A trip to Goa is a must if you’re looking for pure enjoyment because Goa has it all. It’s a perfect tourist destination. Goa is also important from heritage point of view because it houses structures which date back to the medieval period and history lovers will surely love this place. Although Goa is the smallest state in India, it has many tourist sites. Konkani is widely spoken although English and Hindi are well understood here. You surely need to plan your Goa holiday and then just enjoy.

Portugal had invaded Goa in the 1600’s and has left its mark here. You will easily find Portuguese influence in almost every aspect of Goa. The culture of Goa is heavily influenced by Portugal and so is its cuisine. Rice and coconut are the staple food. Seafood is also widely eaten. The use of kokum along with several spices is common here. Any Goan dish is said to be incomplete without fish in it. Fish curry is the daily dish prepared here. You should try out such savory dishes in your Goa trip. You can easily find a local restaurant serving the local cuisine at any Goa beach.

Whichever Goa beach you visit, enjoyment is guaranteed. Candolim is one of the most famous beaches of Goa; all you need is an umbrella to settle down beneath the sun. This beach is relatively quiet. It is an ideal place for relaxing from your hectic work schedule. You can sunbathe, meditate or do yoga. You can also visit the Fort Aguada, which is a historic monument on the beach. You can enjoy water sports such as water skiing and parasailing as well. So it makes perfect sense to include Candolim beach in your Goa holiday.

Another beautiful beach is the Dona Paula beach, which is just 7 km from Panjim. It is named after Dona Paula de Menezes and is believed that the soul of the lost love of Dona Paula de Menezes haunts this place. The National Oceanographic Institute is nearby where you can learn about marine life. The Choro Island along the Mandovi River is just 9 km away from this beach. Your Goa trip can be enriched with visits to these beaches.

After a relaxing experience of a Goa beach, you can explore the waters by going on a river cruise. The beautiful rivers and the lakes will surely leave you mesmerized. Even though the cruise idea is new, it is very famous and it is a must for every tourist to have a cruise ride experience. The Pearl of the Orient is the main attraction here, being a combination of cultural and natural heritage. Star cruise offers another great cruising experience, covering Goa, Lakshadweep and Kochi. Therefore these cruises should be part of your Goa holiday. You Goa trip will surely be enjoyable with so many things to do, see and experience.
