Holant Beach (2.6.11)

Welcome to Holant beach

A beautiful picnic spot, a sort of natural and safe sea water swimming pool for both young and old.
And to add to your safety, there are two lifeguards too since 2009 closely watching your every movement at sea.

This is a small beach often busy all days of the week but if possible avoid the crowded weekends.
The beach is mainly visited by locals (Goans) making a very popular picnic spot which includes bathing.
Today Thursday 2.6.11,  we visited the beach around noon.
Perhaps, the last day of the summer as it started raining almost all night 2.6.11

We had bath and then we had  lunch at the only restaurant Copacabana on the beach.

We had our Goan Xit-coddi there for Rs.70 per person. The Mackerel curry was
so good that I end up  drinking all the leftover from the curry bowl,
 (Reminded me of the comedy by Com. John d’ Silva)
