After a relaxing second day, i reserved my third day for exploring the city. Panaji, which is the centre point of Goa, from here, you can divert your ways to South and Noth Goa.
So, all the Churches, some view points, some sound beaches and other historic places you'll find in South Goa. But, if you're a party animal, you can plan your stay in North Goa.
I started off from Baga at around 10 in the morning and it took around 35 mins to reach Panaji on a two-wheeler. From there I took a beautiful ride towards the Basilica of Bom Jesus and Se Cathedral church. These are one of the oldest churches of India built around 500 years back. From there , I went to Dona Paula, which is famous for its beautiful view of backwaters and also for the shooting of movie Singham. Remember the fighting scene?
Enroute Dona Paula, there lies a very secluded beach, Miramar beach, which is unique in its own way. Around the beach, everywhere you'll find the crabs hatching. You'll find newly born crabs roaming around everywhere. It was quite an experience as I had never seen anything like that.
Don't confuse it with Pubg!
After Miramar, I had my lunch at Warehouse cafe which was quite amazing and during lunch, I was looking for some more places to explore as I had 1 hour of time in my hand. I found a quite unique place, which is not known by many people.
'Fontainhas' , also known as Goa's Latin quarter is famous for its unique Portuguese style architectural buildings. This place has some awesome bakeries.
It was founded in 18th century by 'Antonio Joao de Sequeira' who used this area for coconut plantations. This place has some beautiful and colourful buildings and hotels. It is yet another place away from the crowd in Goa, which will surely take you back to the Portuguese era.
Goa has never disappointed me in any way. There's so much to explore inside and outside Goa, that you'll not able to do it in one go. But yes, because of pre-lockdown situation, the crowd was very less comparatively, yet it was one of the yet another best vacations of mine.
P.S. Don't forget to witness the beautiful moonlight at Vagator beach.
