PANAJI, Oct 31: Weeks after the seas off Goa's beaches were rendered "unsafe", the popular haunts will formally open for swimming from November 1 with 24 'no-selfie' zones, a state agency said here on Wednesday.
With Monsoon waning and post-monsoon showers receding, state appointed Drishti Lifesaving lifeguard agency, has started the process of setting up safe swim-zones along the state's coastline, a statement issued said.
Cyclonic winds had triggered underwater and rip currents in the seas that had led to the deferring. "Starting November 1, all beaches will be open for swimming and beach activity," Drishti said. - IANS
