Situated on India’s west coast, Goa offers a unique blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures with miles of long sandy beaches, colonial whitewashed churches and emerald green paddy fields. Offering a laid-back charm and relatively untouched by mass tourism, South Goa’s beaches are lined with sleepy fishing villages, grand colonial houses and verdant farmland.
