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.
