Things to See and Do in Goa India

Goa is a very popular destination for many travelers to India, from honeymooners to backpackers to anyone and everyone in between. One of India’s most affluent states, Goa is bordered on the west by the Arabian Sea, offering up beautiful beaches and the chance to enjoy cruises and other water sports (or relax poolside and play some slots games online on your laptop). There’s plenty to enjoy beyond the beaches as well, including exploring stunning waterfall, lakes, and natural parks; numerous churches and temples are sprinkled throughout Goa as well for tourists looking to take in some of the historic architecture and heritage sites.

As far as beaches, there are plenty to choose from including Calangute beach, Baga beach, Anjuna beach, Dona Paula beach, Colva beach, and Miramar beach. Sprinkled with coconut groves, luxurious hotels, and plenty of restaurants, bars, and clubs, the beaches of Goa provide a stunning backdrop for a relaxing, tranquil break from the everyday hustle and bustle of the world. World-class resorts mean you don’t have to skimp on luxury, either, with every single facet of your trip accounted for and provided.

For visitors looking to get away from the beach scene and explore the countryside, there are numerous parks, rivers, lakes and water falls to explore, as well as tours of villages and spice farms for those looking for a peek into everyday country life. Goa also hosts its own Carnaval celebration each year, a mixture of Portuguese traditions from when Portugal ruled the area along with Hindu themes and elements, providing an eclectic mix that thousands of visitors come to enjoy each year from around the world.

If you’re looking for a different sort of run, Goa is also the only location in India where casinos are allowed, so you won’t have to play video poker online but can enjoy the real thing live instead. Most casinos in Goa are offshore on boats and luxury yachts, with slot machines available as well as other popular table games like baccarat, blackjack, and roulette. With the success of Macau in attracting tourists and gambling dollars, Goa has greatly expanded the number of offshore casinos in recent years, with an eye towards possibly doing the same with land-based casinos in the future.
