Divar Island, an exotic destination in Goa near Panjim, where only a few people rich in local knowledge generally go. It is a place which has massive plantations of trees, greenery, a calming and soothing lake, an ancient church and much much more. But what's most interesting about this place is the Mercure Goa Devaaya Retreat, which is well hidden and not commercialised. It is located bang between a huge coconut plantation and has a lake just close to it. It is a retreat where people go to relax and detox. You need a lot of that after partying after all.
An island situated near South Goa. It in my opinion, can be called as the god's own country of Goa. A picturesque place, breathtaking views of the mountain valleys. Felt like a home, away from the hustle and bustle of a daily city life. A quiet, calm and serene island teeming with sounds of the insects and crickets as the sun goes down. And the birds retreating back to their nests after a long tiring day of feeding their family and a relaxing evening of enjoying the sounds of the waves crashing against the seashore. Young people can be seen enjoying a bottle of beer beside the calm waters and smiling and sharing happy memories with their friends. This is what makes up their evenings which I could comprehend that day. Also, one can see quite a number of people in the mini supermarkets during the evenings chit chatting with the owners. Very friendly and welcoming crowd.
