Tour to the Divar Island, Goa


Entourage with Divar Island

More than a month after, when I am here to pen down my memories of the trip to one the Goa’s quaint interior islands, I am having an intuition that it would be an easy task to describe the nooks and crooks as I can still remember the trip as a picture-perfect. That’s how it mesmerized my senses and not just the eyes while visiting the Divar Island.

While we visited the Island, it felt like time was stuck there and the hulla-bulla of the outside world.

How to reach:

Divar Island is located at a distance of 10 km from Panjim. The place can be reached only by one of the three ferry services.

Ferry from Old Goa runs to the South side of the island, while the east end is connected to Naroa in the Bicholim district. There is another ferry (we took) which operates to Ribandar from the southwest of Divar.

Ferries operate frequently from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm every day.

2-wheelers and 4-wheelers are also transported in these ferries.

You may need to pay if you have the 4-wheeler, else the ferry services are free of cost.

Tip: Get a 2-wheeler rented to explore the island. There are no public transports available here.

What to see:

If in particular I have to answer this question, it will be Nothing!

Yes, go to  Divar Island to feel the charm of emptiness, the silence of nature and the peaceful fresh winds that will brush through you while you ride your 2-wheeler even at a speed of 30 kmph.

Start exploring the island without much of a purpose. I think that is the best way to go deep into the nature’s lap. Keep all the noises low to understand the presence of silence, and the meaning of tranquility.

The Divar Island calls for a long languid exploration among the crisscross of empty lanes and lush greenness. So I would keep this blog short and take you through the Photo-series now:

Driving through the island when we reached to the end of it, we found this historic and only partially remaining base of some structures.
More than those structures, the quietness of the place was more attractive.
