Splendid break from the mundane

If you are looking for an undisturbed holiday, relaxed and laid back, then South Goa is the place you are looking for. And if you want to spend it right next to a beach, then narrow down to Colva. Vast flat coastline and a white fine sands are just a soothing natural spa for your feet.

Hit the beach early morning and you can experience one of the finest sunrises of your life. Best, be dressed in your swim gear, as the tide is low, and you can walk down far enough on the large pool in front of you.

You might like to get a little hipster here, with all the tattoos, music, nightlife, and beach-side candle light dinner in the evenings. Walk down to the beach and you can enjoy yourself with a cool 'Mojito' with your partner at the beach over a candle light.

You can savour your taste buds with the roast on the steaks - 'Chicken Shawarma Huts', a small shack opposite the Sagar Kinara hotel on the street. Street chicken was never this better before.

Grab a scooter and you can drive all the way up North and South Goa for as little as Rs. 300/- a day. (Trust me, you will call me back and thank me for this! ).
