Excellent trip to Goa

Goa is the place where you can enjoy beach, visit temple, church, take a boat ride, etc. This is very good attractive place for all the age people. Some of the beaches you can visit Candolim, Calagunte beach, Baga beach, etc. You can visit fort, light house, dolphin trip, in North Goa. In south Goa we visited couple of film shooting spots, a beach, old church, spice estate tour, a temple and 1 hour cruise ride. We could not see any beaches in South Goa due to time shortage. If you enjoy non veg food and drinks, then Goa is a heaven for you. Most of the hotels will have hot drinks and provide sea food and other non veg foods. But for vegetarians it is difficult to find pure veg hotel. We had food in such pure veg hotel "Hotel masala'. The food was amazing.

We wanted to visit an island and dhood sagar falls. After enquiring we understood we had to make booking in advance. So we dropped this idea. There was couple of water sports activity available in Baga beach and Calagunte beach. But we are scared of such activities, hence we didn't tried it. Since I love driving, I took my own car. I took about 11 hours to reach Goa from Bangalore

Candolim beach - Absolute bliss.

I have been to Goa several times. One beach that I like the most is Candolim. If you want to away from much noisy crowd in Goa then candolim is the ideal beach. Most of the foreigners like to visit this beach. There are plenty of hotels and home stay around this area. The complete stretch of candolim beach roads will attract you for shopping. Lot of eateries both side of the road which serves Indian, Chinese, continental and grant food. You must visit to Fisherman's cove. Lovely ambience with music with great food.
Candolim beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Goa. You can spend whole day in the beach. Plenty of shacks available in the beach. They serve you food, drinks and cot to relax in the beach. In the evening the atmosphere gets amazing. You can book a table with candle light lit and spend good time. The ambience is amazing.
Best way to roam in Goa by bike. You can easily get one near every hotels. They charge Rs. 250 to 300 per day. Other side if the candolim beach road goes to Sinqurim beach. It's a nice beach for water ports. One side of the beach is surrounded by Aguada Fort. You can click some nice snaps here. Taj vivanta and kingfisher villa are located close to the beach.
There are many resorts and home stays available here in a walkable distance from the beach. April to October is the best time to be in Goa. Goa is well connected from all major Indian cities by Air, rail and road.
