You can also pamper and recharge yourself at the nearby Ayurvedic Centre. Sao Jacinto Island is a beautiful, small island with old houses and a lovely chapel. It is in the Mormugao Bay, 5km from Bogmalo, off the Panaji-Vasco Highway.
Remains of a wrecked ship lie off Grande Island, which is the main site for diving. Issorcim is a small beach less than 2km from Bogmalo beach. For anglers, it’s an ideal place, being almost deserted, except for a few villagers. To reach here, you have to take a left turn from the road which forks 1.5km before you reach Bogmalo.
There are a few beach shacks, which have seafood and Continental dishes on their menu. More expensive options are also available. There are a few decent options to stay in Bogmalo but most of them have been given over to charter companies to host their clients.
You can indulge in windsurfing, diving and jet skiing. This place is the venue for two Enterprise class sailing championships significantly; Bogmalo is one of the few places in the country where you can learn scuba diving from a PADI-approved diving school. Trekking from Bogmalo to Hollant is a good option as one gets a memorable view of the Mormugao coast.
