Vasco Da Gama Tourism & Travel Guide

On the western tip of Goa and Mormugao peninsula lies the lively port city of Vasco Da Gama. Even though the city itself is busy and dusty, a few places justify halting here for a day before getting your Goa trip started. Just behind Dabolim airport is the Bogmalo beach, small and quaint, but pretty nevertheless. If you want a little privacy, pay a visit to the Velsao Beach. It is not touristy and you may even spot a dolphin or two here. For a spectacular view of the sea, climb up a few stairs to visit the Japanese Garden on a hillock on a breezy evening. The Naval Aviation Museum behind the airport is a great way to pass time if you are interested in the history of Indian Naval Aviation. Vintage air crafts, helicopters and vessels preserved here will give you a taste of the heritage of the port city. Another must-see is the ancient St. Andrews Church in Vasco da Gama. The walls are adorned with beautiful azulejos and the cemetery is maintained well. If nothing else, a relaxing walk on the beach will make Vasco Da Gama absolutely worth it.

South Goa District, Vasco da Gama 403802
We woke up at 6 A.M and walked towards the exit of the mess. Then took two buses for Bogmolo Beach. Man! what a view it was when we reached the Beach. We started shouting with excitement as none of us had ever been to beaches except my cousin. The view from far was so mesmerising that words can't express.

We headed back to Dabolim Airport with the sadness that comes at end of every trip.
