Bogmalo Beach, Vasco da Gama

3.7
#29 of 63 in Beaches in Goa
Sheltered in a small bay, Bogmalo Beach offers a calm retreat and great swimming opportunities. Gently sloping into long clear shallows, the beach boasts some 1.5 km (1 mi) of curving white sand under palm tree shades. This small calm and serene beach is set next to a small fishing village but good large hotels in the vicinity providing all amenities. Beach shacks selling seafood and drinks. Water sport activities such as windsurfing, water skiing and ski-jet are available. Take a boat ride and go dolphin spotting. Due to vicinity of major attractions, this is a good base to explore the area. Put Bogmalo Beach into our Goa trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
