GOA: Large parts the Salcete’s beaches are being gobbled up by the sea. Fisherfolk and others residing near beaches agree that sand erosion is a normal annual phenomenon, but add that it has been unusually severe this season.
The havoc inflicted by waves along the Colva, Benaulim, Varca coastline has resulted in the creation of a precipitous drop on the shoreline. A section of sand dune vegetation has been washed away. “At least 20% of the vegetation on this stretch of the shore has disappeared into the sea,” a fisherman said.
