The main beach in the heart of the city, this is just a few minutes drive from the Panjim Main Market. Being is such a location, this beach is almost everytime crowded. The scenic beauty is awesome and the main reason is that this is the mouth of the Mandovi River. The slope of the beach is gentle and thus this place is ideal for swimming. You can also go for a morning or evening walk along the beach or sit and enjoy some snacks sold by the sellers who sit on the shores. This is however not the best beach if you are seeking one with lot of serenity and peacefulness.

3. Divar Island, GoaThe island of Divar lies in the Mandovi river in Goa. The rather huge island is home to some fascinating people and cultures. The island in itself has four villages which are diverse and fascinating in their practices. Its relative isolation has kept Divar in a unique state, which appears to be stuck in time. According to folktales, Divar was originally occupied by people of Old Goa who migrated here to escape a disastrous plague, which spread across Goa at that time.Every year Divar is decorated with lights to celebrate three festivals – two of them being Bonderam and Potekar. Bonderam is a carnival that takes place on every fourth Saturday of August, when each part of the village takes out their floats for the parade. Potekar, like Halloween, is celebrated three days before Lent and is a spectacle where locals roam around wearing handmade masks and bells!How to reach: Ferry from Ribandar and Old Goa. The island is about 10 km upriver from Panjim.

lots of options for seafood available here, enjoyed perfect view of the sunset.#One night for cruise nightEntry ticket is 300/- and not at all worth :pThey will start with some folk Goa dance and that was so so, but what I thought of cruise that it will be an open space, people were dancing, enjoying an evening with wine glasses looking around. but it was typical cruise. calling a bunch of people one by one on stage to dance, when it was my turn I just danced like hell whatever the song came to enjoy myself or to #paisawasool.
