A town steeped in romantic legend

Dona Paula is a former fishing village in North Goa. The name comes from a tragic heroine of legend, which explains why the place is still nicknamed Lovers’ Paradise. Now a town, it’s kept its tranquil vibe along with a movie-star beach that’s a real pull for watersports fans. And conveniently, it’s only 7 kilometres from the state capital, Panaji, with its winding streets and wedding-cake like churches.

A movie setting

Dona Paula’s white-sand beaches, fringed with coconut palms, have played a starring role in many a Bollywood movie. That level of fame brings with it plenty of visitors, who also come for the top-class watersports. Food shacks are dotted along the sands, and a stretch of the beach is lined with shops selling drinks, snacks and seashell trinkets.

A watersports hotspot

As lovely as Dona Paula Beach is to lie on, it’s impossible to stay still with such an impressive line-up of watersports. It goes without saying that favourites like kayaking and jet-skiing feature heavily, but it’s the more unusual skibob and water-scooters that really grab your attention.

River cruises

Dona Paula is where the Zuari and Mandovi rivers meet the Arabian Sea. This makes it a prime spot for river-boat trips. Sail by night and you’ll catch a moonlit view of the Adil Shah Palace, where steps lead up to an ornate basalt gateway – the only remains of the home of former Portuguese governors. You’ll also see the 19th-century Mae de Deus Church of Saligao beautifully illuminated in orange and yellow.


Dona Paula is only a 15 minute drive from the capital, which has an array of shops and Restaurants. The Restaurants consist of North Indian, traditional Goan, Portuguese, Italian almost all tastes are catered for. The city consists of department stools as quaint traditional markets. The river mandovi runs through it and you can take a leisurely boat cruise along it or at night the river is lit up with large boat casinos.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We purchased this property as family home, we try and take a holiday there once a year as whole a family and also at separate times with our own families. Its a lovely house which is homely, safe and decorated and furnished to a high standard. I am half Indian and live in London so I wanted the facilities i have in my home here as i do there, which i have achieved but with the luxury of a beautiful garden and a pool.

Why the Owner Chose Goa:
We bought the house as our base in India, my father is Indian and my mother is English. My father wanted a second house in India where he was born and as we had visited Goa on holiday many times, my father and the family fell in love with it, so he decided to buy there. He wanted somewhere large enough to house the whole family which includes grand children when we all visited. Therefore he found this beautiful Villa very close to a quiet family beach. The house was big enough to for a large family as it has 6 bedrooms plus it has separate private quarters for the caretaker and his wife to live. Since buying it we have developed the garden and built a pool and we update the house on a regular basis so its to a high standard so its a home away from home hence why we have satellite TV ( to watch the football) and high speed broadband in all rooms.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We fell in love with the house because it is luxurious but homely. Its large and each bedroom is large and has its own bathroom. Its in a very sought after area so is very safe and one major selling point its only a short walk to the beach. As well as being large and bright inside it has a beautiful terrace where we sit and chat at night with a glass of kingfisher. It also has beautifully kept gardens that have beautiful plants and flowers that lead down to a pool and a well in the corner. It also has a barbecue which we cook prawns and chicken on purchased from the local market. It also had large driveway and garage so we could keep a car out there. The house just ticked all the boxes on our list. Its a beautiful house in an idyllic setting with facilities close by and the beach, oh yeah and theres a swimming pool.
