More about Goa

When you've had your fill of sightseeing, and want to relax on the sands, you'll be spoilt for choice in Goa. Calangute is the busiest of the Goan resorts, and the place to choose if you want vibrant nightlife and a buzzing atmosphere. Next door you have Baga, a former fishing village that has held onto a quieter feel. Candolim is a great all-rounder of a resort, and possibly the best choice for families. Here you'll find miles of bright white sands, as well as water sports, shops and cafes on the seafront for you to enjoy.

For a change of pace away from the beaches, Old Goa in the capital city of Panjim is a mesmerising place for a wander, and you'll find some of the most popular historical attractions of Goa. For those who are simply craving a laidback beach break, Benaulim is one of the best resorts for a piece of the Goan quiet life.
