The iconic Dona Paula jetty of Goa has been reopened!

The Dona Paula Jetty has finally reopened for tourists. The locals of Goa will be able to visit it for free. However, tourists will have to pay a small charge as it is a famous spot to sightsee. The charges collected will be used for maintaining the jetty and for its upkeeping. Some will go to the government as well.

Each adult will have to pay Rs 50 and the fee for each child (above 10 and under 18 years) is Rs 25. Locals can get their free entry by showing some ID proof that displays a local address.

Work for the kiosk will start in a month’s time. The main section of the jetty has already been renovated with the Union government’s funds. State funds will renovate the rest. The reason that the jetty was shut down was because the government departments couldn’t agree on who would maintain it.
