For safety purposes, Goa beaches have now put up flags and signs in certain areas of their beaches which prohibits the public from clicking selfies.
What Is It?
With Goa’s beaches attracting over 6 million tourists each year, some important rules had to be implemented. After a lot of reports stating deaths due to drowning, Goa’s beaches are now taking action. They’ve installed warnings at certain areas of their beaches which claim that the tourists aren’t allowed to click selfies. The ‘no-selfie’ zones are allotted so that people don’t slip or trip over slippery rocks and wet sands and get prone to accidents.
What Are These Areas?
Until now, 24 ‘no-selfie’ points in Goa have been allotted. These include spots on Arambol, Anjuna, Baga Beach, Sinquerim Fort, Vagator, Dona Paula Jetty, Siridao, and Bambolim in North Goa. In South Goa, the risky areas are Bogmalo, Agonda, Canaguinim, Polem, Japanese Garden, Talpona, Rajbagh, Khola, Palolem and Betul.
Further, they will be installing instruction posters, emergency toll free numbers, and a list of do’s and don’t’s as well.
