Places to visit
: Bogmalo Beach, near Vasco de Gama in Goa, is a peaceful and pristine beach. This beach is famed for its leisure activities and is peppered with beach shacks and knick-knack stores. Bogmalo Beach's turquoise water and swaying palm trees make it ideal for a picnic with family or simply relaxing by the sea waves. Even during high season, Bogmalo Beach is rather uncrowded, which adds to its allure. Swimming and other water sports are encouraged by the shallow waters along the shore and the low tides of the sea. Even if there are lifeguards on the beach, swim only within the defined area.
Distance: Bogmalo Beach is 7.7 kilometres away from Mormugao
St. Andrew's Church
: St. Andrew's Church was created and constructed in 1570, and it was dedicated with pomp and circumstance. The church's original structure was later demolished by Adil Shah's forces in 1578. Since 1594, architectural fusion has resulted in the current structure. The Neo-Gothic style is the most noticeable aspect of the church's design features nowadays. The cathedral is completely white, the grottos are wonderfully kept in a gold tint, and there is a marble statue of the Lady of Fathima. On November 30th, the port town of Vasco da Gama celebrates the feast of St. Andrew, and the town rejoices and comes together to honor the patron saint of the town.

Mormugao Fort, located near Mormugao Port, a few kilometers from Vasco de Gama, is one of Goa's top coastal forts. It was built by the Portuguese in the early 17th century to guard the Margoa Port and is a renowned tourist site. The massive fort, which overlooks Varca Beach, boasts a spectacular view of the gorgeous environment and the beautiful Arabian Sea. Though the majority of the fort is now in ruins, the bastions and bulwarks still stand tall and protect the area. There are two beautiful fountains here as well: the Fonte de Malabar and the Fonte Santo Ignacio. These are thought to have come from a gold and sulfur mine. The old fort comprised massive bulwarks, prison blocks, and garrison quarters.
