Looking At Beauty !

Looking at beauty in the world, is the first step of purifying the mind, and Bambolim caters to that. Centrally located in Goa, Bambolim makes an ideal base for those wishing to travel around Goa, isolated and quite, and yet just 7 kms from Panjim and close to the main sightseeing places in Goa, an extreme right hand side road from Dona Paula Square, via Goa University leads to the destination, that road seems to be little on high land. The swaying palms, the soothing sound of the sea mingling with the singing of birds give you a perfect impression of what life in Goa is all about. Bambolim is a census town in North Goa district in the state of Goa, India. The only allopathic medical college in the state of Goa, Goa Medical College, is located here. Pin code of Bambolim is 403202. Bambolim Indian post office is located in Bambolim, Tiswadi, Goa, North Goa. North Goa is one of the famous district in GOA state. Bombolim is surrounded by Dona Paula, Siridao, Maina and Goa Velha which has the famous football club. Expressing about Bambolim is just as Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent. All fresh fruits and vegetables are coming from the surrounding villages. Now it is a modern and peaceful township as Aldene de Goa's Sea Side Hill Station, Ocean Park, Goa University's campus and now many developers and builders are attracted by this lovely place. The beach, The temple which is situated very close to the Dona Paula, Famous Dona-Paula, Raj Bhawan, Miramar, The heritage Portuguese capital old Goa. No doubt Grand Hayat could find the place most suitable, Bambolim Beach resort and their own restaurants and cafe, row houses, Altinho Hill, Fotainhas, Velha Lake, Sao Jacinto Island, Church Square etc. Restaurant near the beach Chulha for Indian Cuisine, Verandah for sea food, Capiz for Chinese, The Dining Room is a multi cuisine restaurant, Pool Bar And Grill, Niyaaz famous for its Dum Biryani, etc. Beach life remains more attractive for me and travelling to the places of attractions as the beach is not having any sports activities, but time is well spent. From Kadamba Bus Stand, Panji is connected to the Mumbai, Bangalore, Belgaum, Pune, by State Transport and Private Bus Operator and they offer the best sevice. By rail it is connected from every part of the nation through Madgao, Vasco and Tivim Railway Stations, and by Air via Vasco. As the climate is always warm so just summer casual are enough and all utilities are provided in the Hotels where you stay. As Hayat and Bambolim Beach resorts are the pride. This place will surely double the joy of one's vacations or holidays, as we love the things we love for what they are.

Had a great beach visit

It was a once in a life time experience. It was awesome place with lots and lots of beaches and by beaches, I meant beautiful beaches. The sunset at the beach was just heaven on earth. The food back there was good. The rooms in the hotel were clean and as they should overall it was a nice holiday spent in Goa.

Bambolim Overview

Bambolim is a coastal village located in the Tiswadi Taluk of North Goa District of Goa. Bambolim is a lesser-crowded beach retreat of Goa, when compared to its popular counterparts, Colva and Calangute beaches.

The village of Bambolim is situated at the mouth of River Zuari or Aghanashani, the largest river in Goa, which originates at Hemad-Barshem of the Western Ghats. According to historical records, the village of Bambolim was one of the thirty settlements of the Goud Saraswat Brahmins at Tiswadi region, when they migrated to Goa. Bambolim witnessed the rule of many dynasties through ages which have left deep imprints in the culture and traditions of the people.

The various dynasties which influenced the culture and traditions of Bambolim are Bhojas of Chandrapur, Satavahanas, Kshatrapa Dynasty, Abhira Dynasty, Kadambas, Chalukyas, Shilaharas, etc. In the 14th century Bambolim became a part of the Vijayanagara Kingdom.

In 1469 it fell in to the hands of the Bahmani sultans of Gulbarga. Later, Bambolim came under the Adil Shahi Sultanate when they conquered Goa in the 15th century. Bambolim came under Portuguese rule in the year 1510, when they seized Tiswadi Taluk from Adil Shahis.

Bambolim remained under the Portuguese until 1961, when it was annexed by India with ‘Operation Vijay’. From being a small residential village, Bambolim, today, has become a tourists’ village with developed infrastructure, mainly due to its proximity to Panaji and the port city of Vasco da Gama.

The economy of Bambolim village is primarily driven by tourism. Agriculture and fishing also play a major role in the economic development of the region. Konkani is the official language of Bambolim. Languages like Marathi, Kannada, English, Hindi and Portuguese are also used in Bambolim.

Bambolim village is famous in North Goa for its secluded Bambolim Beach. The pristine sands of Bambolim Beach can only be accessed along the hill in between Goa Medical College and Goa University. In Bambolim, activities such as beach volley ball, para sailing, jet skiing, scuba diving, etc. can be done.

Bambolim, situated in the vicinity of Dona Paula Beach at a distance of 7 km from the state capital of Panaji (Panjim), can be easily reached by road as it lies along the Panaji - Vasco route to the Panaji Airport. December to February is the peak tourist season in Bambolim.
