Hello isha , I will be happy to answer your travel queries from my experiences 😊👍
*Famous for its beaches, nightlife and Portuguese culture Goa is rightly called party capital of India. Goa has numerous beaches and both parts beaches of Goa electrifying and party animal's heaven.
*north goa attract more people than South Goa if you love surrounded by people and touristic atmosphere then you should definitely visit North Goa. the best of them are Candolim beach, Baga ,Anjuna , Calangute,morjim ,arambol and vagator beach.
*on the other side South Goa beaches are tranquil, they have hidden peace are more clean quiet and mostly visited by foreigners the best of them are agonda, palolem, butterfly,patnem, cola beach . is also famous for its Portuguese past churches cathedral and forts whereas South Goa is heaven for wildlife enthusiasts with its distinct flora and fauna, it's a great place for nature lovers .
*Eventhough both the places are safe but still make sure you don't go to some extreme isolated parts there at nightime ,there won't be any problem in travelling in day.
*it's as safe as you make it ,stay sober,drug free,make sure lights if your rental are working,watch for many potholes and trenches in road, stop for no one except police and enjoy the nightlife fully 😊 I have a small suggestion for you ,I just checked online and found that there are some great deals for Goa available on tripoto itself, do check this link

As far as I saw during my visit, it was perfectly safe for girls because even at about 2-3am, girls were roaming around the north goa beaches on scooty undisturbed. Still, take care and avoid going too far from crowded places. Happy Travelling.
“Never let your fears hold you back”. I am glad that you are stepping outside your comfort zone and engaged in preemptive thinking. Just so you know, us men are scared too while travelling to new unknown places, although our concerns are a bit different than yours. For Goa, take a scooter on hire. It should be around 250 INR for a day. Food: You can have omelette bread for breakfast. Lunch and dinner, try goan fish thali 100–140 INR. For stay: You get bed bunks 200–300 pp. Okay, the above said things can be done in north Goa. I'm not very familiar with South though. Keep your phone charged and with internet connection. Goa has many inlanes. In case you get lost, it will help. Good luck!!
