To seek the fact behind the quote, one needs to definitely go ahead and enjoy nature only at the pearl of the orient-Goa. Before planning a trip to any place, you need to know about it.

This is the best package happening in Goa. It’s the best because, in pocket-friendly price, you can enjoy the best place of Goa. The Grande island or monkey beach trip starts in the morning. It is a daylong package which is rejuvenating as well as exhilarating. The trip starts from the jetty near coco beach. You will be taken to the destination on a boat. The Cost of this boat tour starts from Rs. 1250.

It’s not only a trip to the destination, but it’s a trip where sightseeing from the water is included. You will see so many places which look absolutely different from land. You will see Aguada fort, merchant’s bungalow, central jail and a few beaches from the mid sea. The monkey beach trip has all of it in it. You just have to book your trip and the fun follows.

Snorkeling at Monkey Beach

Grande island trip is not only about the island visit but it is about the various refreshing activities too. Once your journey starts, you will be welcomed by the lovely dolphins. Watching them twirl and twist in the blue Arabian Sea is remarkable. The feeling when we watch it can’t be described in words. The dolphin sighting is followed by snorkeling and swimming the mid sea, which is exciting watersports too.

When you almost reach your destination, your boat halts for another fun activity. Yes, the best activity of the day is fishing. You will be given a fishing rope and bait. Try your luck at fishing too. I was quite unlucky as I didn’t catch any fish, but yes on another boat, someone caught fishes twice. So, the excitement was double. And finally, after your fishing experience, you reach the beach. On the beach in the middle of the sea, you will be served the best barbeque fish/chicken/ veg along with buffet lunch. The aroma of the food is amazing. We really enjoyed our veg and non-veg Goan cuisines.

Tour Review

The journey starts at morning 8:00 to 8.30 am and continue till 3:00 – 3:30 pm. Though the timing depends on various possibilities. This Island package is a favorite of bachelors and groups. (Grand Island Photos) For couples, it is less recommended as couples might want their privacy but with a group of people around, their privacy might get hampered.

The Arabian Sea, golden sand, silver dolphins, delicious food, chilled beer and Snorkeling, this package is one in all. Make your bookings fast, book your tickets to Goa, book your hotel rooms and last but not the least, book the best and the most memorable trip to Grande island package.
