A romantic anniversary trip

One of the most liberating, relaxing, romantic holidays ever. North Goa is ideal for parties, sightseeing, trying out different restaurants, local cuisine, pubs and shopping. But North Goa while it offers plenty of activities and fun, is also v. Crowded. South Goa is more exclusive, secluded romantic more expensive but ideal for relaxation and peace/romance. It is best to keep south Goa at the end of the trip once you are done with all the activities and roaming around In a nutshell:. Best of north Goa - Sinquirim beach and fort . V. Underrated and must visit Accommodation north Goa - Calangute. Food and shopping north Goa - Baga. Swimming and bathing north Goa - Anjuna. Pubs on the beach north Goa - Anjuna. Best of south Goa - Palolem and Canacuna (the lalith) Personally I prefer Baga for shopping and dining on the beach. The food and shopping options are better in Baga. Calangute shopping joints don't have that great collection. However the beach shacks in Calangute are nearer to the sea though food is better in Baga. Please carry beach slippers because the ones you get here won't last. Dresses and beach wear are average so better to carry some and pick up some if you like. When it comes to accommodation in North Goa please choose Calangute. The best facilities, best location and best hotels near the beach at affordable prices are in Calangute. From here rent a bike and other beach like bags anjuna will be hardly 15mins. The hotels and ambience in Calangute is more family and couple friendly. I'm Baga some hotels play loud music till wee hours and in Anjuna only few are near the beach. Anjuna also seems to have power and water problem so best to visit these places by bike. Vagator sinquirim and candolim are also nearby from Calangute. The must visit spot I feel is sinquirim especially during sunset. For South Goa it is best to choose a luxury resort and if possible with a private beach and just relax or spend a romantic holiday. Lalith in canacuna is a good option. South Goa has more secluded private beaches ideal for swimming walking star gazing lounging and relaxing on the sunbeds. There are hardly other travelers around in private beaches. Romantic dinners and long walks are great ideas. A day in the pool is another option. I had a great time doing nothing and watching the waves go by.

Magical Goa

Goa is an excellent place to visit, with the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The people are really very sweet. We took a halt at the Cavelossim beach, Goa. It is a wonderful beach with clear water and plain white sand. We stayed at the Novotel, Dona Silva, which had a exotic view of the beach from the room. It was magical waking up to the sound of the waves and the lush green trees and bushes of the resort. A walk through the gardens, admiring the beauty of nature, was enough an exercise to raise our spirits. After breakfast, was our time with the water, either in the pool or the beach. Lunches usually were at the shacks near the water. We used to be in the water for a few hours and return back. Sitting on the hammock, Reading a book of my choice, was my favourite pass time. The second being scrabble. Play scrabble with my family or solving a puzzle with my sister were my simple moments of joy. . When in Goa you must have the local dishes for sure, like the mouthwatering vindaloo and xacuti, the soft poi and pancakes. The roadside rolls and sandwiches also make up a delicious part of it. Goa stays awake at night with the beach parties and disco, you won't have a track of time. The hosts show never forgetting hospitality and kindness. Goa is a place of lots of joy and excitement from the calm mornings to the nights with rock music. Goa always has something in store for you.

Goa Overview

India's smallest state Goa is located on the western coast of the country, adjoining the Arabian Sea, which provides the beach holidays that Goa is internationally famous for. The states of Maharashtra in the north and Karnataka in the south and east surround Goa. Together with the coastal stretches of these states, Goa is part of a larger cultural region known as Konkan. Northern Goa is more populated and urban, while the south is more forested. Beaches apart, rice fields and coconut plantations dominate the landscape. However, tourism is Goa's main industry.

For 450 years Goa was a Portuguese colony until taken over by India in 1961. This heritage is still apparent in the architecture of its churches and old houses, and the culture of its towns, which is very distinct from the rest of India. In the Catholic world Goa is important as the place where St Francis Xavier is buried (in the Basilica de Bom Jesus at Old Goa). Apart from Christmas and New Year celebrations, the 3-day long Goa Carnival (February, Panaji) and the Feast of St Francis (3 Dec, Old Goa) are famous attractions.

From north to south, the Goa coastline is marked by a number of beach towns, with relaxed ambience, seafood and water sports such as wind surfing, water skiing, sailing, water-scooters, and dolphin spotting cruises. The beaches of Calangute and Baga are the most visited while other famous beaches include Arambol, Anjuna, Candolim, Colva and Palolem.

Panaji is the state capital, a city of peaceful walks in the old Portuguese quarters, and cruises on Goa's main river, Mandovi. Nearby is the earlier capital city of Old Goa with its celebrated cathedrals, abandoned in the 19th century due to a persistent epidemic. Margao town is another centre of Portuguese cultural heritage. Ponda stands out for its Hindu temples built between 15th and 18th centuries. The international airport, Dabolim, is 29 km from Panaji. Humid for much of the year, Goa's peak season is November-February, especially Christmas-New Year time, for when advance bookings are essential.
