In its endeavour to provide high end infrastructure facilities to attract more tourists to Goa, the government is planning to construct a Marina and two sites – Talpona in Canacona taluka and Tiracol in Pernem taluka – have been shortlisted for it.
Given Goa’s position as a favoured destination for travelers all over the world, a marina has been on the anvil for quite some years now as it would attract those wanting adventure by sailing to the State.
Officials have studied marinas around the world and specially in the Gulf region and propose to attract vessels from there to Goa. Currently yachts berth at Singapore or Colombo in the Asian region and Goa proposes to become a better alternative to these two destinations.
The marina is proposed to be constructed on the PPP module.
