HolidayIQ Reviewer Subha Sreenivasan says, “Goa Anyday! Salty breeze, rich heritage, and the numerous beautiful beaches tucked away at every bend and corner make Goa a natural choice for a carefree holiday. Mobor is a tiny little, very beautiful beach in south Goa. The river Sal flows via Mobor and meets the sea and the confluence is a bird watcher's delight in the mornings. Dolphins can be spotted off the Mobor coast, an awesome sight! Of course, one can simply lounge around at the beach or watch egrets and kingfishers at Mobor with the waves humming in the background.” Read Full Review
