Activities at Club Mahindra Varca Beach, Goa

stories

  • Goa and her beaches by Raj Niranjan Das

    Goa is not all about beaches. This is what I have been preaching in my previous posts. But, can we ignore those magnificent beaches. Is there any traveller or tourist who has been to Goa, visited the churches, the wildlife, the rivers and gone back without visiting at least a single beach I doubt. So here comes a list of beaches from my last visit to Bardez region (one of the sub-districts) of Goa.

Sight Seeing

1. Anjuna

Anjuna the most celebrated of Goa’s beaches, where the hippies used to hang out. Their departure has done nothing to rob the wide shelf of sand of its beauty and almost every visitor heads here, for it is one of the most picturesque beaches.

2. Calangute

Calangute was the first hippie beach resort at the height of the Flower Children era. Today, the hippies have mostly turned into yuppies. But the beach lies unchanged - pristine, serene golden sun and sand. The beach is about four miles long and covered with swaying palm trees.

3. Baga Beach

Baga lies between Anjuna and Calangute and is also termed as an extension of Calangute. It is difficult to make out where one ends and the other begins. Baga is a comparatively more crowded beach and is host to a number of hangout places.

4. Dona Paula

On the other side of this headland is the little bay and tiny beach of Dona Paula. Water scooters and speedboats buzz across the bay at the drop of a hat; guides will embroider on the woeful tale of this place. Legend has it that the name is derived from a star-crossed maiden who fell in love with a handsome man below her status. Since convention didn’t allow them to stay a couple, she leapt into the sea. This is a serene and beautiful place to take in.

5. Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary

Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary is Goa's largest wildlife reserve, spanning over an area of 240 square kilometres, situated 60 kilometres from Panaji. It is located close to Molem village at the foot of the Western Ghats and lies on the eastern border of the state amidst nature’s splendor. Evergreen forests and deciduous trees encompass this preserve. Herds of deer and gaurs (Indian bison), clusters of monkeys, Malayan giant squirrels, cobras and pythons can be seen in this place. One might even spot elephants and tigers. The sanctuary is also home to a few black panthers. While at the sanctuary, one must take some time off to visit the Dudhsagar waterfalls and the 13th century Mahadev Temple at Tambdi, Surla, which is just 12 kilometres away

6. Chapel of St. Catherine

The Chapel of St. Catherine situated in Old Goa stands as a living monument of the conquest of Goa by Alburquerque. At one entrance of the chapel, you will see a statue of Our Lady of Piety. There is also a beautiful altar dedicated to St. Catherine.

7. Church of St. Francis of Assisi

The Church of St. Francis of Assisi, situated in Old Goa is a 17th century masterpiece of religious art. The beautiful octagonal tabernacle richly decorated in an ornate style has two statues, one of St. Francis of Assisi and the other of Jesus on the Cross. Vows of poverty, humility and obedience of St. Francis of Assisi are written right below these two statues.

8. Shri Mahalaxmi Temple

Shri Mahalaxmi Temple is located at the Altinho foothill of Panaji and was built on contributions made by devotees in 1817. The deity is Goddess Mahalakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of Wealth, and her statue is made of black stone, with four hands and is placed in a silver canopy. The deity, originally from Mayem in Bicholim taluka, was transferred to the present site.

9. Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary

Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary is the second largest of the three wildlife sanctuaries in Goa, covering an area of 105 square kilometres. It is located at about 60 kilometres from Panaji in Canacona taluka in South Goa, nearly 3 kilometres off the Panaji-Mangalore National Highway No.17. It is covered with dense forests and varied wildlife, fauna and reptiles. The ancient Jeevottam Partagal Math, noted for Vedic studies, lies in the vicinity of the sanctuary.

10. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary

Located at the western tip of the island of Chorao, along the river Mandovi near Panaji, the sanctuary is spread over 1.78 square kilometres and is completely covered with mangrove species. Varieties of local as well as migratory birds frequently visit the area. The sanctuary is approachable by walk after crossing over by ferry from Ribandar to Chorao.

11. Shri Bodeshwar Temple

It is a small shrine dedicated to Kanakeshwar Baba or Bodgeshwar, locally known as Bongini. The God is called Agngavani i.e. to whom vows are made and who fulfills desires of the devotees. On the fulfillment of desires, people offer gifts to God as promised by them earlier. A very big fair is held in the month of December/January, when thousands of devotees flock to this temple.

12. St. Cajetan Church

St. Cajetan Church is situated in Old Goa. The amazing feature is the high vault on which the words of Christ - My House Is A House Of The Words Of Christ - are inscribed. The church has altars dedicated to the Holy Family, Our Lady Of Piety, St. Clare, St. Agnes, St. Cajetan and St. John.

13. Dudhsagar Waterfalls

The most impressive waterfalls of Goa lie on its eastern border with Karnataka. Measuring a mighty 600 metres from head to foot, the famous waterfalls at Dudhsagar, are one of the highest waterfalls in India. They are spectacular enough a sight to entice a steady stream of visitors from the coast into the rugged Western Ghats. After pouring across the Deccan plateau, the headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that splits into three streams and then cascades down a near-vertical cliff face into a deep green pool. Water plummets hundreds of feet in large volumes, forming one of the most spectacular of all natural phenomena in Goa and a lifeline of the ecosystem in one of the sanctuaries

14. Shri Damodar, Zambaulim

Shri Damodar temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated on the bank of the Kushavati River, which is said to have medicinal properties. The main festival celebrated at this temple is Holi. Lots of devotees from all over Goa join in the celebrations. This colourful event is celebrated with pomp and gaiety for several days.

15. Candolim

Candolim is a very popular beach. Its immediate hinterland gives you the quietly disciplined feel of a coastal village in Spain, which is warm, friendly and happy to mind its own business.

16. Basilica of Bom Jesus

The Basilica of Bom Jesus is situated in Old Goa. Bom Jesus means Infant Jesus or Good Jesus. Inside the basilica, you will see a beautiful display of architectural pieces in wood, stone, gold and granite. Immediately to the right is the altar of St. Anthony and to the left is a wooden statue of St. Francis Xavier. There are many ornaments, statues, works of art and much more that adorn the basilica. It is truly a visual treat to visit.

17. Chapel and Tomb of St. Francis Xavier

The Chapel and Tomb of St. Francis Xavier is a plain chapel with only one altar and is built of laterite, plastered with lime mortar and it has a tiled roof supported by wooden rafters. It is reminiscent of the simplicity of St Francis Xavier and the values he practiced.

18. Mayem Lake

Located 35 kilometres from Panaji, this artificial lake surrounded by rolling green hills is an ideal picnic spot. For those interested in a rustic Goa experience, rural Goa is more verdant than the bustling city of Panaji or Mapusa or even Margoa. Mayem Lake is a calm spread of water, home to geese and pedal boats with cottages nestled in wooden slopes. Boating is popular here. A must visit.
