Starfish are beautiful and I love beaches. Well, you must be wondering what is the connection between both the statements I wrote. Well, there is! I love beaches and spotting starfish on the beaches make it more lovable for me. I really don’t like doing to aquarium since I have tried Snorkeling in Andaman & Nicobar islands. Seeing fishes in their natural habitat have been one of the best experiences of my life so far. Since then, I have stopped visited aquariums and prefer exploring the beaches and under water to experience the marine life. Not many people are able to spot starfish naturally.
I am lucky to spot beautiful starfish in India naturally. Here are 5 beautiful beaches in India where you too can expect to spot starfish:
1. Majorda Beach, Goa-
This is the first beach where I spotted starfishes. I couldn’t believe my eyes. At first, I thought they all were dead but when I touched it, it moved. And then, a strong wave took it back to the sea. Amazing experience it was!
2. Neil Island, Andaman & Nicobar islands-
Next was this beach, where I spotted starfish. Neil island will always be one of my favourites. Not just starfish, but I spotted so many amazing fishes that I didn’t even know they exist.
3. Coral Island, Andaman & Nicobar islands-
Coral island is one of the best islands I’ve ever been. You can spot starfishes, dolphins & many more amazing sea-creatures here. This is also the place where I tried snorkeling for the first time. I know I have said this many times but trust me, it was the best experience so far, especially because that time I didn’t know how to swim. Scary but memorable experience it was. I swam with the starfish! Coral island of Andaman & Nicobar islands is one of the best places to experience marine life & enjoy water sports.
4. Palolem Beach, Goa-
Palolem beach in Goa is not just one of the cleanest and beautiful beaches in India, but when you talk a walk across the shoreline, you can spot beautiful starfish too! It’s totally worth time and effort and of course, photography.
5. Bangaram Beach, Lakshadweep-
This is one place on my wish-list but my brother has visited this amazing beach called Bangaram in Lakshadweep islands and told me how easily you can spot starfish here. So, make sure it’s on your list when you plan a trip to Lakshadweep.
