Goa holiday highlights

North Goa’s world renowned coast is scattered with stunning palm-lined beaches which are backed by lively resort towns, such as Calangute and Candolim. The region’s largest and busiest beach, which has been attracting international visitors since the heady days of the 1960s, can be found in Calangute, while the town of Baga attracts those in search of a lively nightlife. Slightly less frenetic and more relaxing than its popular neighbouring resort is the village of Candolim, which is frequented by visitors in search of sun, sea and sand.

The majority of our featured Goa resorts are scattered along the less developed coast of South Goa. Within easy reach of the bustling towns of North Goa the tranquil and often almost completely deserted beaches of the South are seemingly a whole world away. Escape to this paradisiacal spot – the perfect end to your Indian exploration.
