Stretches of silver sand wet by a rush of blue waters, the sky mirroring the sea below, the strumming of guitars from distant taverns, riverside promenades, white churches resting against green paddy fields and coconut groves, international cuisine with local flavour, sumptuous seafood, exotic fruits and intoxicating local drinks, longer days of sun, sand and seas.

Who wouldn’t want to go to Goa? With its near-endless beaches, spice bazaars and laid-back attitude, India’s smallest state seems to have something for everyone. Whether you’re seeking luxury, tranquility, hedonism or hippy-chic, holidays to Goa deliver it all. Goa has 105km of Arabian Sea coastline, where golden sands and swaying palms are interrupted now and then by dramatic, fortress-topped headlands. Inland is a lushness of paddy fields and coconut groves rising to the waterfall-tinkled Western Ghats range. Meanwhile, the state’s Portuguese heritage, and subsequent melding of Indian and European cultures, has created a particularly rich and delicious destination. In short, Goa holidays are both intoxicatingly exotic yet blissfully relaxed.
