Best Beaches of Goa That You Just Can Not Miss!

Surf, sun and sand are what come to our mind when we hear the word Goa. However, there is more to Goa than just beaches. That said, this former Portuguese province has some of the best beaches in India. Goa is divided into two parts, North and South. The best beaches are said to be in the North. South, on the other hand, is calm, serene and less frequented.

Most Goa tour packages will cover the following beaches, which are suppose to be the most popular among visitors.

Baga

Baaagaaa! We all have heard of Baga, haven’t we? No Goa holiday, is complete without a trip to Baga. One of the busiest beaches of Goa, Baga has promising nightlife, beach parties, and food. Visit Baga for the scrumptious food served at shacks like Britto’s, and dance through the night against the fabulous backdrop of the beach. You can also try your hand and yes voice at Karaoke!

Candolim

Candolim Beach is very near the Calangute and Baga stretch and is home to several shacks, resorts and great food. The waters are clearer than Baga and Calangute and so is the sand. The beach is popular for its many scrub-covered sand dunes. The Dive Goa activity takes place here.

Calangute

This is one of the most visited beaches of Goa and is also known as the Queen of Goa beaches. People come here for shopping, drinking, eating and sunbathing. Tourists can also enjoy water-scooter rides and parasailing. All Goa tour packages take you on a tour of Calangute! The famous Goa flea market is held every Wednesday at Anjuna, which is the neighbouring beach

Sinquerim

At a stone’s throw distance from Fort Aguada and Hotel Taj is the Sinquerim Beach. People come here to indulge in water rides and water sports. Banana ride, snorkeling, parasailing are the other water-based activities that are popular on this beach. Those who want to spend a quiet moment or two can simply lie down and laze on the spectacular stretch of sand on this beach.

Vagator

Vagator Beach is calm and peaceful. It is the perfect getaway if you are looking for a secluded beach to spend the day at. There are several resorts overlooking Vagator but a very few beach shacks on the beach. Tourists come to Vagator to grab a bite or two at Thalassa overlooking the beach or spend a lazy day away from the bustling North Goa beaches.

Morjim

Morjim Beach is slightly away from the popular North Goan hub and promises a peaceful beach experience. Set out on long strolls down the beach and feel the waves kiss your feet. Build sandcastles with your kids, or simply hold hands with your beloved and gaze into the horizon. A few shacks that stay closed during monsoons serve authentic Goan food and beer and cocktails. This could be the perfect destination for Goa honeymoon packages!

South Goa beaches

The southern part of Goa does not find its way on everyone’s itinerary, but if you are looking for nothing but the beach and beer then it is South Goa. There are several budget options available here for families and single travellers.

South Goa is home to Polem Beach, Colva Beach, Palolem Beach, Majorda Beach, Agonda Beach, Benaulim Beach, Bogmalo Beach, Betul Beach, Butterfly Beach and Patnem Beach. You will find the South Goa beaches less crowded and the water is cleaner compared to North Goa.

These places promise a serene experience, away from the buzzing and glittering Goa. It is perfect for candlelight dinners and long evening walks.
