About São Jacinto
5. São Jacinto, GoaIn 1972, the people of Sao Jacinto decided to never lease out their land to commercialisation and hotel constructions of any kind. This decision taken over 40 years ago has now given Sao Jacinto a preserved natural habitat that we can only imagine. The only two structures (except old houses) here are St. Hyacinthi Cathedral and an abandoned Portuguese lighthouse.A bridge called Silver Gate Bridge connects the tiny island to the nearest mainland. There is also an underwater tunnel that can be reached through Siridao beach. How to reach: You can stop here on the way to Dabolim Airport. It is about 5 kms from Bogmalo.
