A Carefree Holiday Destination

Found this guide helpful

I have been to Goa four times in last 9 Years Three times to North Goa and once in South Goa. While North Goa is happening and full of Activities South Goa is peaceful and quite Goa, is heaven for every traveller. Live the kind of life you always dreamt of. Wear what ever you dreamt of, eat and drink at your choice, what more any one would want. People around you are least bothered about your activities and your outfits. A great place for every traveller of any age, there are places to visit for each kind. First of all hire a vehicle of your choice (Ranging from two wheeler to a for wheeler) and remember to carry your Driving License. I would recommend everyone to spend a Saturday night in Goa, visiting Saturday night market at Baga or Mackies market and then make way for the most happening club , Club Cubana. Keep a night reserve for Tito's (Night Club) too. Have a supper at any of the good Beach Shack. Then there are many beaches to visit. Happening, popular and crowded beaches in north Goa are Baga and Calangute. Here you can also enjoy water sports Soft,nice and quite beaches are Anjuna and Vagatore. Get up early any day for a Dolphin ride near Aguada fort ( Reach Before 9:30 AM) One can also book a south Goa trip (Which is full day) from any of the Local travel Agencies. One can Take help from the Hotel's Front Desk. For Pure Vegetarians I would suggest you to stay around Calangute as there are many pure vegetarians outlets.

    One of the Religious place to Visit in Goa is Mangeshi Temple. Dedicated to Lord Shiva is one of the most visited temple of Goa. A caution for Girls, the authorities don't allow to enter the temple premises with short dresses.
