India is a destination like no other. One of the most fruitful sources of world cultures and religions, richly endowed with wildlife and flora and fauna, the subcontinent is endlessly fascinating and incredibly beautiful.
Goa has a rich mix of colonial history, sophisticated culture, hedonistic vibes and world beating beaches.
Here are five of our favourites:
Check out this understated yet stunning spit of beautiful white sand between the Arabian Sea and the Assolna River Estuary. Bring a picnic and settle in for a tranquil treat.
Complete your Goa experience with a calming yoga session in the very place it originated. There are countless retreats and studios to choose from – whether its vigorous vinyasa or tranquil yin you’re after.
Discover Goa’s rich interior – home to a bewildering variety of flora & fauna. And chief amongst them is the biggest of the big cats – the tiger, which you can see in the wild cat reserve.
For 300 years and more, Old Goa was the Portuguese capital – celebrated around the world as a Venice of the east with its gothic cathedrals, grand colonial buildings and balmy atmosphere
Miramar, about 3 kilometres from Panaji, may not be the prettiest of beaches, but head here if Scuba is your pleasure. Beneath the water, things are vibrant, colourful and brimming with life!
