Serene and Secluded

It is known for its pristine sandy shores, clear blue waters, and lush greenery that surrounds the area. The beach gets its name from the numerous butterfly species that inhabit the region, adding to its natural charm.

Butterfly Beach is a haven for nature enthusiasts and photographers. The untouched beauty of the beach, along with the lush green hills that provide a stunning backdrop, offers plenty of photo opportunities.

Teeming with Marine Life

While Butterfly Beach is relatively peaceful, the waters are teeming with marine life, and lucky tourists might spot playful dolphins in the Arabian Sea.

The best time to visit Butterfly Beach is during the post-monsoon and winter months, from October to March. During this period, the weather is pleasant, and the sea is calm, making it ideal for sunbathing, swimming, and water sports. Monsoon season, from June to September, should be avoided due to heavy rainfall and rough seas.
