Bogmalo - To Have Fun In The Sun


Bang in the centre of Goa and very close to the bustling town of Vasco da Gama is Bogmalo Beach, with a view to die for, a well-rounded cosmopolitan crowd and loads of fun activities and water sports. What’s striking about Bogmalo Beach is the proximity it shares with Vasco and the airport.

One can enjoy a morning and half the afternoon at the beach and still manage to squeeze a trip to the Naval Aviation Museum, visit some of the other beaches around the place, take a ferry or boat ride to Dona Paula or just head over to the Bogmalo Beach, enjoy the sunset over some Goan food and wine.

Bogmalo also has several shacks one can visit and the street shopping around the beach is crazy! One of the first diving and scuba centres has opened close to Bogmalo, and many tourists are now venturing into this relatively new sport in Goa. For the experienced diver, this offers a chance to go scuba diving at one of India’s first centres on the west coast.

The Naval Aviation Museum is just a stone's throw away and offers a beautiful narration of the history of Indian Naval Aviation and its evolution over the years. This beach is clean enough to go swimming in during the season and lifeguards are posted on the beach all day.

Getting to Bogmalo is a breeze. Being just around 5 km from the airport, hailing a cab is not an issue and one can choose to ride down from the hotel on a rented bike. Feeling adventurous, experience Vasco Da Gama on foot and you’ll eventually get to Bogmalo. Bogmalo Beach is also close to Vasco Da Gama and Dabolim railway stations.

How to Reach Bogmalo

  • By Road
    Goa can be accessed from Mumbai via the famous Mumbai � Goa highway or National Highway 17 which links Mumbai straight to Goa. Off late though, this route has fallen into disrepute on accord of there just being 2 lanes all along, one up and one down which not only is a little dangerous but also makes for a longer journey. The more convenient route is to head to Pune from Mumbai via the 8 lane expressway and then connect up to the Satara highway right till one gets to Sawantwadi on the far end of Maharashtra. Goa is just another few minutes from there. From Mumbai, Pune and other cities in Maharashtra, numerous bus services are available to Goa and very comfortable ones at that. The recommended kind to take is any service operating a low floor Volvo semi sleeper.
