Goa

4.1
Many tourists come to this former Portuguese colony to enjoy its clean beaches. You will be able to find a secluded spot for relaxation on the most frequented strips of pristine white sand, such as Agonda Beach, or party from sunset to sunrise at an old hippy haunt, Vagator Beach. If you get tired of swimming and sunbathing, you'll find many things to do in Goa away from sand and water. You could spend your entire Goa vacation exploring the region's historical sites. Old Portuguese fortresses, like Fort Aguada and Chapora Fort, provide a greater understanding of local history, while at the same time awarding travelers with spectacular views.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
