Goa

For a complete change of pace

Goa is a fabulous choice for an opening to India. Enjoy the mixture of Catholic churches, endless Hindu temples, busy markets, historical architecture, numerous forts along the shoreline and above all a beach lover’s paradise with miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Goa, sitting next to the Arabian Sea brings warm pleasant weather year round; however the monsoon season between June and September brings much needed spectacular changes from the high temperatures. With its coconut palms Goa makes an excellent for families and couples seeking a peaceful holiday.

With the stresses and strains of modern day life, sometimes we are all in need of a complete change. For anyone who is looking for a tranquil destination which is worlds away from their everyday life, a simple holiday to Goa can provide that answer.

In recent years in particular, Goa has been awarded a reputation of being a paradise destination; covered in palm trees and pretty little villages. There is a special spirit in Goa and an incredibly laid back atmosphere and it was this that first attracted people to the destination in the 60s and 70s.

The scenery you can experience on holidays in Goa is truly breathtaking. It’s not only the stunning beaches that get tourists excited in Goa; there are some beautiful lakes and waterfalls to discover too. The Arvalem waterfall is a particular favourite and provides a romantic spot for couples to enjoy. It’s worth having a look at the nearby Rudreshwar Temple during a trip to the waterfall too and to even perhaps go exploring the caves.

People continue to travel to Goa to this day; for calm, relaxation and escape and as a result the destination has continued to grow and thrive. The locals here enjoy a relaxed way of life. They are happy go lucky and don’t seem to suffer any stresses or worries of modern day living and this attitude is extremely contagious providing the ultimate relaxing break.

Goa is situated on the west coast and is the smallest state in India. With plenty of variety in the destination, whether you are looking for a cheap getaway or a little more luxury, you can find the right holiday for you.

Information & Facts

Climate

Holidays to Goa have increased in popularity because of the state’s warm climate. For most of the year, the climate is hot and the temperatures reach a high in May when they can hit around 35 degrees. June tells a different story though, with the monsoon rain arriving. This cools the temperatures and lasts until September. Goa’s winters fall between mid December and February. During these times, temperatures reach 29 degrees during the days.

Eating Out

The food in Goa is fresh and really tasty. Here you will normally be served dishes such as rice with fish curry or exotic vegetable stew. Goan food is not surprisingly, usually flavoured with a variety of spices and chilli peppers and coconut features heavily in a lot of the traditional recipes too. A holiday in Goa is not complete unless you have completely indulged in these delicious recipes.
