HolidayIQ Reviewer Rahul shares, “ Goa is known for its beautiful beaches and is heaven for newly married couples. ...The Colva beach was the attraction of that day along with the beautiful churches and temples of Goa. The ancestral home of Portuguese is still maintained. On our last day at Goa, we went to see Aguda fort, Sinquerim and and Bogmalo beaches. We had masti to its fullest and have enjoyed all the water sports at the beaches.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Bandini Kumari shares, “This lake is located at the end of Arambol beach. ...The lake is officially named Vag Kolam, but Goans and travelers insist on calling it by its nickname, Sweet Water Lake. Once you reach the Sweet Water Lake, you will feel as though you are in a different world altogether. ...You may either go for a swim or sit at the local shack and enjoy the view.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nityamukta Banerjee adds, “International-like beach getaway at low cost….in Gokarna Om Beach is a very beautiful place. Pristine, clear blue green water, clean beach, handful of people, mostly foreigners! Rocks and luscious green mountains add to the beauty. Shacks are available on the beach ranging from 300/- to Rs. 1000/-, ...Cafes are attached to these shacks where you can laze around all day, just be yourself and watch the waves go by. Whenever you feel hot, just take your swimming trunk clad body and run for 300 mtrs and dip it into the cool sea water. Come back and soak yourself in the sun while reading a book or, just doing nothing.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ratnakar Reddy Vallem adds, “Its one of the best honeymoon spot for couples. Located in Kerala, with the essence of nature, it has the best boat houses on the Vembanad lake.

Its always ideal to select a resort to stay.” Read Full Review
