easy approach. search fr ferry ride to divar island on google map. there are couple of entry points ..we too our rented car to old goa n went in ferry which are frequent service at a nominal cost . once inside the island stroll, see the church ,can have chilled beer at small little local shops run ob owners of house there. u can also use the service of experiential tour curators called 'make it happen'....look up Murli on net for a curated experience with high tea there .can spent half a day . not too many eating joints , so plan to eat in panaji and arounds . a must visit while in Goa

Had a very bad experience. Need to bring your vehicle here. We thought there would be transportation to go inside island but disappointed and we were waiting for more than 1.5 hours there was no sign of bus, so we returned back in the ship we traveled to the island

Divar island part of old Goa has an authentic charm not much changed since the 16th century. its a place for serene calm, raw beauty. Sadly the state or India doesn't know how to display history. While Europe portrays its history of WW2 which is 80 years old, we don't know to showcase whats 450 years old.

Hidden Treasure of Goa A Great Experience With Soul Travelling... My 8th Trail With Soul Travelling... It's a must! You just have to experience this peace filled beautiful lil island away from the the bustle of mainland life. It is True blue green colourful nature at its best with beautiful old Portuguese homes standing amongst the garden.It indeed takes your breath away and shows you the freshness of life. The approach to this place is only by a jetty which carries you and your car to the other side. Amazing Experience. Mr. Newton (Son Of Divar) Was So Proud To Show Us His Beautiful Village,Full Of Information And So Much Of Fun Loving At The Same Time Leroy Was So Fun Loving And Shared Some Of His Experiences Too With Us... Warm Regards Lucky Rai Chand Malhotra
