Welcome to Goa
Welcome to Goa! The land where the flow of heady feni never ceases and revelry pays no heed to day or night. The land of hectic activity and soporific marijuana calm. The land of warm blazing days and cool soothing nights. The land of wild rave parties and long lazy afternoon siestas. A land also of endless stretches of soft sand, nut-brown friendly people and excited busy bazaars. Goa, mother to seven rivers of the Sahyadri range and full of perfect contradictions.
Capital : Panjim or Panaji
Main Attractions : Beaches, Churches & Seafood
Best Time to Visit : October to February
Languages Spoken : Marathi, Konkani, & English

For a first visit to India, travel in Goa is highly recommended as it offers diversity and the elements that are too many, the very essence of India - superb sights, reins of Portuguese culture, sun, sand and beaches and above all a great, carefree and warm travel experience.Goa is a land known for its atmosphere, its wonderfully fresh seafood cuisine, its sense of joie de vivre, its people, its churches and temples, and last but not the least for its beaches. Pale gold sand stretching for miles on end, fringed with coconut palms, isolated coves separated by cliffs reaching into the sea. The sun, the sand and the surf create an enchanting wonderland, which is too hard to resist. Beauty can be quite inebriating and here you have so much of it - in the golden sands, the blue waters, the sylvan forests and the lakes. Goa is about mood and that too a joyous one and an experience that can simply be defined as memorableBeauty can be quite inebriating and in Goa you have so much of it - in the golden sands, the blue waters, the sylvan forests and the lakes. Visiting Goa usually covers the normal tourist circuits including one or two beaches, shopping / hopping at Mapusa, and Madgoan or Panajim. But there is more. In Goa, you have to put in more days to fully savor the place, the pleasure of discovering a crab under a stone, churches of Old Goa, temples in small villages, and the peace of watching a quiet sunset on a beach. The whole experience is miraculous in distressing oneself. Such is the beauty and magic of Goa, which has more than 100 km of coastline and the sea has different shades to offer at various places. One can rest assured that the mood of the sea will not be repeated in Goa.

Beaches in Goa
Goa is blessed with a long and smooth coastline and that makes for great beaches. North Goa is laden with miles and miles of sandy beaches to enjoy a host of beach bumming activities like water sports, beach parties, and hanging out at beach shacks with a cold beer. Must visit beaches in Goa are Calangute, Baga, Vagator, Benaulim, and Anjuna, to name a few. Don’t miss the flea market on Wednesdays at Anjuna!

Culture of Goa
One can observe Portuguese, Konkani, Islamic and Hindu influences in the culture of Goa. Goan culture is happily laidback enabling travelers to relax and unwind. The merry pace of life enjoyed by the Goans is surely something to envy. On the other hand, Goans also like to let their hair down to party like there is no tomorrow!
Festivals of Goa
Goa is quintessentially the land of celebrations. There is a wide variety of fairs and festivals that the Goans take part in. These include Christian, Hindu, Islamic and Dutch celebrations. Some of the most popular fairs and festivals of Goa are Feast of Three Kings, Christmas Carnival, Goa Carnival, and Bonderam Festival.
Temples of Goa
As much as Goa is known for its churches, Goa is also famous for its temples. With a substantial Hindu population, it is but natural for Goa to have some gorgeous temples. Some of these are Temple of Shri Mahadeva, Shri Ramnath Group of Temples, Shri Gomanteshwar Devasthan, Bhagwati Temple, and more.
Wildlife in Goa
Even the birds and animals love Goa! Wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy a wonderful time in Goa as they visit the parks and sanctuaries it has to offer. The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is a must visit. Other wildlife hotspots worth a dekko are Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary, Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary and Catigao Wildlife Sanctuary.
