Goa is one of the hottest holiday destinations for both international and domestic tourists who believe fun has boundaries. Goa is smallest state of India with the biggest heart. It has played a vital role in the exchange of customs and traditions with the European world. Turning the pages of history we know that Goa was the first trade coast of India discovered by Vasco Da Gama, a Portuguese Sailor. As a tribute to the brave heart sailor, the famous town Vasco was named after him. Someone has rightly said big thing come in small packages and it proves to be right in term of Goa – the natural water kingdom.

The dominating religion in Goa is Christianity adopted from the western world. Goa follows a unique custom of inheritance where the son and the daughter bear equal right over property. Goan follows the Portuguese tradition not the Indian.

The best season for Goa Holidays is September – April. Goa has developed a high network of transportation with the advancing technologies and reaching Goa had become easier than of previous days. One can reach Goa through the vast network of Airways, Railways and Roadways.

Goa is primarily divided in to North and South both having their own characteristic. North Goa is a hotspot with numerous clubs and restaurants at your service. The Golden beaches of North Goa are Calangute, Candolim, Morjim, Anjuna and Baga. South Goa where time travels at a slower pace has more calm and peaceful beaches. They are Colva, Varca, Betalbatim, Palolem, Majorda and Galjibagh. Among all the beaches in Goa, Galjibagh beach with its unique feature of turtle breeding. The beaches of both the north and south propose shacks which are huts with restaurant facilities facing the deep blue ocean.

Watching the waves hit the shore with a chilled margarita in hand is a perfect holiday on the beaches of Goa. Watching the sun go down in the evening is a stunning view; the yellow sun turns red and goes to another world creating night. The black velvet of night spreads, compelling us to repose but the city comes to life with lights which sleeps during day just to make the night overwhelming. The beaches of Goa offer a wide range of water sports. Swimming, scuba diving, parasailing and riding water scooters are some of recreation facilities. A holiday in Goa is splendid.

Along with the beaches Goa has variety on churches and forts which brings to us the bygone memories which were once alive, now faded with time. The film festival in the mid of February attracts thousands of movie lovers from all the corners of the world.

Goa doesn’t care for age. The young and the old are awestruck by the charm of Goa. Goa is also a perfect honeymoon destination. Couples can never forget their stay in Goa as it is also stand as the hallmark of love and romance. They say, “Don’t make too many friends in Goa as you won’t be able to say goodbye”. Well it’s true, once stepped foot in Goa; it’s incredibly tough to go home.

Goan cuisine is considered one of the best in the world. Located on the west coast of the Arabia Sea, Goa has a good supply of fresh sea food which is hard to resist. Vindallos, prawns, pomfret, tuna, crabs, lobsters, squid and mussels are common delicacies. Fenny is the national drink of Goa which is abstracted by fermenting cashew and coconut.

Holiday in Goa is a lifetime experience which cannot be expressed in words. The tall palm trees and the clear blue sea are waiting for her new companion so what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take the first step towards the land of beaches and it will take a thousand steps towards you.
