We started at 10 am from taj benaulim (this is further away from benaluim which is a 30 min walk from taj benaulim)
we stopped on the way to buy some water and soft drinks.
The life guards all are from drishti and are doing a great job and have communication equipment to co-ordinate rescue.This was not there in 2003.
Taj Benaulim -> Benaulim /Banavali? -> Colva -> Betal Batim
Some travellers were riding their bikes on the beach so it looks like there is a cycle shop in colva which rents out these cycles.
