About Goa

The sun-kissed beaches and sandy shores of Goa attract millions of tourists from around the world. But, it isn’t all about the beaches. A former Portuguese colony, Goa is a kaleidoscopic medley of cultures, histories and experiences topped off with delectable local cuisine and pure vintage charm.

While different beaches and the hidden coves of Goa are some of its biggest draws, the place is dotted with old colonial mansions, Portuguese ruins, impressive baroque architecture, stunning churches and spice farms.

To get around in Goa, you have the option of taking a bus, taxi or an auto. But, hiring a two-wheeler is one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to travel in Goa.

Goa is great all year round, but the best time to visit it is during the months of December, January and February, when the famous Goa Carnival takes place.
