How to get there
The beach is 4km from Dabolim Airport, and 10km southeast of Vasco, rather close to the airport. The crowded bus services between Bogmalo and Vasco da Gama are an option, if you don't mind crowds. Taxis are also available.
If you are through with your share of sun and sand, you can venture out to enjoy the surroundings. You can go for fishing, trekking or indulge in water sports. 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.
Healing touch: Just across the Bogmalo is an Ayurvedic Centre, Sree Sankara Ayurvedic Centre. It is a worth visit.
You can indulge in windsurfing, diving and jet skiing. This place is the venue for two Enterprise class sailing championships significantly; Bogmalo beach 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.
Bogmolo Beach is safe for swimming. But you should not swim further than waist-deep water except where there are lifeguards.
There are a few beach shacks, which have seafood and Continental dishes on their menu. More expensive options are also available.
