Let’s face it – searching for paradise is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Will you opt for the powder-soft sands and laid-back lifestyle of the Caribbean, the desert-island style beauty of the Maldives, or the jet-set lifestyle of Miami? All of these destinations are beautiful in their own right, and each can quite easily serve up their own version of paradise. But there’s plenty more where they came from, and one magical destination that never fails to impress is Goa.
Located on India’s south-west coast, Goa is a simply stunning place that’s oozing with exotic appeal and fascinating culture. Coconut-laden palms, porcelain-white sands and bath-warm waters make up just some of the ingredients of this wonderful holiday destination, while others include its blend of cheerful resorts, high-octane watersports and its array of fascinating day trips. You could be sitting under the shade of a rustling palm, watching local fishermen bring in the catch of the day, before enjoying a refreshing sundowner at the end of the day and dining on fresh fish or hearty Goan cuisine in a quiet cosy restaurant. One thing’s for sure, holidays in Goa are pretty special.
By travelling with a largescale tour operator – for instance if you book with Thomas Cook – you’ll find lively resorts like Calangute Beach among the choices on offer. This is one of the most popular resorts, where you can try your hand at watersports and enjoy the exotic concoctions served up in thatched beach bars. And if you want to experience the lesser-known side of holidays in Goa, why not cruise the Mandovi River or join a local excursion to discover the lively, bustling city of Panjim?
Whatever you do and whichever experience tickles your fancy, a holiday in Goa is like a little slice of paradise…
