Yet the amazing thing about the beaches in Goa is that each of them has a unique personality of its own. While some are serene, others are picturesque. While some offer breath-robbing view of the sunset, others offer exciting water sports. The world of Goa is not limited to the beaches. Once you walk out into the streets, you can come across age-old mansions, churches, cathedrals, cemeteries, forts and a bustling culture that has a hint of the old Portugal colonial era.

Goa sightseeing: Goa is a small yet mesmerizing world. There are so many things to see and do here that as a holiday-lover, you couldn’t have asked for more. The churches especially the popular ones like Se Cathedral and Basilica of Bom Jesus will pull you into the nostalgia-evoking medieval era. Then there are some wonderful lakes, museums, forests and waterfalls which will keep you outdoors throughout your trip.

Goa’s nightlife is also amazing and deserves a special mention. You can also spend your evening in the Goa beaches where party goes on till midnight and even later. Beaches in Goa do offer a heavenly getaway to the city-wearied souls. At these beaches, exciting sports like parasailing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and banana ride await you. You can also book a cruise ride and have an exciting time. Wildlife freaks can check out some cool bird parks and wildlife sanctuaries while the lovers of history can get forlorn amidst the forts, museums, churches and graveyards.

Where to stay: There are many Goa hotels where you can check in. From the luxurious resorts to the modest budget hotels, you can easily find an accommodation of your choice. However, it will be advisable to book Goa hotels in advance since the place is teeming with tourists through the year.

Where to eat: There are several restaurants, food joints, food stalls and café where you can find mouth-watering food. Goa hotels also serve delicious food of varying cuisines. Do try Goa’s seafood and also enjoy the coconut juice at the beaches.
