Goa has more than 40 estuarine, 8 marine and about 90 riverine islands. Grand Island is about the largest marine island which is scenic and breathtaking, far out into the Arabian Sea, off the Marmagoa Harbor. As you ride the waves you’d love to spot Dolphins on the way. On arrival at Grand Island, the boat drops anchor. Then you can swim and snorkel in the clear waters, and admire the fascinating colors and underwater coral and marine life.
While out there, the “Monkey Beach” invites you for a Beach Barbeque. The rest of the day can be spent in gay abandon either sunbathing, swimming, or relaxing on this beach and soaking in complete peace that exudes from the virgin island. This trip is inclusive of beach barbeque, snacks, food, soft drinks, beer and snorkeling gear. One has to carry one’s own swimming costume and towel.
