This place has always my heart no matter how many times I have been here. When you want to enjoy a slow travel, an unplugged experience and a serene beauty, you can simply be lost in this rendezvous with nature.

This trip to South Goa was a week of tropical escapade with just picturesque beaches and majestic sunsets. A holiday with sandy toes, glimpses into Portuguese culture, undiluted lush greenery and a surreal romantic vibe all around.

Things to do:

Chill at Benaulim Beach: This was my personal favourite beach and since it was nearby to our resort, we would go there for watching beautiful sunrise in the morning and again in the evening for having dinner by its romantic shoreline.Its quite clean, pretty and filled with delicious restaurants with a vibrant nightlife Relax at Agonda Beach:Agonda is a lesser known beach of south Goa. When you are in a mood to relax and rejuvenate, you can make your way to Agonda, click some pretty pictures and enjoy the serene vibes here Trek to the Cola: A hidden gem:Cola beach is a beautiful gem. Though the trek here is bumpy with some rough steps but at the end of this adventure you will find an amazing view.Cola Lagoon: It has a blue shallow lagoon great for swimming or just chilling around with your beer
