This place is located close to Miramar beach in Panaji and can be covered as a tourist place if one is visiting Panaji in Goa. Lanes leading to this place are narrow and our car got stuck in traffic due to some road renovation work at that time. This place has a nice promenade right into the sea and there... More

Choose the evening time and experience the breeze here which is very nice and soothing. Not too far away from the miramar beach in Panaji, a steep road to park the vehicles and walk down to the spot (Have to climb up the steep road when returning). This is more of a viewpoint and a place to experience a nice... More

nothing special about this place, other than the fact that a single scene of Singham was shot over here. But if you are planning to be in Panjim ofr a day, than its a good place to visit.

A picturesque location where you can see teh north and south of goa converge and a couple of big cargo ships sailing out of Mormogoa harbour. It is often a site for film shootings, latest being Ajay Devgan's Singham. The approach road is a single lane and one has to park much ahead and walk the distance through a flea... More

Thanks to the completely dug-up state of the road to the jetty, and the rather unimpressive look of the place, my impressions about the place, despite it's apparent attractions in the form of water-scooter etc., are not good. But that's personal, and shouldn't deter you.

always amazed to see this place after seeing the old hindi movie 'ek duuje ke liye' starring Kamal Hasan and Rati Agnihotri and its story of a Portuguese Viceroy’s daughter Dona Paula de Menezes, jumping off the cliff because of her unaccepted love with a local fisherman. Great place if you are in love!! and if you like haunting mysteries!!

The view of the bay is awesome and the structure reminds one of the places- Erectheion, near Akropolis in Athens, Greece. A lover's Paradise and a smooth outing for families too. Situated close to Panaji. We enjoyed nice Kala katta and fresh lime.
