1. Re: swimming

Mutty, If you are strong swimmer you will be ok, the sea changes on a daily basis some days the waves are very strong others quite soft If they are strong I avoid going into the sea above my knees and even then Ive been knocked off my feet, I dont think it matters whether its north or south Goa it depends on the waves on the day!

Hope that helps

cheers Lyn x

As Goanluv says it depends on the tide but you can tell even at ankle depth if there is a strong under-tow. At the Dona Sylvia you can see where two tidal patterns meet and so can tell where the currents are at there strongest. Have a great trip :-)
