Goa, home to India’s most handsome beaches has invented its own way of life. Generous white sand stretches for miles along the sun-kissed Arabian Sea scored with palms leaning forlornly in the breeze. A step away from the shore, colonial whitewashed houses and baroque churches mix in with hippy markets dating back to the 60s while buzzing thatched bars hum from dusk until dawn.
North Goa’s beaches; Mandrem, Ashvem and Morjim dissolve into each other as they trail down the coast. The course of the hazy sun and the relentless rush of high tide determine the day’s rhythm. Local fishermen haul in their catch of the day next to seaside restaurants serving lassis and sweet pancakes while casual volleyball players limber up, all adhering to susegad, meaning quiet, a concept determined by the first Portuguese settlers.
Skip the ravers and the trance parties and head further south where a laissez fair attitude is whispered across the stylish shores. Here some of the smartest hotels have taken up residence garnering status for their glamour and seclusion. It’s a slow pace of life only known to a bohemian set who can’t get enough of the good life.
