Bogmalo Info

  • State: Goa
  • Famous for/as: Beach
  • District: South Goa
Bogmalo is a small beach-side village, situated at the top of South Goa in Bogmalo Bay. Located at 15 22' 11? N latitude and 73 50' 1 E longitude, the beach is situated 18 km from Dabolim Airport and at a distance of 9 km from the port town of Vasco da Gama. It is owing to such location almost exactly halfway along Goa's coast that Bogmalo serves as an ideal base for exploring the state. Half a kilometre long, this beach is characteristic of swaying coconut palms and soft sand.

The beach was initially just a fishing village until tourists started pouring in, attracted towards the simple beauty of the arena. As tourism started catching up in the small state of Goa, a number of luxury resorts, multicuisine restaurants and hi-tech shops selling handicrafts were set up at the Bogmalo beach. However, it was after Oberoi Group started managing a property, right on the sea, built by Trade Wings that Bogmalo became one of the most sought after beaches in Goa.

Beyond the building of Oberoi Hotel, several smaller islands and shipwrecks in the silt can be witnessed. At low tide, tourists can wade towards the far end of the beach that houses a little creek with a fishing hamlet located close by. A blend of serenity and modernism, Bogmalo is also a magnet for sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts with its sheltered position and calm waters. The most popular activity amongst tourists, particularly Europeans, is sun bathing.

"Relaxing!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 7, 2016
This is a beach located in Vasco city of Goa. Its a nice place to hangout with friends. We visited Goa in rainy season in the month of July. If you are visiting Goa in rainy season, make sure that you have umbrella and raincoat as it rains 24 hrs in rainy season. This will make your trip a lot easier. For food lovers this is not a good place as food are costlier here when compared to any city in India and also the taste of food is not up to the mark.

"If season hai boss... minimize your loss"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 5, 2016
Why are taxi fares so high?
Why no budget accommodation available?
Why it is so humongously crowded?
Why are two wheelers being rented at resale prices?
For all these and many more such questions you always find just one answer 'Season hai na boss'.

When we reached Vasco station on 25th December. We then dodged it partially by choosing to stay at Bogmollo Beach near city Vasco Da Gama. Just across the railway station in Vasco, you will find bus stand which will take you straight to Bogmollo Beach at a nominal charge. You will be greeted by a small market, few home stays and Voila the beach. The beach is as good as any other beaches of Goa minus the crowd and limelight. So we took all the liberty to get drunk and lie on beach till wee hours. Not a single soul bothered me or female friends with me. Chilling breeze, stars and crashing sound of waves kept us company throughout the night. A couple of food joints were open till late night. At the right moment between being drunk and passing out we headed back to our home stay which was at stone throw distance from the beach. Overall we managed cost cutting by travelling in public buses, halting at not so famous but beautiful beach and off course cheaper alcohol.
