Hollant is a tiny cove round the corner from Bogmalo and just off Goa’s longest beach – 26km – from nearby Velsao to Mobor. The cove has sheltered water, and the boat can go right to the shore, where you can get off in ankle deep water. Hollant also has an excellent restaurant and rooms to stay. Start from Dona Paula mid-morning and reach Hollant by mid-afternoon, after sailing past Vasco’s Baina Beach, Pequeno Island, Dabolim Airport and Bogmalo Beach.
Have fun on the beach, visit Velsao Beach or simply splash in the fresh water pool at the side of the beach. Lunch at the Copa Cabana Bar and Restaurant. Return by motoring. If you wish, spend the night in your chosen accommodations and return by road at your own expense.
You need to book at least 48 hours in advance.

Our sailing boats are powered only by the wind. There’s no irritating throb of an engine, just the sound of the wind in the sails and the waves splashing. Sailing is relaxed and peaceful. There’s no need for speed. We go at
the pace of the wind (which, sometimes though, can be quite fast).
We offer two types of sailing boats:
(1) Seabird: Fast, 21-ft open gunther-rigged sailing boats with no cabin and no toilet. Capacity: 4
(2) Mini Cabin Cruiser: Somewhat slower 18-ft bermuda-rigged sailing boats with a cuddy cabin and marine toilet. Capacity: 4
These boats are equipped with life jackets for safety, have outboard motors (for use only in emergencies) and are handled by experienced and competent skippers. We operate out of Dona Paula, 8km from the Panaji Bus Stand.
