Other things to note
Clyde will welcome you and explain how works the house.

Each bedroom has its own double wooden and confortable bed (home made design), with mosquito net that you can fix very easily.

The house has a well, and the water is pumped from there to the water tank on the roof. When the water-tank is empty, you just have to plug the pump, and don't forget to unpluged it when it overflows. It's not drinkable water.

You can find all the bedsheets, towels, blankets, pillows and mosquito net in the big yellow cupboard (partition between the gallery and the open bedroom).

In the entrance you can find the time table of the pomburpa ferry.
You can get ferries all night long but you have to ask for a "special ferry" (50 Rs) and horn to get it, after midnight on Pomburpa side and after 2am on Ribandar side. Even during day time you can ask for a "special ferry" if you're late...

There are some small shops on Chorao Island, about 5 mn walking, on Saoud side, where you could buy grocery products ( Alcino's and Raju's).

As restaurant you have two option on Chorao, close by:
- Santhosh Restaurant (Saoud, near main church)

Caraim, Goa, India

On the island, is one of the last mangroves in India, it is home to the Birds Salim Ali bird Sancatuary, named after the renowned ornithologist of India.

On Pomburba side, once you cross the ferry, little further on the left, take the first right and discover the lovely and peacefull Pomburpa spring. Prefer in week time than week end (less people) and enjoy the fresh spring water! There is a nice restaurant at the entrance.

From Chorao, you can access to the 3 differents main cities of north Goa. You can reach each city from 3 differents side on the island:
- Mapusa (Pomburpa ferry): very good for market and way to beaches (Vagator/anjuna/mandrem/ashwem direction)
-Panjim (Ribandar ferry): capital of Goa, good to go out and any kind of shoping
- Bicholim (bicholim road: east of Chorao): less touristic, more "india city". Beautifull road in the middle of cashews plantation and rice field. Nice lake in Mayem, good market for food.
- Goa hot spots: Saturday night market near Vagator and flee market every wednesday in Anjuna.
