Goa's grande island with its vibrant water sports is your escape into the blue!

We wonder if you can control yourself from checking out customized tours, after reading this!

If you are on a run for experiences that come with pumped-up adrenaline, while in Goa, we have something cool right here for you! Grande Island is one such exotic place that has evolved as a hub for the most exciting kinds of watersports. From snorkelling to scuba diving, the island is a storehouse for power-packed experiences. Given the number of attractions that this spectacular island offers, special tours are offered to the Grande by a lot of travel companies.

An enthralling magnet for all craving stimulating water sports

Originally called Ilha Grande, this picturesque island is known for its boat rides and dolphin sightseeing tours as much as it is known for its adventurous water sport activities. Constituting the highlights, snorkelling and scuba diving deliver one of the most treasured memories for the tourists. Believe it or not, but this place feels like a personalised location for turning the best of your dreams in reality.

With the vast stretch of the coral reef in its vicinity, the island waters become a perfect spot for snorkelling. Additionally, scuba diving in the adjoining areas of Grande is an equally vitalising venture at the island. If you are a true lover of nature, we are sure that the exotic sights of the underwater ecosystem will win your heart in a moment. And, if you are looking for relatively calmer experiences, the island has a lot for you too. From twirling dolphins to an engaging fishing trail to the playful activities at the monkey beach, you can enjoy yourself in a number of ways here!

All you need to know for your trip-

The trip to Grande is essentially a refreshing escapade. Your stroll on the island can be a day-long or half-a-day schedule. There is no way to reach the island other than a boat ride and we wonder, if the ride to the island may end up being one of the best of all your moments on this adventure. Located close to the Baina Beach of Vasco Da Gama, the island can be traversed to via a jetty or a ferry. While the island is frequented by tourists throughout the year, you may hop over to this beautiful place during the months of October to April for a comparatively enhanced experience. Swimmer or not, as you may be, do not forget your swimsuit for the magic of the ocean may attract you its arms any time.

Knock Knock

It is not every day that you get a chance to spot dancing dolphins while on a ferry ride coupled with some of the most action-packed activities when you reach your destination. Even if you are not somebody who rejoices water sports, the scenic landscape and the serene surroundings surely guarantee an experience of a lifetime. Needless to say but your trip to goa is definitely incomplete if your itinerary does not include Grande Island.
