Goa, the land of sand, surf, and serenity, is a holiday destination in
India, that appeals much to all age groups. As we headed to this most beautiful beach, on a monsoon get-away, the enchanting moments captured for eternity.
Lush greenery, languorous sea waves lapping against the hill-side. Or as
you turn down-hill, the breath-taking view of a vast, green field with a
neat, white-washed church in the midst of it is soul-stirring. As we traversed the smooth, winding roads of the city, beautiful Portuguese style villa-like cottages, in vibrant colors on both sides of the tree-lined roads look so elegant.
Spending ample time on the beaches of Goa is the best way to enjoy the place and feel its vibe. Numerous, colorfully decorated shacks(restaurants) dot the marvelous Calangute beach (one of the cleanest beaches), reverberating with music and hordes of Indian and foreign tourists.

Before you realize it the gentle murmur of the waves and the subtle blowing wind may surely lull you to sleep!

A trip to any place is incomplete without a taste of their local food. One specialty of Goanese cuisine is the `vindaloo’, which is a type of spicy curry in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. This dish is quite popular here and in the surrounding Konkan region. Another local favorite is the delicious prawn curry cooked in coconut milk and other spices, this goes well with rice.

Indulge In Shopping
As with most beach destinations, the entrance to this beach too has hordes of shops selling local stuff, souvenirs, and trinkets at reasonable prices.

It’s huge malls are quite popular with tourists. Clothes, footwear, electronic items, variety of chocolates, handicrafts and souvenirs at reasonable prices are worth buying.
As true of destinations having a tropical climate, the weather quickly transformed from clear blue skies to one overcast with dark clouds and strong winds. Caught unaware in the sudden downpour and without umbrellas or raincoats, we were completely drenched. A word of advice to travelers planning a trip to this part of the planet is to always carry rain gears, as the weather can be unpredictable.
Beaches are my all-time favorite holiday destination, bolstering physical and mental well-being. And If it is to the most beautiful beaches in the world the experience is definitely enhanced.
