Explore the hidden beauty of Goa's hinterland tourism through a backwater cruise on Mandovi or Zuari River. The backwaters and narrow intertidal mudflats are a beautiful biodiverse habitat for a variety of endemic and migratory birds. In Goa mangroves are confined mainly to the narrow intertidal mudflats along the banks of Mandovi, Zuari, Chapora, Sal, Tiracol, Galgibag and Cumbarjua canal. Chorao Island located in the Mandovi river is one of Goa’s best Mangrove Forests. These Mangroves are very specialised natural forest ecosystems of tropical and subtropical regions. They stabilise the shoreline and act as barriers against sea encroachment. Reconnect with nature in an eco-inspired heaven, watch waders and aquatic birds grabbing a snack. If lucky you may catch a glimpse of an Indian Mugger Crocodile
