Escape to Divar Island - Central Goa

Overview

Cross over the Mandovi River and enjoy an adventure that showcases another avatar of Goa's magnetic appeal. Welcome to laidback, lesser-visited Divar Island and its many enchantments and splendid vistas in North Goa. Enjoy immersive slow travel at its finest on this lovely riverine island, not too far away from the state capital Panjim – but another world altogether. Riding through paddy fields, past ancient mangroves,  exploring old temple sites, beautiful houses, sweeping past old fishing settlements on the island…there's definitely a different flavour to that on the mainland.

Why you will love it

  • E-biking experience on the beautiful winding roads of Divar Island.
  • One of the finest baroque churches of Goa with a 360-degree panoramic view.
  • A mystical temple site dating back to over 1000 years.
  • Insights into traditional occupations like fishing and learn more about sluice gates.

What you will experience

We depart from our hub at Old Goa and take a ferry ride on the Mandovi to Divar Island. Hopping on to terra firma we head for the fisherman’s hut which offers splendid views of Old Goa. Spiritual Goa has always been a huge draw for visitors and on the island, we are going to explore a mystical temple site and then move on to savour the beauty of one of the finest baroque churches of Goa. The island has some impressive Portuguese architecture. Our ride takes us through pretty fields and lush mangroves, where one might chance upon the fisherfolk using the traditional fishing methods for their catch of the day. Its lush natural surrounds and tranquil countryside make it a popular haunt for birdwatchers.
