About Goa: Goa is more than beaches and trance parties. A kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures, sweetened with sun, sea, sand, seafood and spirituality, is nowhere in India. Situated in the west coast of India, Goa is a state associated with tourist beaches, a nightly nightlife and over 300 years old Portuguese architecture. It offers glistening sands, coconut palms and ultra fresh sea food. In luxury hotels and budget guesthouses, fishermen get caught in their nets, and beer comes cheap and cold. Discovered by leading hippies in search of peace and love. The beaches of Goa are now filled with hawkers by day and attend parties at night.
With the intention of exploring the real India, Goa is considered to be the best for resting on the southern path. Goa’s natural borders, the Arabian Sea and the Sahyadri mountains had saved it from much of India’s inland upheaval, while its strategic position on the newly discovered trading route to the east made it even more attractive.The quaint towns of their red-tiled roofs and charming fishing villages surrounded by narrow streets and coconut groves have a Mediterranean atmosphere.
