The Grand Island Trip

Ilha grande popularly known as the Grande island Or Bat Island is one of the most exotic location in Goa. The only way to reach ilha grande is by sailing on a boat. A trip package to the location includes snorkeling, fishing and a scrumptious lunch. The aroma of the barbeque fish is too magnetic. One can enjoy swimming after lunch. You will be served drinks and fruits on board. Bat island is an ideal picnic spot.  If you are lucky, you will spot dolphins twirling in their natural habitat. Alot of tour operators offer this trip at pocket friendly prices. This package is worth spending money.

About the Trip

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. If you type Grande island Goa, you will get so much of information about it but still I have jotted some points which will definitely help in your Grande Island trip.

Grande Island trip is the best package trip 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 trip price starts from Rs. 1599.

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 mid sea. The monkey beach trip has all of it in it. You just have to book your trip and the fun follows.

Things to do at Monkey Beach

Grande island trip is not only about the destination island but it is about the various refreshing activities too. Once your journey starts, you will be welcomed by the lovely dolphins. This is my favorite part of the trip. Watching the dolphins 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 mid sea, which are 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 dint 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.
