforgettable and breathtakingly beautiful view onto Mobor Resort and the Ocean appears before the eyes of everyone who are coming here.

The most delicious and large mussels on the whole coast are cooked here.
