.SO BAD, PLEASE BE CAREFUL that exchange money shop.
North goa offers you the perfect Hippie culture Goa is Known for. Indulge the day in sight seeing, water sports, sticking to a shack and spending all the long just looking into the water, enjoying the best quality and taste of food, while reserve the night for some real party.
There's a specific lane in North Goa(calingute), which has a series of pubs which are really cheap. It is highly recommended to spend some time here, see what Goa is known for, before preceding to find some relaxation to the south of the state.
Calangute and Baga beaches are very crowded on holidays - but if you go to lesser known beaches like Anjuna or Candolim, then your stay will be very comfortable and no need to traverse through the crowds.
But either way - beaches are very clean and worth spending 3-4 days lazing in Goa.
North Goa is not a city but a collection of resorts and other sites,The beaches are great for sun loungers but the sea tends to be a bit rough often with an undertow so watch the kids.
However there is more to north Goa, Panajim for example has some good examples of old Portuguese houses and the market is fun. Old Goa and Divar Island make a change from the beach Remember Goa is quite small so get on a bus and spend a day or two in South Goa where there are still some quiet beaches. Take the train and go out of state to Hampi to experience the temples and Palaces of the area.
Must place to visit atleast once in a life time. Beautiful beaches and friendly people. Nice food, specially if you like sea food and dont miss out the Goan Fish Curry !!!
It's a beautiful place to visit , people are nice . Beautiful sandy beaches unlike Grand Hyatt... Where you just get to see part of ocean and beach is very stone filled .
Ok for sunshine.
SEQUERIUM BEACH IS THE BEST CLEAN, QUIET BEACH TO BE VISITED IN THE AFTERNOON TIME AFTER LUNCH & BAGA BEACH GOOD AT THE EVENING FOR RELAX WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS.
If u are visiting Goa, then North Goa is the best place to be, it has some of the best beaches, full of life, awesome eating joints and ofcourse shopping.
Best beaches is Calangute, Baga, Candolim, Anjuna and Vagator... Loved Vagator for some of the spectacular views it has, a must visit place. There are cheap taxis to take you around different places but always ensure to bargain as the asking price is always on the higher end. Important : there are many folks looming around this area giving you some scratch card then asking you to join 90 mins seminar at one of the hotel, this is all gimmick to get you sign in for holidays packages which are nothing but waste of time, please STAY AWAY. We personally wasted 3 hours here since I had no previous info on it, hence sharing with u all.
Many Russian group tours, the waves is much too strong for the children, south goa is definately a better option, much more relaxed and less crowed groups
Funky little beach/ hippy town. Saturday night markets are an experience not to be missed and the weekly Wednesday Anjuna markets are also great to see.
Lots on offer for what ever your holiday needs are
Though i visited Goa for beaches n sea, i was really fascinated by great architecture of churches. Vegetation n greenery makes this look even better.
North goa beaches are ok n offer water sports, night life, music. Cabs are very expensive and people don't feel ashamed to charge over n above the list prices.
Nice beautiful place to explore ....but would require to rent a scooty or car to remain independant and mobile to visit the various far flung places.
Scooty Rental is cheap approx Rs 300 for 24 hours and hardly any hassles associated with it.
Nightlife at its best and all kind of person u will meet at this place very happening and very active nightlife adventures you can do out there.
Very nice place to visit when u have time. Very cheap place with lot of activities. Friendly nature people and very nice food everywhere.
Nice market. Nice culture and history. Really Love place. You will Love GOA.
Its crowded, but things from food to drinking are very cheap. most places serve good food and plenty of shopping options are available.
its best to drive your own vehicle here for reaching destinations quickly.
North from Calangute and Baga, there are more quiet places. Little towns and beaches, that don't have that much traffic and noise.
If you are looking for a really relaxing trip, take the beaches more south from Panaji.
Best place to relax and enjoy ....come this place a number of times but u will never get bored.....the best thing about this place
north goa is full of beaches. i recommend calangute beach, baga beach panaji city, aguada fort, and if possible dudh sagar falls.
Comprises of great beaches like Calangute,Baga,Candolim,Vagator etc ... Good place for dining, relaxation and nightlife as well.
Place suited for all I should say. Because there is something for everyone.
This place is very good for fun loving people. Also one can find crowdy beaches as well as lonely Beaches as per their interest.
Its a place to enjoy the night life and the beaches. This is cost effective when compared to Bangkok and abroad travel.
You can enjoy a life being at abroad at goa. Travelling next month again
If you looking for a happening night life in a beach town the you should visit North Goa especially Calangute to Baga
Lovely, lively and happening part of Goa. Baga beach is one of the most vibrant and happening place in north Goa.
In north Goa I found Arambol beach to be most beautiful in all beaches which i visited. It was an awesome place.
Baga is quite crowded place and enjoyable for those who like to have fun in crowd. Chapora Fort and Agauda Fort were nice places to visit. This place is usually to have fun at beach.
There are plenty of things to do like visiting Mapusa market, anjuna flea market and apora market at the beach
