Sanvordem - Touristy In Proximity!


The town of Sanvordem in Goa is close to many tourist favourites like Colva beach, Salcette and Benaulim. It’s just around 6 km from Margao railway station that connects to the rest of Goa including the capital Panjim.

Caves called Rivona that are believed to have been dug out in the 6th or 7th Century are close to Sanvordem, and one must make it a point to hike down to them if they’re avid photography fans. Although very scarce, but the caves are a constant reminder of Buddhist presence in Goa. On Sundays Sanvordem turns into a major market place with roadside stalls and hawkers.

How to Reach Sanvordem

  • 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.
