Head to your homestay at Divar island. Meet your lovely hosts and put your bags down at a cozy homestay. After freshening up head to check out hill top church and temple for a beautiful view of the island. Next set out to take part in Carnival at Panjim. Flaunt your masks and dance to the foot tapping music at Carnival. Explore Panjim City, Miramar and Dona Paula Beaches.
After breakfast head towards Old goa, for a visit to Basilica of Bom Jesus church. Famous throughout the Roman Catholic world, it contains the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier, the so-called Apostle of the Indies. Next make a move to Majorda beach down south. Stare at sea birds wheeling over empty stretches of sand; join the solitary swimmers and strike out to sea; indulge in a seafood lunch, a cool lime soda or a hot, sweet glass of chai served at occasional palm-thatched beach shacks.
Surrounded by marshy waters and crisscrossed with sleepy single-lane roads, colorful Portuguese houses, the island makes for lovely, languid exploration. Go for a guided nature walk through the island sighting birds or if time permits catch a ‘crocs on the rocks’ boat to sight some crocodiles around.
