According to Hindu mythology, Goa magically appeared when the God Vishnu fired his arrow into its sands. Maybe that's why holidays in Goa are so out of this world.
There are 66 miles of beaches to choose from, each one with its own unique personality. And so much amazing food to try. For 450 years Goa was a Portuguese colony so the local cuisine is a tempting blend of Portuguese flavour and Indian spice. But don't worry if you've got a more conservative palate. Most of Goa's hotels serve international dishes of a particularly high standard.
Shopaholics will love the colourful markets and bazaars. And can buy tailormade clothes and shoes for a fraction of the UK price. While night-owls can party into the small hours in the buzzing beach-front bars of Anjuna and Vagator. There's a Western feel to the nightlife in Goa and plenty of other holidaymakers to strike up conversation with.
A great place to stay in Goa is the Marinha Dourada. Its rooms are simple but its surroundings are beautiful. The perfect getaway for those looking to relax. From here, take an excursion to Dudhsagar Waterfalls – the most impressive falls in Goa. Bathe in the clear waters in the midst of the jungle greenery. Just watch out for the monkeys…
