Holidays in Goa: the best hotels
We have not yet seen a man who would not want to get to Goa at least once. You can relax here all year round. Traditionally, the lowest demand for tours in Goa is from June to November, when the state rains. But air temperature throughout the year varies from 23 to 33 degrees, so Goa is always warm!
Inexperienced tourists imagine a vacation at this resort as an uncontrolled beach party from dusk to dawn. But this is only one side of the coin (we admit that without parties Goa is not Goa). Here you will also find desert beaches where you can spend all day in peace and quiet, practice surfing. Goa is also a storehouse of cultural attractions! We strongly recommend that you visit Panaji, the state capital. Here you will see how faiths and nationalities are closely intertwined in India. And it is in Panaji that the best restaurants in all of India are located.
120 km from the legendary Arambol you can visit Dudhsagar – one of the most magnificent waterfalls in India. Dudhsagar falls from a height of 310 meters, and a stream of water is surrounded by small white splashes. Because of this, all the water mass falling from the cliff resembles a snow-white flowing cover. It turns out a very picturesque picture! The road to the waterfall runs through the jungle and untouched nature. You can overcome this path in jeeps. And the journey will cause no less delight than the waterfall itself.
Three popular myths about holidays in Goa
Goa has a northern and southern part. Among tourists, there are certain myths regarding recreation in different parts of the state.
Myth 1. Southern Goa is more expensive than northern.
Southern states have more expensive hotels. It’s true. But regarding the cost of food, renting a bike the difference is not big.
Myth 2. The beaches of South Goa are cleaner than in the north.
Visually, maybe it is. But here the fact is that on the northern beaches mostly gray or large yellow sand. And on the beaches from Vagator to Arambol, sand is generally mixed with clay. Whereas the beaches of South Goa are almost all with fine, light sand creaking underfoot. Because of this, even the water on the south coast seems cleaner.
Myth 3. In the south, Goa is calmer than in the north.
In general, it all depends not even on the region of the state, but on a particular beach. On the southern beaches, there are definitely less parties. And the public in these hotels is different. More mature Europeans. But young people prefer beaches in the northern part. But this does not mean that the beaches in the north are “not calm.” The most hippy and informal place is Arambol Beach. But in South Goa, on the beaches of Palolem, Putnam and Agonda, you can also meet the most motley audience!
