Goa Beach Huts

Beach huts in Goa

Goa beach huts are probably some of the most popular accommodation options for a vacation in Goa, but especially common in south Goa – Palolem, Patnem and Agonda beaches. Staying in Goa beach huts gives a substantially different experience from staying in the other types of Goa hotels.
Either in a simple Goa beach hut or in a fancy Goa beach hut (or any beach hut in between) it is impossible to ignore the unique atmosphere and this sunlit, salty scented vibe that envelopes anyone who is fortunate enough to be a guest of a Goa beach hut resort. Although Goa hotels can be no less indulging, and in some aspects even more, if it's not a Goa beach hut resort it will always lack this elusive ambience.

Resorts in Goa - Goa Beach Resorts

Best time to visit Goa

The best time to visit Goa for a Goa beach hut experience must be between beginning of November - when the beach huts and resorts in Goa are built, and 15th of May, than Goa beach hut resorts are taken down for monsoon season.

Palolem Beach and Patnem Beach

This long stretch of white sandy beach in its semi-circle moon-like shape, accompanied by coconut trees on its entire length, is also densely populated with all possible types of beach huts. From Cozy Nook beach huts at its north to Green Park beach huts at its southernmost part, Palolem beach popularity keeps growing and attracts all kinds of travelers and vacationers.

Agonda Beach

The next most 'Goa beach huts' popular beach is Patnem beach. At Patnem beach there is a significant change when looking at its beach huts guests. It is immediately noticed, when arriving to Patnem beach, that the vast majority of tourists are actually families with children, who arrived for a Goa beach vacation. And Patnem beach huts resorts are well prepared and ready exactly for these types of guests. A lot of Patnem beach huts resorts have more than just a few beach huts that are spacious enough to accommodate a family of 4 or 5 members. It is possible to find such rooms at Cuba resort, April 20 and Salida Del Sol resorts, which are all very family friendly. Patnem beach itself has an innocent and very relaxed vibe, and is packed with children playing with each other on the beach or swimming together with their parents in the sea, while attentive lifeguards are spread every 50 meters along the shore, watching them.

Goa Cuisine – Food, Dining and Restaurants in Goa

Goa is a food lover's paradise, offering a taste tour of Indian cuisine, alongside local specialities, fantastic fresh seafood and tropical fruits, as well as international food options to suit the palates of its two million visitors.

Goan Food

The food in Goa, as with anywhere in the world, is influenced by location and climate. This small coastal state relies heavily on fishing, so seafood is a major part of the diet. The land is planted with coconut palms and rice paddies, and so coconut (oil, milk, cream and alcohol) is an important ingredient in Goa recipes, and rice is the staple food. Various spices are used to give the food its intense flavours.

However, what makes Goan food so distinctive is that it is also heavily influenced by history. 450 years of colonization resulted in Goan cooking absorbing a strong Portuguese flavour. Local seafood, coconut, and tangy kokum were combined with palm vinegar (unknown elsewhere in India), chillies and cashew nuts (introduced by the Portuguese) and meats, especially pork, to produce one of the world’s original fusion foods.

To this day, Goan ‘fish curry rice’ - freshly caught fish, such as mackerel, in a hot and sour coconut gravy - is a daily meal.

Traditional Goan Dishes

Unlike much of Indian cuisine, Goan cooking uses a lot of meat and fish. Goan Catholics in particular have been heavily influenced by their Portuguese heritage, with famous fusion dishes including vindaloo, traditionally prepared with pork and vinegar, spicy chouriço sausages, and chicken xacuti with chillies and coconut milk - all dishes whose names and ingredients have their origins in Portuguese cuisine, but with a Goan twist. Mol De Peixe (fish pickle) and Balchao (prawn pickle) are popular accompaniments.

The catch of the day may include kingfish, pomfret, shark and mackerel, with seafood including crabs, prawns, oysters and squid. Seafood can be cooked in sour and spicy sauces such as ambot tik, or more delicate coconut based masalas, rava fried in semolina flour, or baked in a tandoori clay oven.

And for dessert, the Indo-Portuguese blend is again evident in Goa’s most famous pudding bebinca, a rich, layered egg custard with coconut.

Goa Street Food and Dhabas

If you’re hungry but don’t want a full meal, are on a tight budget, or just want to explore eating like a local, then a local dhaba or street food cart is the perfect food pit stop.

Street food carts can be found in most towns in the evening, serving anything from chouriço sandwiches to deep fried chillies. In India’s only beef loving state, beef Chamuças (a type of samosa) and beef croquettes are also a common sight.

Another firm favourite is the Raos Omelette, dipped in a spicy coconut-based gravy and garnished with lime and onions.

And every Goan village will have a dhaba serving chai and bhaji-pao - a pea and potato curry with local bread - for breakfast.

Dining and Restaurants in Goa resorts

While it’s worth seeking out some authentic Goan food whilst on holiday, restaurants in Goa cater to all tastes and palates - from budget south Indian Udupis dishing up vegetarian classics such as masala dosa to high-end establishments serving gourmet mediterranean food. However, most of the time you will probably eat at local beach shacks, or your beach resorts in-house restaurants, offering fresh fruit smoothies, snacks, Indian curries, and fresh seafood on the bbq.

And if you crave a taste of home, whether that’s Tel Aviv, London or Berlin, then a number of expat run cafes can satisfy your craving for hummus, fish & chips or just a really good cup of coffee.

Drinks in Goa

Goa’s popularity as a holiday destination is boosted by having the lowest rates of tax on domestic alcohol in India, from famous Kingfisher beer and Old Monk rum to a wide range of wines and spirits.

Goan Porto, a sweeter less refined version of its Portuguese namesake, can be found everywhere, alongside feni, the local speciality made from cashew nuts or coconuts. Every bar will have its distinctive own feni, whether double distilled or flavoured with spices, but beware - it’s an acquired taste and extremely potent!

For non-alcoholic refreshment, popular local drinks include Badam, an almond milk, or sweet yoghurt lassi, as well as the ubiquitous chai and fresh coconut water.

But on the beaches you’ll find a wide range of refreshing drinks, including lots of tropical fruit juices, and imported alcohol alongside the local alternatives. So why not invent your own cocktail and continue Goa’s rich history of flavour fusion!
