Beaches

Vast stretches of palm tree-lined coastlines, uninterrupted stretches of golden and white sand beaches, inviting shacks dishing out yummy seafood and chilled drinks, parties under the starry skies and much more – Goa is undoubtedly a beach bum’s paradise. With 105 kms of the picturesque Konkan coast and over 40 beaches, you will be spoilt for choice as there is literally, a beach for everyone. While the party animals and merry holidayers can head to the popular destinations in North Goa like Calangute, Anjuna and Baga, the soul-searchers can head to less noisy beaches like the Butterfly beach and Varca in the South of Goa for a quiet swim and some “me” time.

The adrenaline-junkies lot can try their hand at water sports like windsurfing, paragliding, jet skiing and surfing at hotspots like Candolim and Dona Paula beach, while the honeymooners looking for some romance can choose to take long sunset walks on the quiet Agonda stretch. Sunbathers, swimmers, surfers… everyone can find their own patch of paradise on these sun-kissed shores. Goa is beach bliss at it’s best!
