There is this ferry terminal which is  clearly visible from old Goa jetty which will take you to the beautiful divar island,  where one can get lost and explore many things . Good thing about this ferry ride is that it's free ( only four wheelers will be charged )

Mount Mary chapel

Most of the tourists who visit old goa have no idea that this place exists.  This is a must see place.  This is also near by,  all you need to do is use a Google Map or ask any local about this place.  Most of the film shooting is done here and this is a sweet spot for wedding shoots.

Is it really haunted?  No I dont know and I have gone here many times but I didn't feel like this place is haunted as some people say.  But you can't see any people wandering here once it gets dark.  The view from here is very beautiful,  one can easily see St Augustine remains,  adil shah palace,  Se cathedral and divar island from here.
