Karma Royal MonteRio is close to the ever-popular beaches at Baga and Calangute – where the mood is lively and the party continues long into the night. Both beaches are crammed full of shacks which tend to stay open until the early hours throughout the season. It’s not all noise and bustle, though: away from the main stretch, you’ll find quieter lanes, elegant eateries and less crowded beaches to explore. You can take a river cruise or a dolphin-spotting ocean boat trip for a more laid-back adventure, too.
All foreign tourists must apply for a visa before travelling to India. UK citizens spending up to 30 days in the country can apply for a double entry e-Tourist Visa – make sure you apply at least 4 days before your departure date. All passports must be valid for 6 months subsequent to the visa application date and have at least two blank pages. Full details can be found here
