Visit Vasco da Gama

Vasco da Gama, though it is often simply called “Vasco,” is located on the Mormugao Peninsula in the Indian state of Goa. Founded in 1543 and named after the Portuguese explorer who is credited with first searching the area, this city was in Portuguese hands until 1961. Its port has been part of one of the busiest shipping routes in Asia since 1888 and this has encouraged a unique multicultural environment to visit.

One of the most popular beaches in India is just 8 kilometers from Vasco. Bogmalo Beach might be great for a sunny day, but it isn’t good for swimming. The surrounding waters have very dangerous undercurrents that are difficult to manage. If you want to get into the water, Baina and Issorcim are smaller, but safer beaches to explore.

Many visitors to Vasco da Gama tend to use the city as a stopping point or a base of operations for their exploration of India. For starters, Goa has six unique wildlife sanctuaries that all offer something unique to experience. You can also explore the 240 square mile Mollem National Park, located along the Western Ghats. Grab a guide, rent a jeep, and there are amazing experiences to be had in the forests that surround Vasco.

If you prefer to stay in the city, there are often concerts and festivals scheduled to enjoy. There are a couple museums to tour as well, including one of just three national aviation museums in India.

Beaches might draw visitors to Vasco da Gama, but there is much more to explore. Find your way to this beautiful city and you’ll be thankful that you brought a pair of comfortable shoes.
