The aim of setting up no selfie zones is to reduce the number of accidents caused by falls from slippery and rocky areas along the Goa coastline, which incidentally also provide a vantage point for selfie and photography enthusiasts.
The 24 unsafe selfie points with signages which have been identified are located near Baga River, Dona Paula Jetty, Sinquerim Fort, Anjuna, Vagator, Morjim, Ashwem, Arambol, Kerim and between Bambolim and Siridao (all beaches) in North Goa. In South Goa, the signs have been placed at Agonda, Bogmalo, Hollant, Baina, Japanese Garden, Betul, Canaguinim, Palolem, Khola, Cabo De Rama, Polem, Galgibagh, Talpona and Rajbagh (all beaches).
The sign boards are being upgraded with pictorial instructions on flags, an emergency toll free number and dos and don’ts while visiting the beaches of Goa.
