Speed Boating on the Baga River

Enjoy a speed boat cruise on the Baga River. Its confluence with the sea is a busy area. But move into the interior and you will have complete peace and serenity. Baga River is also river in fish. You may even see dolphins.

One side of the river has paddy fields and the other side is lined with trees, cafes, bakeries, hotels, resorts, and villas. You will see a strange box-like bridge that is fondly called ‘The Coffin Bridge’. The bridge separates the paddy fields and the settlements. All this suddenly disappears when the river turns right. You will then have a small mangrove area on both the banks with large lakes.

The river meanders through the countryside and gradually narrows. You can stop to visit the Splashdown Waterpark. If you are cruising in the afternoon, then you can also visit the Arpora Night Market in the evening.

Its confluence with the sea is hilly. You will notice a group of black rocks making an enchanting view of nature. There is annual boat festival held in late June. It is called the Sangodd Festival. Protection Status
