Vengurla's Lighthouse

It is human to look out for identifiable signs when out on an excursion and the need remains even when the fishermen folks venture out in the sea.

The guiding force of a magnificent tower, the Vengurla Lighthouse located on a hill that stands tall above the jetty is hard to miss. The path to the Lighthouse, is through a long winding path of foliage and greenery.

The Lighthouse and staff quarters are perched right on the top of the hill. The flat plateau on the top of the hill provides a memorable view of the shore and beach below. It is awe inspiring to see the vast stretch of sea spread before you.

Vengurla's Jetty

The town of Vengurla used to be one of the busiest ports of the Western shores of the country. Times have changed and so have the fortunes of this once bustling port which now stands a mute spectator amidst the ruins of the old port.

The jetty built with cement and wood is still capable of berthing small boats. The light house placed right above the hill overlooking the jetty presents a royal image of the jetty.

It is also possible to lay eye upon the Goan shoreline and the Terekhol River. The busy port of the Maratha warriors, however, now lies in taters.
