A perfect getaway in the backwaters of the Chapora River is exciting and such an escape route for a few hours cruising on a houseboat will enrich your senses. Baking in the sun while you enjoy the scenic beauty is a moment worth capturing in your camera. The abundant palm trees, emerald river bank, Goan villages, fishermen doing their routine jobs and the majestic churches along with birds of different species are a sight one cannot miss and it is definitely surreal. Witnessing such beautiful birds will be a delight for an ornithologist.
The Chapora River is in North Goa and flows west in the direction of Arabian Sea. Towards the south of the river you will see the Vagator Beach and towards the north of the river you will find the Morjim Beach. During the Portuguese rule in Goa, this river was considered as the demarcation between the Portuguese Goa and India. Check out the Chapora Fort on the hills which was built in 1617. The fort is in ruins now but the view from top will leave you awestruck as you gaze at the expanse of the Arabian Sea.
The houseboat will sail west in the direction of Arabian Sea and then north towards Morjim Beach where you can take a quick swim or splash in the pristine waters. If you are lucky enough then spotting dolphins on the way will surely make your day blissful.
