When I say Goa, its all about endless coastlines, the number of beaches and a lot of seafood. My recent trip to Goa was all about exploring new places which are raw, untouched and serene.
Goa comprises of North & South Goa. Though North Goa is way more developed in terms of tourism
North Goa comprises beaches like Baga, Candolim, Calangute, Sinquerium, Anjuna, Vagator just to name a few. Almost all the beaches have few sports activities like banana boats, jets, parasailing, etc.
This time we decided to stay in Candolim as compared to putting up in Baga or Calangute because it’s always hustling and is full of life. Candolim is hustling but at its own pace.
The vibe is different and the beach has less to no crowd because it’s just a beach with no sports activity. If you are into sports activity, late-night food lover and a clubbing person than Baga are meant for you.
NORTH & SOUTH GOA
Coming back to places to explore, we explored some unexplored gems of Goa in North and mostly in South Goa. Anjuna beach in North Goa is quite famous but Anjuna Rock beach has its own charm.
It’s quiet and the endless blue sea just takes your breath away. If you planning on going South Goa, take a short cut route from Candolim. Candolim has a shorter route to reach Panjim and ahead.
Dona Paula is a beautiful place and it has a pristine beach like Miramar. But we went for a longer distance which took us to Vasco Da Game and we went for Baina Beach.
Baina beach is what we call Magical. It’s clean, with less to no crowds and, has a small little restaurant which is made from containers giving you naval vibe.
Just ahead of Baina beach is the Japanese Garden, which I couldn’t explore thanks to rain gods. Beaches like Colva, Varca, Cola and Butterfly beach are some of the places you should explore while you going Goa.
One tip would be travelling to and fro from North Goa to South Goa and vice versa will be extremely tiring so either you take a one day stay at South Goa and explore those gems or you just explore South Goa and keep North Goa for next time.
