If you want to check out the flora and fauna of Goa, then this park along with Mollem National Park are simply awesome. In the latter, you will be able to sight reptiles and many other creatures. And in the sanctuary, you can actually see sloth bears, gaurs and leopards. Do not miss the Tambdi Surla Temple.

If you find crocodiles to be a mystery, catch a ferry and go to this canal. The narrow creek is Goa’s best kept secret. The thick mangroves and the muddy waters will be a first in Goa.

We are talking of an organic garden here, which is devoid of any harmful fertilizers and pesticides. You must sign up for a guided tour here, as the guides will be more than willing to share Goa’s history with you. If you want to see the real Goa, head here. They also have a feni distillation plant on campus.

The pond in Sanguem Taluka is the local symbol of pride. You just need to clap your hands near the pond and you will see bubbles rise to the surface. At the bottom of this pond, there is an accumulation of methane gas that keeps rising to the surface.
