Wave goodbye to a dull, rainy winter, and head off on a cheap trip to the sunny southern Indian state of Goa – just a ten-hour flight from the UK. With beaches, jungle, ruins, music, and great food, Goa is the gateway to India for British holidaymakers.
Goa is a land of happy contradictions. It’s as bustling and lively as any Indian destination, but it’s easy to find a quiet spot for some rest and relaxation on the long and varied coastline.
The beaches towards the north of Goa, such as Arambol, Anjuna and Panjim, have hotels to suit every type of traveller, and are famous for their relaxed, hippie vibe and wonderful beach parties.
Don’t miss the huge market at Anjuna, an exciting and chaotic flea market where you can pick up stunning Indian rugs, bedspreads and jewellery for fantastic prices. Just don’t be surprised if someone approaches offering ‘ear cleaning.’ It’s a local habit, but a stern refusal should send him on his way!
If you plan to escape the crowds, holidays to Goa are a perfect choice. Travel to the south of the island to quiet spots such as Agonda beach, for some yoga tuition and an ayurvedic massage.
Goa is as vibrant as any Indian state, but its Portuguese colonial heritage has left a number of beautiful churches and quaint old towns, such as Goa Old Town.
It also has a wonderfully diverse cuisine. Much of Goa is vegetarian, and the heavy curries we are used to in the UK are replaced with delicious lightly spiced vegetable and seafood dishes.
