The island of Divar can be reached by a ferry ride on both sides: the ferry on the north side of the island is at Old Goa about 7 kms from Panaji and the ferry on the south side is from Narwe.The ferries leave quite frequently throughout the day, unless there is inclement weather in the monsoons, so there is hardly any chance of being stranded on the island.From both ferry crossings, the road passes through picture postcard Goan countryside, full of rice fields and wooded hills, before reaching the village of Piedade. Piedade, a small, typical Goan village is spread at the bottom of a small forested hillock on which there is the Church of Our Lady of Compassion. Like the island of Chorao, well maintained, elegant Portuguese villas dot the countryside. From the top of the hill, superb panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, including Old Goa and the meandering Mandovi river can be seen. The famous Bonderam festival is celebrated in Divar, during the monsoon with great fanfare and attended by thousands of tourists and locals. The charm of these islands, where life seems to have been unchanged for hundreds of years, can only be seen and experienced by walking or cycling through the countryside. A few points to be covered are Goa Marriotts, Divji Circle, Crossway, Old GIM, Ferry Cross, Tour of Divar, Ferry Cross to Old Goa and back to hotel.
