Mobor is a resort on a narrow strip of land between the Arabian Sea and the Sal River. In a small area there are several upscale hotels, where mostly wealthy Europeans stay.
Mobor – a long sandy spit, formed at the confluence of the Sal River into the lagoon, surrounded on three sides by water. Beautiful islands, sand dunes, white lilies in ponds – all this makes Mobor unlike other parts of Goa. Its luxurious white sands, like all beaches in India, are municipal property – so do not pay too much attention to the amateur announcements of local hotels that some part of the coast is allegedly intended exclusively for their guests.
Paul McCartney, Bill and Hillary Clinton, most of the Bollywood stars, rested in Mobor.
