Things to do / beach activities in Dona Paula Beach , Goa India

At the end of the bay there is a beautiful islet-hillock. From the top of this hillock one can have views of the Marmagao harbour and the Arabian Sea up to the Zuari Bridge to the east. At the base there is a carved sculpture named ' Image of India' depicting a couple - a man facing west representing the future and a woman facing east representing the future- made by Baroness Yrsa von Leistner. But the folklore linked to the statues, often mistakenly says that these are the lovers in the Dona Paula legend. From here, one can see the Arabian Sea and the River Zuari. 

Edged with palms and vast stretches of casurina groves, the beautiful beach offers its visitors a most relaxing holiday option facilitating sunbathing, swimming, water sports, a major attraction. At Dona Paula Beach, one can enjoy water sports like water scooter racing, motorboat riding, windsurfing, para sailing, water-skiing, skibob, sports fishing, snorkeling, harpoon fishing, kayaking and yachting.
