Betul Beach. Attractions and sightseeing

Betul is one of those delightful and adorable places in South Goa, where you can go through and see different sides of nature, people and history. This place is a wonderful piece of land at the junction of river and sea, modernity and history, old traditions and modern tendencies of life. This place is certainly worth a visit!

Betul is remarkable, first of all, due to its unique location at the mouth of the River Sal and its varied terrain. The beach attracts lovers of exotic and solitude. It is also very interesting to watch the life of local citizens, who carefully retain the traditional way of life of Goan fishermen. If you will ever have a chance to visit some holiday or festival, than, no doubts, you will get millions of unforgettable impressions from such a great explosion of colors and sounds, which prevail on every Goa holiday, and these impressions will remain in your memory forever. For example, Holi Festival, which is held in late February — early March, comparing with some other cities of Goa, is a real national holiday in Betul.

Not so far away from Betul coastline amazing Baradi Cross Church is situating. This is beautiful old church with a cross on its top. According to the legend, the cross, which now decorates the dome of the Church, once, centuries ago, stood in the deep woods and came into a dream to the local priest. The Holy Father found it and brought it to the Church. Now on the place where the cross once stood people can see a chapel. It is believed that the cross is a miraculous and can treat from any disease. That’s why this magical place attracts people from neighboring villages. From the hill, where the Church stands, you can enjoy magnificent panorama of the western coast of Goa, Arabian Sea and the River Sal.

You can get to the Temple by specially built road, which is not that much hard to find.

One more interesting place in Betul is the ruins of Fort of XVII century. The Fort was built by Hindu national hero — Shivaji. He raised a rebellion against the centuries-old Sultan’s reign and after the overthrow of Sultan he created a strong Marathas state. After the death of Shivaji in 1680 the Fort came under the control of the Portuguese, and remained under their possession until 1961.
