You must visit Sahakari Spice Farm. It provides a completely different experience in a 1 hour tour across the farm. I visited with my family last year. We all loved it <3
You will get to know about the spices and their benefits (apart from the ones we already know). They welcome beautifully with the garlands and herbal tea. After the tour, they even organise a nice lunch. A must do for a different experience than typical Goa.
I would recommend bambolim beach as very few tourists are aware of it and so the beach is relatively virginal.Also there is this amazing temple in Panjim, which is situated close to Altinho and offers a panoramic view of Panjim city.I would recommend going there just before dusk to see both the day time view and the night sky.
Hey, Goa is an amazing experience to go for with your crew or loved ones. A few suggestions to save money would be staying near Maupsa which has cheap rented flats and major beaches are pretty close as 10 mins drive. Also, if you want to try scuba diving don't go for Anjuna beach try visiting tarkarli while returning from Goa you will enjoy water sports more there. The best part of my goa trip was Club Cabana. Don't forget to visit it. Have a great trip.
Take a day trip to bat or grande Island.
Day trip to salaulim dam and netravalli wildlife sanctuary.
Go Karting at nuvem( longest track in india)
Watch turtles(if lucky) at galgibagha beach
Trek to dudhsagar waterfall

Check into cola and palolem beach for a laid-back day.
Trip to divar and chorao Island, crocodile safari.
Do watersport at sinquerim, calangute, Mobor Beach.

Visit vagator and arambol for different vibes.
I would recommend you to visit and explore south Goa rather than North goa. North Goa is usually crowded and filled with people all the time. Where as south goa is peaceful and much beautiful compared to north. Stay at Palolem beach shacks, you can cover Honeymoon beach and butterfly beach there itself by taking a boat, and trust me the views are to die for. Also few beaches in south like Cola, Majorda, Agonda, Colva are worth watching. Of course there are party places too here. So South Goa is higly recommendable
Try visiting the beaches in South Goa. They are less crowded and beautiful. Also if possible try to stay in those backpacker hostels for a few days. That is one different kind of experiences which lets you meet various travellers. Visit the Dudhsagar water falls and do not forget to go on a night cruise on Mandovi river in Panjim.
Try Bogmalo Beach near Dabolim Airport.. It's complete isolated beach with some awesome beach front restaurant n bar.. u can stay there in a beach front home stay Leon's Hide Out.. Try Day Trip to western ghat hills via Arvalem caves n waterfall U must try 3-4 KM trekking to Dudhsagar waterfall for a breathtaking view of Gorgeous Dudhsagar.. Try Spice garden visit near Ponda
I have been to Goa 6 times at different times of the year. During October weather would be fairly good. Although the on season starts from Mid November and goes till May but it's a good time if you want to avoid huge rush. While some of the good pubs and restro can be found closed, you can explore the better side of Goa leaving these rush behind.
1. Explore south Goa. ( palolem beach, Agonda beach)
2. Doodh sagar fall which is around 120 km from north goa and around 100 km from colva beach should not be missed if you have time.
3. Netravali wild life sanctuary. 4. look for any psychedelic event happening at chapora hill .
5. arambol beach
