Velsao beach is a clear white pristine beach that is one of the cleanest beaches in Goa. It is well known for its quiet and calm atmosphere with fresh air, silver sand and lush green landscape. The beach was once polluted due to the activity of a chemical fertilizer factory. However, due to continued efforts and protests by the public, the flora, fauna and fishing industry of the beach was restored.
