I say “Beaches are always romantic”. But what if one is sitting at a serene beach at midnight and moon is dancing down on the other side of the horizon? Well I say that is “Icing on the cake”! That was what my midnight sojourn at Calalgute beach, Goa.
Most popular beaches are very happening in the day and continues to be in the evening. But once the crowd leaves and the beach is engulfed in dark. The darkness is only broken by some twinkle rays of distant light in the background. In this serene setting the silence is only broken by the sound of waves which keeps hitting the shore like musical notes. In the distant sea horizon, some twinkling lights were visible. They should be some fishing trawler or ship. I sat there after my dinner, watching the moon shining with silver colour rays and the Arabian sea reflecting the rays in equal intensity. It was a treat to the eyes. An experience, I never had before. Later, as a true monsoon outing the clouds started playing hide and seek with moon.
I sat in front of Hotel Park Calangute. Through my time spent there, I felt it is safe to venture out there at midnight. However, do not go to very isolated places. For women, please do not go out alone. However, you may sit in front of your hotel premises.
