3. Water Sports
Given the number of beaches in Goa, water sports are an obvious favorite along the coastline. Right from scuba diving to parasailing and jet surfing, your Goa trip is the perfect excuse to tick off all those water sport adventures on your bucket list. Just like everything else in Goa, these come at affordable prices.
4. Cheap Booze
For a lot of us, a vacation is a perfect excuse to drink. And Goa does not disappoint one bit. Goa is the destination that offers super cheap booze, especially beers and locally produced wine. Another locally produced favorite is called feni, produced from Cashew nuts or Coconuts in South Goa with a 43% alcohol content.
Be it the wine shops or the beach shacks, you can always be assured of cheap alcohol in Goa.
5. Seafood heaven
Excuse my bias here, but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SEAFOOD. And that makes Goa my number 1 destination to look out for. Goa promises a lot of great food. The coastal recipes for all kinds of vegetables and meats are delectable, to say the least. But a seafood lover is very likely to take that Goa trip just to enjoy the enormous portions and varieties of seafood while sipping on to all that alcohol.
For those who don’t love seafood, can still be floored by the Chicken Xacuti, Konkani Chicken, Bebinka, Roasted Cashews (all on a budget).

For all you know, you could rent a private villa with a pool or even a private beach and enjoy Goa sans the touristy crowds.
9. Perfect Road Trip Destination
One of the most lucrative factors of taking a Goa trip is its proximity to cities such as Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad. With a distance of 500-600kms, a Goa trip is just about half a days drive with well-equipped pitstops, beautiful views, and well-planned routes. Although there are wide connectivity options like trains, buses, flights, and ferries, a road trip is the favorite choice and rightly so.
10. Budget Living
The key factor for many travelers is the budget friendliness of any destination. Goa passes the test! Right from food, drinks, accommodations, and activities, Goa offers affordable options for all travelers. Basically, you spend as per your tastes and not by compulsion which automatically tilts the scales in its favor. Also, the reason why people take regular and multiple trips to Goa across seasons.
