Mobor Beach is tucked away near the southern most part of South Goa just below the popular beaches of Colva and Cavelossim. It was only in the 1980s that the area which was formerly a bare piece of land with only a few huts was subject to development and it has now been and continues to be developed and offers a clutch of five star resort style hotels.
It is essentially quiet and peaceful and the ideal spot for rest and relaxation. The resort is sited on a slim sliver of sand dunes between the Arabian Sea and the estuary of the Sal River. The beach itself extends for some 10 km of pristine sand fringed by palm and coconut trees with Mobor at one end. The vast expanse of the beach means that it offers many secluded coves and in places almost total isolation so it is great if you want to get away from it all.
For those travellers not on a package trip there are flights to the area into the nearest airport which is Goa's international airport Dabolim, some 70km away from Mobor. More international flights come into Mumbai or Delhi with an easy connection through to Dabolim. From here taxis or buses can be used to reach the resort.
The resort of Mobor Beach, as with Goa itself, is a year round destination as temperatures tend to fluctuate little from the 25-30c range. The area does experience a monsoon season from June to September so the most popular time to visit tends to be outside of these months.
At one end you will find the village of Cavelossim which has a pretty church and central square along with a number of small gift shops. Mobor Beach also has a range of handicraft and souvenir shops as well as beach side shacks offering local Goan cuisine (especially seafood e.g. fried prawns) and drinks. The area is otherwise surrounded by lush green countryside. Cavelossim offer some nightlife for those looking for something outside of the hotels in Mobor Beach itself.
The luxury accommodation means that standards are high and the facilities are superb including golf courses and tennis courts. The Kempinski Leela Palace has been nominated for the World Travel Awards 2010. Along with the peace and tranquillity first class service and a level of sophistication is available. Outside of the beach resorts there is a range of other dining options from beach side shacks serving local delicacies to more formal restaurants, indeed something for every taste and pocket.
Despite its peacefulness there are plenty of water sports on offer including jet and water skiing, windsurfing, parasailing and banana boat rides. For trips on rather than in the water there are deep sea fishing excursions and since the area attracts a lot of dolphins and porpoises viewing excursions are also a must. A river cruise is also possible which is popular with those looking to observe the area's plentiful bird life and looking to see the local bats whose wing spans can extend up to a metre! Bicycles can be easily hired for getting around the area but are also popular for riding along the firm sand on the beach.
