Pursuing Sunsets in Goa

About the Author:

Goa is a special place for Content Writer, Sheryl Gonsalves, with its picturesque beaches, gorgeous sunsets, rich heritage, and delicious food.

Each day has a magical moment. It is when the sky is splashed with different colours as the sun slowly sets. Here are some of the top places to view mesmerizing sunsets in Goa:


This one is a no-brainer. The beautiful sunsets being mirrored by the waves below is truly a breathtaking view. You can sit in the sand or have a snack at beach shacks (if they are present at the beach you visit) while watching the sun go down in style. Querim, Palolem, Betul, Arambol beaches are a few of many great places to go to.

Vagator Hill

This place is a really nice secluded spot. The climb up the hill isn’t too hard and the view on top is worth it. You’ll get to see the sunset from a high vantage point overlooking the beach. Rajbagh beach has a hilltop view as well. 


At forts, you’ll get a glimpse of history mingled with natural beauty. As some of them are at a certain height, they make great places to get beautiful sky views. I would recommend Chapora Fort, Cabo de Rama fort, and Fort Aguada. 

Suicide Point

This place, located in Dona Paula, has a sad romance fable behind it. It is said that a lady couldn’t be with her lover and so she ended her life over there. Your eyes will have a feast as this spot has an expansive view of the sea. 


Relish delicious food and a delightful view. There are many restaurants in Goa with great waterfront views. I would recommend the following places:

Uddo– Multi-cuisine restaurants with a deck facing the sea. 

Thalassa– Sunsets, waterfront views, and Greek food

Purple Martini – Casual dining with sunsets. 

Titlie – Seaview restaurant with modern Indian/ Continental food

The Southern Deck– Multi-cuisine restaurant with beautiful sunsets

The Fisherman’s Wharf (Cavelossim) – Waterfront view along with Goan fusion cuisine

Japanese Garden

This charming little garden is located in Vasco da Gama. It is a good sunset point as it gives you a view of the Grandmother’s Hole beach and tall hills. There are stairs which you can take to go down. 


Beaches are obviously the most talked about destination of Goa, but lakes are underrated. The Arambol Sweet Water Lake has calm waters at pleasant temperatures with trees around the vicinity. If you love bird watching, visit the man-made Carambolim Lake after the rainy season, until February or March. Otherwise, take a boat ride at the popular Mayem Lake and admire the sunset in the middle of the lake. Other noteworthy mentions are Raitollem Lake, Batim Lake, and Sarzora Lake. 

Amthane Dam

To reach Amthane Dam, you have to go through quiet sleepy villages. The dam itself isn’t enormous, but it’s a nice secluded place. The reflection of the sunset looks beautiful in the still water. There is a lot of greenery in the surrounding areas too.

Ferry Boat rides

You can hitch a ride on quaint ferry boats which is a form of public transportation in Goa. It can hold a number of people and vehicles as well. Try to get on them during sunset time. It is amazing to see the sky lit up with different colours while you’re in the middle of the river. There are various ferry boat points at Panjim, Old Goa, Ribandar, Chorao, and many more spots. You can also book evening cruises at the Mandovi River.

We all have experienced nature at its striking best. There are times when riding my scooter in the evening, the sky looks so beautiful, that I am compelled to stop at one side, just to admire the setting of the sun and click lots of pictures! You never know when or where you’ll get to possibly see the best sunset of your life here in Goa.
