Our fun and frolic goa trip started with spending a day at North Goa. This is one of the happening sides of Goa which was at the top of our list. We started the day by exploring the pristine tropical beauty of Vagator beach, Baga beach, Calangute beach and the Candolim beach. Not just the scenic beauty is worth exploring, but apart from that there are some of the best water sports which are worth experiencing. And there is no doubt that the seafood in Goa is something which cannot be missed.
2. South Goa – Enthralling Dolphin Tour
On the 3rd day, it was time to take a tour of South Goa which was all about exploring the spiritual places and surreal beaches for which this side of Goa is famous. Starting with the tour, we visited Miramar beach. The main highlight of the day was the dolphin tour which was quite a different experience for us. After that we also went to see some of the historical churches of Goa which includes the Bom Jesus Basilica.The best part about Goa apart from the beaches is its beach shacks which serve some of the delicious seafood dishes and beer.
3. Goa – Time For Some Exciting Water Sports
When in Goa, one thing which one cannot miss is the exciting water sports which are placed by the beach. We had the best time experiencing these enthralling rides which included skiing, parasailing and water scooters. This was just the perfect element to our friends vacation in Goa.
