Are you interested in the areas of Goa? Looking at the map of this Indian state, you can see that it is divided into two parts..
North Goa is interesting for tourists due to the following resorts:
- Anjuna: visit the Flea Market (shopping for souvenirs, jewelry and handicrafts) and take a photo with Portuguese colonial-style houses in the background; in the beach strip you can not only swim and sunbathe, but also spend time in the Curlie club’s. As for the best club in Anjuna, this is Paradiso (there are the best DJs here; entrance ticket to the party costs $ 5-10).
- Vagator: it is worth paying attention to the main attraction - the ruins of the Chapora fort (you can admire the remains of the defensive wall and the view of the surroundings that opens from here). In addition, Vagator has 3 beaches, the most popular of which is Small Vagator, where you can find the Nine Bar and the Shiva Carving sculpture carved into the rock..
South Goa will delight travelers with the following resorts:
- Majorda: on its beaches (surrounded by fruit trees and coconut trees) you can see crabs, trepangs, sea snakes and urchins, beach volleyball and water sports. As for the architecture of Majorda, guests will be offered to explore the Church of Our Lady (16th century; elements of Catholic and Jesuit cultures are traced) and the Temple of the Great Mother (Hindus hold rituals here).
- Dona Paula: it is recommended to rush here for couples and surfers in love (the local beach is surrounded by rocky shores). In addition, you will be able to enjoy music here regardless of the time of day in the dance hall. “Lido”, visit the Marine Biological Museum (famous for its collection of marine fauna and flora), see the residence of the head of the Goa government, actively spend time in the sports club (in November, guests are invited to a festival in honor of water sports), buy leather goods, Indian trinkets and other goods in stores and shops surrounding the beach area.
Where to stay for tourists
Accommodation facilities in North Goa (youth companies, trans-party lovers and supporters of budget vacations flock here) will delight tourists with good service and affordable prices, and upscale expensive hotels are concentrated in South Goa (most of them are focused on family vacations with children, so they provide everything you need for such groups of tourists).
