This itinerary is for those looking for an up close and personal experience of Goa’s beautiful backwaters. Very rarely do tourists venture inland to discover Goa’s hinterland rich in varied flora and fauna. The mangrove-lined banks of the River Mandovi, between Charao and Divar Islands, gives you a perfect glimpse of the lush vegetation, exotic variety of birds and if you are lucky, spot some crocodiles sunbathing on the banks of the river.
- Sailing on a sail yacht in the backwaters.
- Swimming in the cool waters of the river.
- Kayaking among mangroves.
- River Fishing.
- Accommodation in Anjuna’s top boutique hotel.
