Miramar beach is listed amongst the most popular beaches of Goa due to its location. Situated at the distance of 3 km from the Capital of Goa – Panaji. Very few capital cities in the country enjoy the privilege that Panaji has of having a beach within walking distance of its crowded, commercial spaces.
Miramar Beach, also known as the Gaspar Dias, lies close to the estuary of Mandovi River, which merges with the Arabian Sea. In Portuguese, Miramar means ‘viewing the sea’. The 2 km long coast, lined with palm trees vaunts of splendid, soft silvery sand bed that glitter in the moonlight and offer colourful view of the magnificent Portuguese fort Aguanda across the river.
The end of October is the perfect time of the year to host the race with warm tropical weather conditions and temperatures ranging from 29-32°C.
Australian nationals require a valid visa for entry into India.
