Goa Travel Guide

Overview

The very thought of Goa brings into mind a coastal retreat, swaying palm fringes, shimmering sands, blue water and a gleaming sun. North Goa is your destination if you are looking forward to a happening holiday with water sports, fun-filled beach life and rave parties; whereas, South Goa is more relaxing and a respite from hectic day-to-day life. Be it a family holiday, weekend getaway with friends or a honeymoon, Goa is a perfect holiday destination. Sun-drenched beaches, parties, casino, friendly local people, great sea food, historical remains and urbane characteristic of the place are forever delightful. The place holds lot more than its beaches churches, parties, cuisines, water sports and exquisite pleasures. The vanilla-scented spice plantation, the bird-filled banks of the rivers, centuries-old cathedrals, and the white-water waterfalls are worth to be visited. Come & unwind to the swaying palms and rhythms of Goa.
