Visit Goa

Synonymous with idyllic beaches, Goa is the place to come for long lazy days relaxing on the sands, dipping your toes in the softly lapping waves and kicking back under a coconut palm. It’s not just about the beaches though, as Goa offers a handful of worthwhile museums and art galleries, including the Christian Art Museum, the Goa Chitra Museum and the Naval Aviation Museum.

Goa beach and palm tree, India
Golden sands

Goa makes an excellent add-on to an India holiday, whether that’s a tour of Rajasthan and the Golden Triangle in the north, or something a little nearer like a houseboat trip in Kerala in the south. Whichever it is, Goa’s white sandy beaches, warm sunny days and gently swaying palm trees can’t fail to relax and calm your senses. Away from the beach, there’s some fine architecture to discover too, as well as a sizzling cuisine and a whole list of museums and art galleries.

How to get around

Motorbike in Goa

Get on your bike

Goa is quite spread out, so you’ll definitely need some form of transport in order to explore. The easiest way to do this is to book yourself on a variety of day tours, or hire a driver and guide to take you to your chosen sight. If you do want to be more independent then motorbikes and auto rickshaws are the way to go, as they are a cheap and reliable transport method, as well as being an interesting insight into everyday Goan life.
