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.

Dona Paula beach is about 3-4 miles from Panaji. The Bay of Dona Paula is where two of Goa's rivers, the Zuari and the Mandovi, meet the Arabian Sea.

This is a jetty, not a beach. But worth visiting. We visited in monsoon and water flow seemed to be quite rough.

It's amazing!!! Though the meeting point of the two rivers mandovi and zuari is little far from the rocky structure it seems like walking on the sea itself! The sunset was jst mesmerising!!! The rocky structures have a lot of history to be told and are quite enchanting with the amazing backdrop... jst loved it...

Dona Paula is frequented by many for the much awaited jet ski ride at the promenade. These guys are absolute thrill demons....they can put a James Bond chase to shame, no jokes here! At Rs 200, take a super fast 5 minute round of the harbour and you will wonder how did you get back to where you began?! The... More
