Vasco - Know before you go
Vasco da Gama is a very neat & clean coastal town. Popularly known as Vasco, this town was originally called Sambhaji. Imposing huge buildings and a church dominates the city centre here. Close to Marmagoa Harbour and 3 km from Dabolim airport, Vasco-Da-Gama is the junction of the railway lines into Goa. The town was named after the legendary Portuguese explorer and Goa's former Viceroy, Dom Vasco da Gama. It lies on the western tip of the Mormugao peninsula overlooking the mouth of the Zuari river. This area came under Portuguese rule in 1543 and for a long time was a very busy port.

Major Attraction
Vasco-da-GamSome of the major attractions of Vasco are :

Bogmolo Beach
The sandy beach at the end of the cave would be even more picturesque were it not for the monstrous multi-storey edifice perched above it. Until Oberoi erected a huge five star hotel here, Bogmalo was just another small fishing village, hemmed in by a pair of palm fringed headlands at the northern end of Colva bay.

The Naval Aviation Museum
Inaugrated in 1998 at Dabolim is the first naval museum in Asia. The museum showcases the history of Indian Naval Aviation, various aircrafts, weapons, sensors, safety equipment, rare photographs depicting Goa's liberation and artifacts (also spelt as artefacts). A multimedia games section is an added attraction. Situated in the picturesque backdrop of the Bogmalo beach, the museum has become a must-visit place for all tourists.
