Places to visit

  • Tambdi Surla : The Mahadev Temple is also known as Tambdi Surla. Tambdi Surla is a Lord Shiva-focused Shaivite temple from the 12th century. The temple, which is made completely of black basalt and is one of the oldest in Goa, is incredibly beautiful architecturally. A magnificent Shiva linga and a headless bull idol can be found in the inner sanctuary. Additionally, the River Surla flanks the temple, which enhances the area's charm and natural beauty.

  • Dudhsagar Falls : The Dudhsagar Falls, one of India's tallest waterfalls, is situated in the Mollem National Park. On the boundary of Goa and Karnataka, around 60 miles from Panaji, lie the magnificent falls. The Mollem National Park has the Dudhsagar Falls, which are known by their literal name, "Sea of Milke". The 310-meter-high "Sea of Milk" waterfall on the Mandovi River is divided into four tiers and resembles a thick rush of milk flowing gently down the hill.

  • Talpona River : One of Goa's few beaches that aren’t crowded with visitors is this one. Pure golden sands cover the beach's kilometer-long shoreline, which is bordered by swaying palm and pine trees. People seeking complete seclusion and tranquility should visit this beach. Talpona Beach doesn't offer many opportunities for beachside entertainment because it only recently becomes accessible to tourists. One can see where the Talpona River and the Arabian Sea meet to the north of Talpona Beach. By the Talpona River, a number of different bird species can be observed relaxing. Talpona Beach is quite a natural wonderland because it is surrounded by woodlands on all sides but the sea.
  • Distance: Talpona Beach is 63 kilometers away from Sancoale

How to Reach

  • By Air- Margao is 21 kilometers from Dabolim Airport, the closest airport.
  • By Train- Due to its location at the confluence of the Konkan Railway and the South Western Railway, Madgaon Railway Station is Goa's largest and busiest station. Every train halts at Margao. As a result, many people utilize it more frequently as a transit point than as a tourist site on their route to Benaulim and Colva, two popular tourist spots that are around six kilometers distant.
