Japanese Beach, Headland Sada, Vasco da Gama, Goa

I inquire 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.

Vasco railway station – Vasco railway bridge – left-turn towards Biana Beach – right-turn towards Headland Sada or MPT. Turn right if you wanna visit 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 eagle’s eyes. Watching 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 to sit to watch waves. Almost silent beach. Bath or Swimming is not allowed strictly as there are few incidents of drowning as said by temple priest during discussions. The temple is more than 20 years old. I sat within the temple-area under the shades of coconut tree. 40 minutes nap with the permission of the priest – far far away from materialistic thoughts – few island visible – not too far. They say one can reach those island and one is maybe Bat island but not sure till-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: Why the beach is called Japanese beach? Any specific reason? Maybe. Anybody – any answer?
