Goa is a stunningly beautiful state in the south-western corner of India. Standing by the mighty Arabian Sea, Goa is home to close to 50 fascinating beaches that are extremely alluring and promising. But there’s much to Goa than just the wild sea.

Enthralling beaches: If you are a beach lover then a holiday in Goa can bring you to the most exotic ones no matter what kind of delight you seek. Goa beaches, ethereal and stupendously beautiful, encompass every pleasure that seas have to offer right from the warm waters to the tickling sun to the mound of sand to the breezy palm trees. Though there are many beaches in Goa ranging from the most exciting to the most serene, Dona Paula Beach is perhaps the biggest crowd puller.

The mystical Dona Paula: Dona Paula Beach has its history. This beach is, no doubt, a Lover’s Paradise because of the tragic love story associated with it in the form of Viceroy’s daughter jumping off from the cliff. While this is a great spot to come in with your loved one, you also get to enjoy the aquatic sports like water scooting and motor boat rides here. Colva Beach, Benaulim Beach, Anjuna Beach and Baga Beach are other popular beaches.

Cathedrals & Temples: Though the Goa beaches are extremely addictive with parties going late into the night, you can take a sabbatical and head to some of the most captivating and poignant cathedrals like the Se cathedral, Chapel of St. Francis Xavier, etc. While these churches are imprints of the state’s Portugal history, the presence of Hindu temples like the Sri Devaki Krishna Temple and the Sri Kamakshi Temple reinstate Goa’s mix ethnicity.

Old Goa, Margao and Mapusa: Old Goa is historically extremely rich and has been declared a heritage site by UNESCO. A holiday in Goa is incomplete without visiting old Goa. Margao is a busy town that houses some interesting churches, graveyards, temples and, more importantly, the mansions influenced by Portugal style while Mapusa is another fascinating beach.

Monuments and museums: Goa holiday also comes with exploring the historical glory of the state replete with monuments, forts and museums. Aguada Fort is another must-visit and you must also visit some of the most amazing waterfalls and bird parks.

Carnivals: Panjim’s annual carnival (held in February) is a big draw. The Monte Music Festival, New Year festivals and Christmas revelries will spice up your holiday in Goa.

Besides, the sightseeing spots, wildlife prospects, caves, old buildings, local culture, fabulous nightlife and delightful food are other attractions of Goa.
