Resorts in Goa

If you are lucky enough to be arriving to Goa for a vacation or while traveling in India, you most certainly will have the pleasure of being a guest in one of the many Goa beach resorts. Whether you are traveling in the north of Goa or in south Goa, you will have a wide selection of resorts - more than a few inland, but mostly by the beach. To get to enjoy Goa Beach Resorts you must arrive during the season time, otherwise you will discover that most of the Goa / beach resorts and huts are not open, and you'll be able to accommodate yourself only in rented houses, and big 5 star hotels, mostly not on the beach. Goa season begins on October 15th and ends on the 15th of May. The variety of the beach resorts in Goa is almost endless. You can find anything from budget hotels, simple beach huts and rooms for rent, to luxury resorts, 5-stars hotels and boutique hotels.

Goa Season

During the peak in Goa season, which is around the holidays of Christmas and new year, you will have to book a while in advance, if you don't want to end up in a budget room while you pay up for a luxurious hotel. You will find the most popular Goa beach resorts on the beaches that are stretching from Arambol up in the north through Baga, Calangute, and Panjim to the most picturesque beaches in Goa of Agonda, Palolem, Patnem, and Colomb down in south Goa. You can also find indulging beach resorts at less toured, hidden gems, like the resort at Cola beach in south Goa.

South Goa Resorts

Goa huts

While at the north of Goa most beach resorts and beaches are crowded with youngsters that are seeking for action, in the form of parties, shopping and just being seen, you will find peace and quiet in the much more serene atmosphere of south Goa. Most of the beach resorts in south Goa concentrate on Palolem and Patnem beaches, while the slightly remote but rapidly developing Agonda beach is not falling far behind them. The resorts on those laid back beaches offer quite a few attractions for their guests, like professional Yoga retreats on their premises, day travels to nature reserves, farms and old cities, boat trips, and much more. The beach resorts on Palolem and Patnem are family and children friendly, and you will find rooms spacious enough and well equipped for a family of 4 or even 5 persons.

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
