Beaches of Goa

Standard

Goa – the name says it all. Its a place to relax, rest and enjoy. Goa as someone rightly said is the Miami of India šŸ™‚ I usually visit Goa almost every year, if not every alternate year for sure.

This time when we visited Goa, although it was a very short trip, we stayed around different places, Colva, which is near Madgaon and Vagator, which is in the northern part of Goa. It was not a very long stay though but it was surely a good and memorable one.

Few places we visited includes,

  • Colva Beach
  • Devaki Krishna Ravalnath Temple – Marcela, Goa
  • Vagator Beach
  • Calangute Beach
  • Anjuna Beach
  • Aguada Fort
  • Chapora Fort
  • Palolem Beach

Unfortunately the time we reached Aguada fort, it was closed so we had to see it only from outside. I don’t know why such tourist places get closed by 5.30PM like a government office šŸ˜¦

Aguada Jail Road Beach

Pardon, if the naming the picture wrongly. Just below the Aguada fort, there is a jail and this was captured just there. The sea there was very rash but it was beautiful, I collected many pebbles there which are in my aquarium now

What you see behind is a jail and I never want to get into it:)

Climb to the Chapora Fort

Climb to the Chapora Fort

Chapora fort, a beautiful and must visit place if you are in northern part of Goa but be ready to climb the hill, its a very steep 500-600 meters that you may have to climb and its very slippery due to rocks so be carefull

Palolem Beach

This one, Palolem beach is the beach you should visit if you do not like crowds, usually this beach is very less crowded as not many people know about it. The beach is located exactly at the Goa-Karnataka border and very near from Karwar. The sea there is very shallow and steep so have to be very careful but the water is very clean and cold.
