Japanese Beach, Headland Sada, Vasco da Gama

Japanese Beach, Headland Sada, Vasco da Gama (Goa, India)

I inquire about anything else to tour while touring Vasco (just visited Naval Aviation Museum).

The reply: Japanese beach and Pilot Point.

Where is it?

One is at Headland Sada and another close by – Mormugao harbor and was directed how to visit it.

Vasco railway station – Vasco railway bridge – left-turn towards Biana Beach – right-turn towards Headland Sada or MPT. Turn right if you wanna visit the Japanese beach or if not sure, ask for Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) colony – The exact location.

Very soon I was there.

Japanese beach is at Headland Sada, Vasco da Gama in Mormugao taluka of South Goa district in Goa.

The beautiful garden on top and the view I felt as equal as an eagle’s eyes. Watching the Arabian Sea as far as I can. And then down towards the beach – 225 approx. steps. Durga temple in the middle of the stairs I decided to pray and sit to watch waves. Almost a silent beach. Bath or Swimming is not allowed strictly as there are a few incidents of drowning as said by the temple priest during discussions. The temple is more than 20 years old. I sat in the temple area under the shade of a coconut tree. 40 minutes nap with the permission of the priest – far far away from materialistic thoughts – few islands visible – not too far. They say one can reach those islands, and one is maybe Bat island but not sure to date.

And then I decide to ride towards Pilot Point, which is about 1 km approx.

fantastic it is. I requested two glasses of sugarcane juice. Sipping and watching. – Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful – said I.

But the question till-date within is: Why the beach is called the Japanese beach? Any specific reason? Maybe. Does anybody – have any answer?
