Experience the rich cultural heritage of Divar in our Divar Island Tour

Catch a ferry and cross the Mandovi River to Divar Island. Experience a gem of old world charm, paddy fields, ancient temples, pretty churches, hidden caves, small houses and winding roads in our Divar Island Tour. As you enter the island, youll find locals sitting with their fishing rods in hope of making a catch in the Mandovi river. The tops of hillocks on the island gives you a lovely view of the river. Divar Island is so blissfully green and tranquil that youre enticed to slip into a peaceful meditation. All these make for an ideal Goa village tour. Come, take back a slice of life of Goa with you.

In our Divar Island Tour, youll also notice a rainbow of houses. You will drive around the brightly painted houses in reminiscence of the Portugese times. Divar is the second largest island of the seven islands which are situated in the Mandovi River, the largest being Charao Island. The island is roughly 6km long by 3km wide and it is connected by four ferry services. The island is a perfect choice for cycling in Goa. Though the Konkan railway line actually runs across the island, the trains do not stop! With a modest population of only 5000 residents, its quaint charm will draw you right in, wishing the train would stop!

Hindu pilgrims used to make the journey from distant lands to visit the many temples on the island. This was before the Portuguese converted the population to Christianity in the 16th century. On our guided Divar Island Tour you get to visit some of the interesting places on the island and understand a little more of its historical, social and cultural heritage.

Highlights:

A guided tour by a friendly local tour presenter.
Visit one the finest Baroque churches in Goa.
Visit some of the ancient temple sites.
 Traditional Goan meal prepared and served by a Goan family
Insight into traditional fishing methods that are still practices.
