Sea Shells on the Sea Shore – Quegdevelim beach

Quegdevelim Beach

Quegdevelim Beach

In my research on the Reis Magos fort (post to appear soon), using Google maps, I chanced upon a tiny beach on the other side of the Mandovi river. It was called Quegdevelim and nicknamed, Bathers’ Paradise. This weekend I decided to explore it.

Quegdevelim, is one of those beaches where you still find shells. An evidence that it is yet untouched by the vagaries of modern civilisation.

The beach itself is a very tiny, private kind of place, frequented by the families living around.

Worn by the tossing seas, the rocks are naturally cut into unique formations, such as mini-waterfalls like this.

Some were even covered by lush green algae.

It’s a place where I felt so much at home for the hour that I was there.

If you feel choked by the city, I guess, this beach can work wonders!

(Note: I recently got some information from my neighbour, Savio Fernandes, on the name of the beach. Quegdevelim originates from two Portuguese words: Quegde or Kegde means Kerim/Querim/Keri or water plant with long leaves found at the watersides while –Velim is valley)
