Hansa Beach is extremely beautiful and tranquil beach. Hansa Beach is not part of commercial and public beaches of Goa. Hansa is a clean beach with pristine waters. However the beach is controlled by the Indian navy wing due to its location to close proximity to major naval installations in the area. The navy regularly cleans up the beach to ensure it remains spotless clean. Access to the beach is through the INS Hansa Naval base beside the Naval Aviation Museum.
This beach is safe for swimming and is free from the flowing currents. The long stretch of the sand at the beach is best for long walks. It is believed that this beach has access of naval personnel and their families only.
The Hansa Beach is not accessible to tourists or the public in general. However if the patrolling sentry is in a good mood a small portion of the beach is permitted for use.
