We visited the place as our flight was delayed . It was an awesome location in Panjim . The place where the river meets the sea , One can see the Marmugoa Harbour across the creek .The wind was wild , as it was monsoon season .

Listening to local tales and myths we decided to meet Dona Paula. But to our dismay none of these tales hold any truth and there is nothing romantic about the history here. Accesing the beach was bit of a trouble, as one has to park the vehicle on the main road and walk down to the beach which is approx.... More

It’s a sort of ‘Lands-End’ at Goa and you get to see the sea almost all around. An ideal place, in Goa, to watch the sunset. While you are there you can also see the ships out in the sea and the Port at Vasco. You can enjoy some seafood at the restaurants that line the road as you walk... More

Dona Paula beach is more of a 'Point' than a beach. Unfortunately, most of it has now been taken up by street vendors. It's a lot dirtier than expected. Made famous as the place featured in the movie Singham, the effect is still there If you are going to the place, try and visit during a time of medium to... More

Did not find this place very interesting, quite possible, owing to monsoons, its a low activity area but certainly you could get few good clicks from the top of the structure standing on beach rocks. Climb few stairs and you get a very good view around. Worth a very quick visit.

The place is on the waterfront but not maintained properly.We went there after sunset and found the place was all dark and not lit properly . a lot of hawkers have setup stalls making the place dingy.
