We went on a boat jaunt to a secluded beach that the locals call an island but "it isn’t really an island...there’s just no easy way to get to the beach, so we call it an island”. Can’t argue with the logic of India! Situated between Palolem and Agonda beaches, it's a tiny little place called Butterfly Beach and is accessible via boat or a trek through forest.
We took an esky load of beers (and water...we’re responsible adults after all) and snacks plus loads of sunscreen, and spent the afternoon repeating 'Vin’s Mantra' - chill, swim, eat, drink, relax, repeat.
Naturally, we returned home with the water (you didn’t really think we were going to drink it, did you?!?) and we were just in time to watch the sun disappear during yet another fabulous dinner on the beach.
It's a tough life.
