varcaVarca has one of the longest stretches among the beaches in Salcette. The vast expanse of white sand is ideal for those seeking peace and quiet. The only ones to intrude are local vendors selling their wares. The place is often referred to as two beaches – Varca and Fatrade.

There are autos from Margao and Colva to Varca. You can then walk down to the beach. You can also use bicycle, motorcycle or taxi from Benaulim to reach the beach.

You can take a boat trip on the sal river or go for leisure cruises, bird watching, dolphin spotting and fishing trips.
