The idyllic western Indian coastal state of Goa lies beside the majestic Arabian Sea and invites you in for an enchanting experience with her sunshine beaches, fascinating monuments, amazing food, vibrant culture and trendy nightlife. There is much to do which can keep each and every member of your family occupied and entertained.
You can explore the striking churches of Old Goa like the outstanding Se Cathedral which is one of the biggest churches in Asia and also houses a museum or the stately looking Basilica of Bom Jesus which is a World Heritage monument and houses the remains of St. Francis Xavier. The architecture of both churches is intricate and magnificent with definite Portuguese influences.
South Goa has quiet secluded beaches for those looking for some quiet introspection while Central Goa boasts of some of the hippest beaches with happening restaurants and cafes. Some of the best beaches in Goa include Betul Beach, Baga Beach, Anjuna Beach, Cananguinim Beach and Colva Beach. Most of these beaches are packed with shacks which serve some superb seafood.
If you are the kind of traveller with an avid interest in wildlife then Goa has much to offer you like Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary, Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary and Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. These havens of flora and fauna are home to some exotic species of birds, plants and animals. Goa is both exotic and modern and makes for just the perfect getaway.
