GOA INDIA

 

 

Travel to Goa India

Goa is India’s smallest state, with beaches that have been voted amongst the best in Asia. A lone Portuguese outpost for more than 450 years, Goa was only reclaimed by India in the 1960s - and the colonial influence is everywhere. Gorgeous (often crumbling) architecture, fusion cuisine and afternoon siestas make Goa India unlike any other part of India. However, the deservedly famous beaches, warm blue seas and magical sunsets over the Arabian Ocean are the main draw for visitors to Golden Goa.

Beach holiday in Goa

More than two million tourists flock to this beautiful 100km slice of the Indian coastline every year. Whether to enjoy water sports and swimming in the sparkling blue sea, take a boat trip to spot dolphins, or just relax on a sun bed with a good book, Goa is a premier beach holiday destination. Cool off with some fresh tropical fruit juices or an ice cold Indian beer, have a relaxing massage or join one of the many Goa yoga classes.

Nightlife continues in this relaxed vibe, with most people happy to slurp some sunset cocktails at one of the many beach shacks and enjoy an evening meal of freshly caught seafood at a table under the stars, near any Goa resort. If you’re looking for some entertainment though, check out WhatsUpGoa for listings of everything from live music and bands, to club nights, casinos and festivals.

Most beaches in Goa India will have a local town with banks, ATMs, travel agents, and shops selling everyday essentials, whilst beach sellers peddle sarongs and offer pedicures and henna tattoos. Serious souvenir shoppers should head to the weekly flea and night markets in north Goa, to haggle for anything from saffron and silver jewellery to sandals and sunglasses.

Holiday off the beach in Goa

Whilst famous for its beautiful coastline, Goa offers many more attractions to those willing to venture off the beach.

Nature in Goa

The extraordinary and abundant nature of Goa India is clear to see everywhere from the swaying coconut palms to the ubiquitous cows on the beach, but many people do not realise they are visiting one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Lush mountain ranges with dense green jungle and hidden waterfalls, and beautiful rivers and backwaters are all open to explore. Bird spotters will marvel at the regular sightings of kingfishers, sea eagles and kites, whilst on a trip to one of Goa’s Wildlife Sanctuaries you may encounter troops of monkeys or even an elusive leopard. Life also continues unchanged at many inland villages, with buffalo ploughing the paddy fields and local women drying spices in the sun.

History in Goa

Architecture and history buffs will also find that Goa has much to offer. From the UNESCO World Heritage cathedrals and convents found in the abandoned 16th century capital Old Goa, to the living and breathing colonial Latin Quarter in Panjim, Goa’s current first city.

The Lunch Club by KOKOindia offers a unique cultural experience ‘beyond the beach’, with a private tour of one of Goa’s grand mansions, and an authentic Indo-Portuguese lunch in a restored Palacio.

The Portuguese policy of destruction resulted in some of the present day Goan temples being unique in India, with domed roofs and white towers borrowing from both Muslim and Christian architecture. One of the most important is the beautiful Shri Mangeshi Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, whose deity was kept hidden during occupation until the temple could be rebuilt.

The Hindu temples poking out from the coconut palms alongside the white churches therefore becomes a great visual metaphor for Goa’s special heritage.

Goa Airport

Travelling to Goa

By plane

Goa Airport or Goa Dabolim airport, where both international charter and domestic flights land, is in the centre of the state, making even the most remote beaches less than two hours drive away. Many international scheduled flights land in Mumbai, an hour’s flight from Goa. Anyway, it is always good to have someone pre-arranged to pick you up in time and drop you directly in your resort in Goa.

By train

The Konkan train line has stations dotted along the length of Goa, although many faster trains only call at Margao (Madgaon) station, in the south. India’s trains are a cheap way of covering long distances in relative comfort, whilst experiencing the changing landscape outside the window. The network covers the whole country, if you plan on extending your Goa trip with a visit to the Kerala backwaters or the Palaces of Rajasthan.

By bus

Buses connect Goa to all the major cities, such as Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, as well as to popular destinations for a trip from Goa, or Goa airport including Hampi and Gokarna. Just be prepared for the bumpy roads!

Getting around Goa

Your mode of travel once you arrive in Goa will depend on the distance to be covered and how much time you have. For short local journeys, hiring a bicycle or scooter or jumping in the back of a rickshaw are the best option, whereas for longer distances you can brave the local buses or arrange for a car and driver for the day.

 

 

Churches of Goa

 

Old Goa

Most of the churches in Goa were built during the time of Portuguese rule, and many of them in Old Goa, which is today a World Heritage site. Goan churches are renowned for their interesting architecture which is a blend of two or more styles and influences.

 

Portuguese Houses of Goa

During Portuguese rule there was a period of 'inquisition" in which most of the Hindu temples were destroyed and churches were built in their place, often on the original site of the temple. The church plays an important role in Catholic Goa's social, cultural and religious life.

Today the churches are all part of the Archdiocese of Goa. The oldest church in Goa is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary on Monte Santo in Old Goa. The style of church at the time that this church was built is known as Manueline after King Emmanuel of Portugal. The churches that were built in the period between 1510 and 1550 are known as the churches of the early period.

Church Houses in Goa

A prime example of a church from this period is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary. The period between 1550 and 1660 is known as the Baroque period, and the best examples of churches from this period are the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Se Cathedral, the Chirch of St Cajetan and the Augustine Church of Our Lady of Grace, which is now in ruins. The other architectural periods are the Rococo period from 1760 to 1899 and the Modern period, from 1900 to current times.

The following is a list of must-see churches in Goa
• Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
• Church of St. Francis of Assisi
• The Se Cathedral
• Basilica of Bom Jesus
• St. Cajetan Church
• Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception
• Chapel and Tomb of St. Francis Xavier
• St. Augustine Tower

Resorts in Goa with private beach

Looking for the perfect vacation in Goa brings people to think of the possibility of finding a resorts in goa with private beach, it does sounds very appealing, having a small coastline for yourself, far away from the rest of the world.

there are actually more then few resorts with a private beach in Goa, these can be divided generaly into 3 Groups, the first are Big Luxurious five star hotels, next are Small Typical Goa Beach Resorts, and last private Goa beach houses.

Goa five star hotels

Only few five star hotels in Goa engoy a private beach, one example is the Lalit resort in south Goa, this 5 star hotel is in beautiful Ragbaj beach, Canacona and just 10 minutes from Patnem and Palolem beach, bordering with Talpona river on its south end, this hotel offers all luxuries and fab golf facilities.

The thing is the beach is not really only for the use of resort guests, and more then often these type of Goa hotels are functioning as grand wedding / convention halls.

Anyway, if its solitude we where searching in our little quest for private beach in Goa this isn't always the right answer.

Goa Beach Resorts

Small resorts in Goa with private beach are more common option, there are many little hidden heavens in Goa, more of them are down south, at the less developed part of the state, places like Cola beach and Little Cola, located not far from Agonda beach, many times these little beaches have a small steam of sweet water running by them as well.

In Cola beach we can find Blue Lagoon beach resort, it has few options of lodging, from Luxury Beachfront Cottages, to Rajasthani Tents and Beach Huts, all set on a private beach by a beautiful little river.

From time to time a wondering traveler is coming down the road leading to Cola bay, but generally speaking the beach is more or less private, but still shared with the other guests of the resort, Goa season is Goa season after all.

Goa beach House

Finding a house with a private beach in Goa is rare, yet if you come in the right time of Goa season and you know where to look it is very possible, few old fisherman houses in Goa where converted over the years into luxury villas, having a great beach steps from your door.

Down south Goa, Colomb bay is just between Palolem and Patnem beach, many times being crossed by tourists unaware of its existence. on Colomb beach, is the amazing Colomb Beach house, enjoying a private beach for big part of the year, (during high season the beach also serves the guests of Laguna Vista).

apart from that there are houses in Talpona, and in Galgebaj that have a semi private beach.

Recently voted second best beach in India and Top 3 Beach in Asia, Agonda is a very popular destination for parents, with a laid back atmosphere, 3-km of pristine white-sand coastline and very family orientated accommodation. With none of the notorious Goan nightlife it has a deserved reputation as the beach to get away from it all, with a selection of resorts helping you do just that!

 

To conclude, houses and resorts in goa with private beach are available, and if you are really into it, and willing to pay for it, you can have your self a private moment on a private beach in Goa India, alone or with a friend.
