Just go Goa …

India’s most popular tourist spot – Goa is known extensively all over the world for its beautiful beaches. Goan culture being a combination of hundred different cultures differs greatly from rest of the country. Goa’s many forts and churches add charm to the coastal state.
A general notion of Goa paints a picture of crowded beaches, party atmosphere and unlimited fun. As true as this is, sadly, the hype turns a blind eye to the silent side of the coastal state and ignores the many secluded, unexplored gems of Goa. Whether one wishes to explore the coastal beauty running parallel to Western Ghats or hoping to relax on a beach and gift themselves a long break, Goa has it all. As a popular tourist destination Goa has a number of activities one can enjoy. These activities range from exploring ancient fort ruins, experiencing trilling water sports to enjoying delicious Goan cuisine and exotic drinks on the soothing beaches.

Anjuna Beach

One of the most visited beaches in North Goa – Anjuna has witnessed the world change. Having once been a scenic Hippie paradise, the beach lost most of its charm to coastal erosion. The small rocky beach that’s left is now known for Goa trance music, flea market and rave parties. Flea market operates every Wednesdays and is filled with stalls selling wide variety of clothing items, jewellery, handicrafts and much more. The scenic hill supervising all the happy parties on the beach makes it a great spot to try out bungee jumping, paragliding, and windsurfing.
There are plenty of options for accommodation in Anjuna. However, booking is suggested as finding a room could be tricky during the peak seasons.

Arambol Beach

The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach. Henry Beston
