How to Reach the Mobor Beach
Dabolim is the nearest airport which is 68 kilometers from the beach. Karmali is the closest railway station . You can get taxis from the airport and the railway station to reach the beach. You can also reach Colva Beach first and then drive to Mobor Beach.
While in Goa, when travelling to visit beaches and forts and other tourist attractions, a better idea is to hire tourist cabs in Goa or be part of conducted tours that is organized by travel and tour operators.
Beaches are the key attraction in Goa. We are planning another vacation in Goa next week, which is our 3rd trip to this land of beaches. I never visited Mobor beach till now but this time I will make sure I will cover this place as well.
