Bogmalo Beach
Bogmalo appeals mainly to package tourists and enjoys some popularity as a conference venue. In terms of accommodation there are some modest properties close to the beachfront in the resort centre. A few properties inland and in the town of Vasco da Gama (5 mls NW). There is one large beachfront hotel offering a variety of facilities, including a casino and bars. The beach is also a popular attraction to the area, with a broad section of light, compacted sand in a sheltered, S-facing cove backed by green hills, which hide the industrial estates beyond. The beach is relatively safe for swimming. Popular activities include relaxing on the quiet beach; scuba diving and lessons (one of the few places in India where one can do PADI-approved open-water diving courses). A few water sports; trips to nearby islands. Marine, aviation and war history enthusiasts can head to the Naval Maritime Museum, 1 mile.
The nightlife offers a few low-key bars close to the beachfront, plus hotel-based options, many of which offer evening entertainment (live music, dancing and karaoke), mainly during high season (October-April); one with casino.
