Goa holidays take you to India's newest and smallest state. A former Portuguese colony, the area is a fascinating mix of culture. Located on the Arabian Sea it is has stunning tropical beaches, tasty cuisine, great shopping and a wide variety of sightseeing opportunities, including visiting an elephant camp.
Goa holidays are heaven sent for beach lovers. With mile after mile of sun-bleached sands lapped by the clear waters of the Arabian Sea, Goa holidays offer a tropical paradise. Lie back on secluded beaches or head for lively resorts with water sports and a gregarious nightlife. The choice is yours.
Hotels, apartments, villas and beach huts provide good accommodation that caters for all budgets and restaurants cater for all tastes. If you enjoy curry, you are in for a real treat as the choice is vast. Conservative western taste buds are provided for by the larger hotels and restaurants. While there are a good number of shops, most people choose to shop in the markets, not only for the goods but because of the atmosphere, the sounds and the aromas. The market is certainly the place to go for your holiday gifts and souvenirs. There is so much choice that it is important to remember that the baggage allowance is non-negotiable and the cost of excess baggage is far from cheap. Goa has nightlife to suit all moods from truly frenetic to totally tranquil.
Goa holidays can be as relaxed or as active as you wish as they offer a wide variety of recreational activities and sightseeing opportunities. They range from safaris into the jungle to the Portuguese architecture of Panaji, and from elephant camps to river cruises.
