Agonda Estuary Moments, South Goa

The internal coastal roads from Palolem Beach to Madgaon make for a great coastal ride. These roads take you through thick forests and mangrove tracts and over calm rivers that join the Arabian Sea close by. And then you also get sneak peaks and panoramic views of the splendid ocean right from the highway.

I was on this very highway, riding from Palolem to Madgaon, when I stopped over the Agonda River bridge. It is here that you can see the river meet the sea close by. In fact, the estuary makes for a great setting with the hills in the background and a curved entrance into the sea.

On the other side of the bridge, the river is surrounded by mangroves, evergreen trees and coconut plantations making for a splendid setting. And in this view, we could also see a lot of fisherman boats either moored on the river or docked on the river banks and these boats added a great deal of colour to the entire location.

I was lucky to see this estuary and river view at different times of the day and each time it wore a different colour and depicted a different mood. The soft orange hues on the water during sunset is my personal favourite.
