Here you can dine on the beach, with freshly caught fish served beautifully, whilst you watch the sunset from your chair. Life does not get much better than this.

Travel Highlights Goa

Basilica of Bom Jesus
This world heritage monument built in 1695 is probably the most visited tourist sight in Goa. The basilica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier and is located about 10 km from the city of Panjim.

Beaches
Anjuna beach - in the north of Goa, is the most the most happening beach of Goa. There are lots of places to eat and it's the place for moonlight parties. Calangute beach - there are around a dozen of water sports operators here. With their help and services, enjoy anyone of the following - parasailing, water skiing, banana and bump rides and also wind surfing. Alternatively, you can also set out for a dolphin or crocodile spotting tour, island trips, fishing expedition and river cruises. Palolem beach - the most southern beach of Goa is also considered one of the most beautiful beaches. It's great for relaxing and enjoying a bit of water sports in form of canoe rides and dolphin spotting trips.

Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary
The sanctuary is Goa's largest wildlife preserve and lies in the foothills of the Western Ghat mountains. Known as a paradise for birdwatchers, this park is one of the best places to look for animals. There are several highlights like Devil's Canyon gorge and the Dudhsagar waterfalls.

Boating & wildlife cruises
If there's one outdoor activity which should be near the top of everyone's list it is a boat ride on one in and around Goa. From leisurely sea cruises and river cruise on board the Santa Monica to hovercraft skimming along the surface of Mandovi river, this is one of the best ways to see the natural side of Goa. You can rent a pedal boat or funky aqua bike at Mayem lake, Ourem creek or the Dona Paula jetty to do some boating yourself, or let the luxury cruisers of Santa Monica Yachts take you on one of their river tours, which include a cultural performance to add another dimension to your excursion.
Wildlife cruises - a great way to explore the backwaters of Goa is to take an organised wildlife boat tour. The two most popular excursions involve searching for crocodiles and watching the dolphins jump around. Croc tours focus on the rivers, where it's more likely you'll see an abundance of birdlife and other creatures along with the elusive crocodiles that live in these murky waters. Dolphins also live in the Mandovi river, near the estuary, offering a rare opportunity for visitors to see a freshwater dolphin in its native habitat.

Doodhsagar Waterfalls
Believed to be amongst the highest falls in the world, these magnificent waterfalls are located in a blissful tropical jungle with crisscrossing streams. A steep plunge of 2000 feet down in the wooded mountains makes for a breathtaking sight.

Fort Aguada
Set along the Mandovi river's estuary, this imposing fort was built in 1612 by the Portuguese as a defence against the Dutch and the Marathas. Throughout its 450-year history, Fort Aguada is the only fortress that was never once conquered, perhaps thanks to its massively thick and high walls. One of its highlights is a 13-metre lighthouse that once used an oil lamp to guide seafarers.

Mapusa
This small village at the foot of Mount Alto is the centre of life in North Goa. The main attraction here is its Friday market. During this popular weekly event, locals come from all over the city to buy and sell a wide variety of items.

Old Goa
About 9kms east of Panjim is the historic centre of the city and UNESCO World Heritage site, known as Old Goa. This charming, traditional part of town is a great place to explore the many cathedrals and churches that the Portuguese built during their reign. A few of the truly classic old buildings have been converted into cultural and historic museums that are run by the Archaeological Survey of India.

Panjim (Panaji)
Capital of Goa, Panjim is a lovely little town along the banks of the Mandovi river. The town has done an excellent job preserving its Portuguese heritage, and visitors can wander the narrow winding lanes and admire the old houses with their overhanging balconies. A number of pleasant cafés and bars can be found in this district, where the signs still have Portuguese language written on the shop signs.

Spice Plantations
Situated in the Ponda region, the plantation is engaged in producing spice powders and mixes out of pepper, cardamom, tamarind etc. The plantation offers tours and an authentic local meal served on a banana leaf.
