Goa – A perfect Beach Getaway

Dotted with pristine beaches, Goa’s coastal areas are mesmerizing indeed. The beaches are ideal for water sports or plain lazing around in a shack with scrumptious sea food and chilled bear. Start your beach itinerary with the hot favourite Anjuna beach, where you can party throughout the night or pick tremendous bargains at the weekly flea market.

For a dose of history along with beachside revelry head to the white sandy Sinquerim beach. Remnants of the majestic Fort Aguada stand there. From here, you can take a long beach walk to the delightfully serene Candolim beach; perfect for a day of quiet sunning under a hired beach umbrella or gorging on excellent local cuisine. If the solitude becomes overbearing, then head to the nearby Calangute Beach called the ‘queen of beaches’. This beach is colourfully splashed with sunbathers, bustling beach markets and aromatic food stalls. It is wise to skip swimming here as the waters are treacherous. From here, you may move to the adjoining peaceful Baga beach, ideal for fishing. Baga is also considered one of the very few top-less Indian beaches.

To behold a splendid example of Christian architecture in Goa, head to the church of St. John the Baptist, which overlooks the Benaulim beach. For dolphin cruises, the Palolem with its epithet of ‘Paradise Beach’ proves perfect. This fishing beach also abounds with dirt cheap accommodation facilities.

There are scores of other exotic beaches – each with its own unique charm. As you exhaust yourself with Goa’s coastal wonders and your vacation draws to a close, rejuvenate yourself with a calm day at the virginal Agonda beach. As you swim on its crystal clear waters, you can clearly gaze into the ocean’s floor.

So just go ahead with your holidays and plan the entire tour, book your flights to Goa and enjoy life in the beaches hub of India. Goa is among the popular beach destinations worldwide and you must visit there once in a lifetime. Goa travel industry is booming in a fast tempo. You will find all luxurious facilities here from 7 star hotels to expert travel guides.
