Enjoy Goa beaches and sightseeing with attractive Goa packages

By Sofia Jennie Subscribe to RSS | April 7th 2012 | Views:

Are you looking for a seaside holiday? Do you have a fetish for a historical escapade? Would you love to be surrounded by forests & waterfalls? Would you like to be thrown back into the time warp through historical forts & churches? If your answer to all these questions is ‘yes’, then a trip to Goa is just the perfect thing for you.

Located in the south-west part of India, Goa is the biggest holiday destination in India and one of the best in the world. Goa serves a cocktail of a multitude of things- from pristine beaches to panoramic waterfalls to 16th churches & mansions to wildlife sanctuaries- you can get a bit of everything out here. Goa packages are, therefore, exceedingly popular amongst the Indians. Even foreign tourists looking for spectacular beaches and the cosmopolitan culture come to Goa for the rich experience. Those who crave for a brush with history also meander into Goan territories since Goa beautifully displays its old glorious colonial past through forts, monuments, cathedrals, mansions & museums.

Goa beaches & sightseeing: A trip to Goa is highly sought-after because of the famous Goa beaches. The state boasts of close to 40 beaches and all of them are open to public. Beaches like Baga beach, Palolem beach, Anjuna beach, Dona Paula beach and Miramar beach are some of the more popular ones. At these beaches, you can experience heavenly delights with the shadowy palm trees and the traditional coconut juice. Also, you will love the array of sports these beaches offer. From parasailing to wind surfing to water cycling to sailing- you will be spoilt for choice. There are many Goa hotels that are situated in the neighbourhood of Goa’s beaches and you can check into one of those. Goa’s forlorn sea evokes nostalgia as the sun sets and you can see the sailors & fishermen in the far-away horizon. At Goa, you can also go for a cruise ride in the luxury yacht.

Goa sightseeing consists of visiting the famous churches (like the Se Cathedral), exploring the state’s greenery and wildlife (Dudhsagar Falls, Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Bondla Wildlife sanctuary) and soaking in the local culture. There are interesting museums and historical sites as well for the history lovers. Boating at lakes (Mayem Lake) is another option!

Where to stay: There are many Goa hotels where you can check into. Apart from hotels, you can also settle down into beach huts, guest houses or live as paying guest. But to avoid any hassle or last-minute anxiety, it is prudent to buy Goa packages, inclusive of Goa sightseeing, and a well-informed Goa travel guide, for a hassle-free trip to Goa.

• Se Cathedral
