Must visit to see the waterways and ferries which you can use to criss cross from one river island to the other. Beautiful Goan homes and trees and quiet streets, an interesting way to see Goa.

So wonderful to get for a ride after crossing with ferry inside local villages. We looked at the sunset from the Jesus's statue, overlooking at water flow information,clouds passing by and silence everywhere. Not interesting if you look for adrenaline rush... Interesting for soul searching.
